Havaianas was born in 1962 on the sunny shores of Brazil. It was inspired by the clean lines of the Japanese “Zori”, flat and thonged sandals made of rice straw, and the breezy, island culture of Hawaii. A secret 100% rubber formula set it part from other flip-flops that use EVA and PVC by giving it extreme comfort, reliable durability, and the ability to retain its original shape through every step.

Since then, over 3 billion pairs of Havaianas have been sold all over the world; and if every pair was lined up toe to heel, Havaianas would circle the world 40 times. It is now available in 78 countries in all the colors of the rainbow and in fun, fashionable and functional designs featuring classic styles, the latest trends and even collaborations with high fashion design houses. In the Philippines, where Havaianas has been present in 2003, the brand has firmly cemented its place in the hearts and on the “soles” of Filipinos.  From what was once considered to be the “lowly” flip-flop, it is now a household name the world over and has been worn by everyone from beach combers, babies, stylistas, sports icons, designers, celebrities and even royalty.
