Slipping into a pair of Havaianas flip-flops is like walking in Brazil. A celebration of colour at your feet! Who isn’t familiar with them by now? Trendy slippers in all colours of the rainbow, with thin or thick soles, glossy or matt, solid colours or prints. It’s a tough choice, isn’t it? It really isn’t; just mix and match with your favourite outfit.
Women, men, children: everyone’s wearing Havaianas. Women can choose from elegant slippers with slender or even glitter straps. Formen, there are the iconic Havaianas Brasil, with the Brazilian flag on them, or the Havaianas Slide, without a strap between the toes. Kids can go wild with the craziest prints.
Apart from the fact that Havaianas makes especially cheerful and fun designs, the brand also thinks that sustainability and the environment are of paramount importance. Almost 10% of the entire turnover goes to a research institute dedicated to the preservation of the Atlantic Rainforest, the Amazon, and the Pantanal. It’s wonderful to know that you can support a good cause with a pair of flip-flops!
By the way, it all started in Brazil back in 1962. The first Havaianas slippers were based on traditional Japanese sandals, which had soles made of rice straw (hence the rice grain pattern on the sole of your Havaianas). Two years later, every Brazilian worker was wearing a pair. And two years later, Havaianas invented the flip-flop as we know it today. That’s right: Havaianas was there first!
