Havaianas - Flip Flop

Havaianas has been spreading Brazilian spirit around the world since 1962, with its iconic rubber sole and bright, colorful and summer-infused designs. Every pair of Havaianas flip flops is still designed and made in its birthplace, Brazil. Havaianas´ first design was inspired by traditional Japanese Zori: a sandal composed of a thin sole made of rice straw and fabric straps. In 1962, the designers of Alpargatas used rubber as the main raw material and adapted the Japanese sandal to the Brazilian market using the rice grain shape as the sole texture guaranteed comfort, durability, and versatility to the new sandal. In 2007, Havaianas expanded beyond Brazil and planted their roots in the US by opening an office in NY and just a year later in Europe.
