First created back in 1962, Havaianas was inspired by the Japanese Zori sandals, typically made of fabric straps and rice straw soles. Taking inspiration from the Zori has resulted in all Havaianas sandals donning rice patterned foot-beds, which is one of Havaianas distinctive features. Being strongly imitated, Havaianas bought out the slogan ‘Havaianas. The real ones’. Havaianas have been the go-to sandal for style and comfort for many years, delivering endless and fashionable designs for both men and women that truly captured the fun and vibrant Brazilian way of life. Made from the highest quality rubber, each pair of Havaianas is a pleasure to wear and are still being crafted in Brazil since 1962.
