Havaianas Hong Kong - Adding Colours To Life

There is no other brand but Havaianas that really makes the real difference and changes the world literally. A bold statement, perhaps. Yet, there is none as bold and colourful as Havaianas with its own ludicrously beautiful designs and unique splashes of colours that take the world in a splurge of colour surprise. Not merely just colourful sandals or flip flop, Havaianas redefines what it means to really live a casual, carefree and comfortable lifestyle.

Havaianas - Colourful Beginnings

Havaianas first came into existence when a Scotsman, Robert Fraser was inspired by the typical Japanese Zori sandals that are made from fabric straps and rice straw soles (which is currently owned by Alpargatas, A Brazilian company). He changed the whole course of history when he became the first man to ever mass-produce flip-flops out of rubber. The name Havaianas is derived from the Portuguese word for “Hawaiians” and the pattern of the soles of the flip flops are designed to resemble the straw soles of Zori. This is the main reason why the Havaianas are seen with a textured pattern, one of its many distinctive features.

This proud Brazilian was originally popular among the lowest social class individuals because of its extremely affordable price and its practicality (protecting their foot from any harm) and simplicity in design. But before long, everyone wanted Havaianas to colour their life. Influential Brazilians like Malu Mader, Bebeto Hortencia and Luana Piovani were extremely proud to show off their feet on Television. Even in the magazines, the pages were filled with a burst of colour and vibrant images that reflected the Havaianas upbeat mood.

Havaianas spread their wings and started placing their colourful marks all over the world like Hawaii, Australia, France and many more. They were featured in many important magazines and newspapers worldwide and literally everyone was hooked unto the Havaianas craze. Today, armed with years of experience, Havaianas continues to fill the life of their customers with a splash of colour and keeps their flip-flop game strong as one of the most popular footwear brands in the world.

  • All Havaianas products are made and designed in Brazil. So check the labels, if it is stated otherwise, the product is a fake.
  • Always look for the authenticity logo on any Havaianas product you purchase!
  • Havaianas are made according to a patented formula that is made up of a mixture of rubber- they don’t smell, they don’t lose their shape and are breathable- counterfeit products are recognisable because they're badly made.

How should I clean my Havaianas slippers?

This is the recommended procedure to clean your Havaianas slippers:

  1. Rinse your Havaianas in warm water.
  2. Brush the sole and the straps with mild soap using a soft bristle brush.
  3. Rinse until all the soap is removed;
  4. Dry with a soft cloth or leave to dry out of direct sunlight.

The process above allows you to clean without damaging the product. In the case of light colours (such as white) as with any shoes, it is not guaranteed that the product will completely recover the original tone, as this will depend on the use and frequency of cleaning. Do not wash any Havaianas products in a washing machine as it will damage the product.
