Flip the Flop with Havaianas
The most recognisable flip flops every summer have to be Havaianas!
Havaianas are a Brazilian brand of flip-flops created by Scotsman Robert Fraser in 1962 (although it is currently owned by Brazilian manufacturing company Alpargatas). Fraser became the first to mass-produce flip-flops out of rubber and the name Havaianas is derived from the Portuguese word for “Hawaiians”. Originally, all Havaianas featured white insoles with coloured outsoles and straps. Because of their simplicity and low price, the sandals became popular with Brazil’s lowest social classes.
Nowadays, it is very much a different story and in some places it’s even possible to customise your Havaianas with names, beads and colours. They have a soft foam insole, soft straps, rubber sole and are even non-slippery when wet (which is great for when you’re trying to catch your little ones running by the side of the pool!)
The Havaianas brand embodies what it means to be Brazilian: free-spirited, passion for life and an instinct for improbable combinations. Over the years, the design and collaboration projects with famous stylists have made the Havaianas even more sought after. Today, the distinctive manufacturing mark is particularly the rainbow of colours in which the collections are available.
From the beach to the bar Havaianas will walk you through your summer memories. There are designed with both style and comfort in mind and are perfect for long adventurous walks or strolls along the beach. They fast became a fashion statement in the UK with every man (and his wife) wearing them for almost every occasion.
