Launched in 1962, Havaianas (pronounced ah-vai-YAH-nas), Portuguese for Hawaiians, are fashioned after classic Japanese Zori sandals. Pulling inspiration from the silhouette’s simple design and rice-straw soles, Havaianas flip-flops to pay homage to the original concept with an inventive rice-texture footbed. Initially available in 8 color combinations, the brand has expanded to over 20 hues. Havaianas sandals are now available in limited-edition designs, bright patterns, and streamlined silhouettes, fueling the brands unprecedented cult following worldwide.
