Havi's History

Think you know everything there is to know about Havaianas? We’ve got some fun facts for you!

Havaianas are Brazilian born and bred

Since our birth in 1962 Havaianas have been made in Brazil for over 55 years.

Our design was inspired by the Japanese Zori sandal

Made of quality Brazilian rubber, the texture of Havaianas rubber soles are also like rice grains, a nod to the traditional Zori style which was made from rice straw. This is one of many design details that make our thongs unique!
What our name means

Havaianas means “Hawaiians” in Portuguese. We were named in honour of the beautiful country of Hawaii; a popular holiday destination that is full of glamour and summer vibes. 

We only used to come in blue and white until..

A production error produced a batch of Havaianas with green straps. People love the different colour, so we made more!
Sometimes we glow in the dark!

Every year we release styles that glow in the dark. But did you know we made the first ever pair in 2000 to commemorate the new Millennium and people’s fear of the Millennium bug! 

2006 was a big year

Our famous slim style, featuring a thinner and more delicate strap, was introduced in 2006. Women all around the world immediately fell in love with it!  

We break records

In 2006 Havaianas entered the Guinness Book for the first time! Thousands of people gathered on beaches all around Australia to float on thong shaped lilo’s, creating the longest line of its kind in the world. The funds raised from the challenge were donated to local Surf Life Saving clubs. Go us!
We make shoes too

Our Soul Collection first launched in 2010, featuring a range of casual sneakers and espadrilles with our much-loved and signature comfortable rubber soles. 

We turned 55 last year

In celebration of our 55th anniversary, we launched a limited-edition Tributo style that pays homage to the first Havaianas ever created! 
We live all over the world

You can now find Havaianas all over the world and in every colour imaginable. 
Havaianas have become the summer style essential for everyone, anywhere, anytime: made for summer and made of summer.
