My Honest Review

Since 2010, I’ve been attending the annual Make Your Own Havaianas Special Preview event here in Cebu. Though I’m not a fashionista (and definitely not a brand conscious person), I still enjoy some fine things especially if I don’t need to buy them. (: In all honesty, of all the flip-flops brands I’ve known, Havaianas really has a very good branding, and like some elite brands, a lot of people are more than willing to buy it because it’s chic and highly fashionable. Other than that, who would not dream of buying something that is being worn by famous celebrities and socialites?
Cool and trendy
The cool/trendy factor plays a big role why Havaianas is very saleable. This has been heightened even more by the brand’s annual activity that brings havaianaticos together – the Make Your Own Havaianas (MYOH). The brand pioneers the slipper customization trend which has been wholeheartedly embraced by fashionistas and trendsetters all over the globe. Now, who doesn’t want a pair of his or her own Havaianas?
Cute pins and colorful straps
These accessories bring more life and individuality to each pair of Havs – one of the main reasons why the brand is more appealing compared to other fashionable flip-flops.
Not ideal for everyday use
As the brand suggested, Havaianas is more of a fashion item than normal footwear. When it comes to durability, there’s no guarantee that it will last for a year or two especially when it comes to the flip-flops’ straps. Though its flat soles provide better comfort compared to ordinary sandals, its straps are not that durable, and thus, it is not ideal to wear it regularly. Two of my pairs have already been thrown out because the front straps broke and there’s no way that they can be repaired. ): This is also the feedback I often heard from some of my friends. I hope Havaianas can do something with the straps. The soles are really comfortable and it’s a shame to throw them because of the damaged straps.
I highly recommend Havaianas to all fashionistas and brand conscious individuals out there, but for those ones who are looking for flip-flops that they can wear regularly (more especially to those who love to walk most of the time), then this brand is not for you. (:
In the past, flip flops or slippers were considered as a poor man’s footwear, an exact opposite to the common trend nowadays. Slippers nowadays are already used as fashion accessories and famous people are commonly seen wearing them.
The Most Liked Brand of Slippers
One of the most popular brands of slippers that gain massive following of loyal customers from all walks of life is Havaianas, a brand of flip flops that originates from Brazil. Havaianas slippers are very durable and comfortable to wear. But, one thing that makes Havaianas unique from other brands is the fact that they give customers the freedom to customize their pair of slippers according to their style and preference.

Last Thursday, I attended the VIP and Media Launching of Make Your Own Havaianas 2010 at Northwing Atrium, SM City Cebu. The event was held in celebration of Havaianas’ 5th year of chic and colorful flip-flop customization.
When I received the invitation from the organizers few days before the event, I immediately told them that I can’t attend because I’m still in the office until 6PM (the event will start at 4PM). Fortunately, they told me that it’s not a problem because the event will run until 8PM. But, I was still doubting because I hate to be late when it comes to attending events or gatherings. Being tardy is not just my thing. I was just convinced to attend when all my co-CBS members who were also being invited were all sure that they will go.
Well, when I arrived at the venue (it was around 6:30PM), I was a bit confused of the event’s set-up. I thought there will be some party or something, then it dawned on me that we were being invited to actually experience the process of customizing our own pair of slippers.
I saw a few of my CBS colleagues lining up in the Havaianas booth already checking out their customized pairs. And unexpectedly, for the very first time, I experienced the fun of customizing my flip-flops.
I chose the white MYOH 5 limited edition for my pair of soles and a pair of gray straps with a “glow in the dark” logo. I then picked up the turtle and star pins to adorn the upper straps of my slippers. And, voila! My very first pair of Havaianas was born. LOL! Thanks a lot to Havaianas! (:
