Did You Know? Havaianas Sandals

Havaianas Employee Gifts

Did you know that….

1. The name Havaianas is Portuguese for Hawaiians.

2. The ’98 World Cup birthed one of Havaianas best selling and notable styles—the “Brasil”. To celebrate the ‘98 World Cup, Havaianas launched a style with a small Brazilian flag on the strap which soon became an object of desire internationally.

3. Havaianas officially became a fundamental part of Brazilians’ lives.  In fact, they were even listed by the Brazilian government in a list of fundamental products to control inflation, just like rice and beans.

4. Between the threat of the Millennium bug and anxiety for the year 2000, Havaianas created a special model to mark the occasion. It was the first sandal that glowed in the dark.
