This year, Havaianas goes beyond looking at summer as just a season where people go to the beach and escape to the most exciting adventures. More than that, it’s transforming summer into an action word, as in “Let’s Summer,” which is the brand’s campaign message. Look at it as an invitation to enjoy the greatest and most fun things that the “coolest” season of the year (irony fully intended!) can offer.

Havaianas Let's Summer

Let Havaianas kick off the “summer-ing” with National Flip-Flops Day, happening on March 3. Join in welcoming the happiest and sunniest season of the year with a day that’s full of offers and treats. Get ready for a major flip-flop haul because Havaianas is giving away a cannot-miss 20% discount on all regular-priced pairs storewide, nationwide, and even sitewide at www.havaianas.ph (plus FREE shipping!) for just one day.

Save the date and make sure to head to selected stores early to cop the limited Havaianas Summer Kit, which is available from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. only. To score one, just purchase at least P1,500 worth of Havaianas pairs on March 3 and get the kit for P399. It contains summer-themed temporary tattoos, a dry bag, and a water-resistant travel pouch. It’s a no-brainer: All of these are a must-have for the summer.

Havaianas Let's Summer

But, wait! Havaianas promises more surprises in the coming weekends. The fun continues until March 18 with discounts on women’s sandals, and Aftersport collection on different weekends of the month. At the same time, awesome promos on the Havaianas beach ball, dry bag, and water-resistant travel pouch will be up for grabs at the online store. As the saying goes, “good things come to those who wait,” so stay tuned on when exactly these will happen.

In the meantime, slip into a comfy pair, head over to All Flip-Flops and selected retailers nationwide, and #LetsSummer with Havaianas on March 3 for National Flip-Flops Day!

Every year, Make Your Own Havaianas (MYOH) lets fans step into a different place with the fun themes that inspire the flip-flop customization experience.

It has taken everyone to colorful Brazil, sunny Hawaii, and kawaii Japan. This year, Havaianas sets foot into a different time and, hands down, one of the best decades ever – the 90s.

From music to fashion, movies to TV shows, toys and games, to slang, and the list of reasons why it was an awesome decade goes on. It was a simpler time.

2017 commemorative pair

This year’s commemorative pair is a must-have. It comes in a classic black sole with pixels, inspired by the 8-bit video games that defined the decade.

The pins also hark back to the 90. The choices include throwback icons of a TV, cassette tape, boom box, and a video game icon. There’s a pin that simply says “I ❤ 90s” for those who lived through this rad time.

Back in the day, bedrooms were a whole lot cooler if they were glow-in-the-dark. So, Havaianas has come up with glow-in-the-dark pins that come in five super fun designs: a lightning bolt, smiley, star, and lips.

Ayala Center Cebu, SM Seaside City

In Cebu, this year’s MYOH will have two legs. Head to All Flip-Flops Ayala Center Cebu on June 9 to 12 and All Flip-Flops SM Seaside City on June 15 to 18 for something very cool, or as ‘90s kids would say, totally phat. For the first time ever, Havaianas makes use of 3D printing technology that can print pins before your eyes.

April marks the onset of full-on sizzling summer in the Philippines. It also marks one of the most anticipated events in the calendar, Make Your Own Havaianas. From April 22 to May 1, step into a celebration of self-expression and creativity inside All Flip Flops SM Seaside City at the lower ground floor of the mall’s Mountain Wing and mix and match buttery-soft, colorful soles with vibrant straps and fun pins.

MYOH2016-Havaianas-2

Havaianas was born in Brazil in 1962, but an interesting fact is that the very first flip-flop was inspired by the Zori, a type of Japanese sandal made of fabric straps and rice straw roles. Today, Havaianas flip-flops show marks of these iconic rice patterns, making it a fusion of eastern Zen and western joy.

MYOH2016-Havaianas-1

Always Summer

Each year, MYOH highlights a destination or theme that celebrates its heritage or encapsulates the ‘always summer’ state of mind and on its 11th year, it is its Japanese roots that MYOH pays tribute to, from this year’s 2016 limited edition commemorative sole inspired by Shibori, a Japanese fabric-dyeing technique, to its selection of kawaii pins. With Japan being an all-time favorite summer destination of Cebuano Havaianaticos, embellishments such as the The Sakura, Ramen, The Japanese Fan, The Empress, The Zori, Ninja and statement pins, among others celebrate the love for travel and the land of the rising sun’s unique lifestyle and influence on today’s pop culture.

What better way to celebrate the new chapter in the saga, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, than with a flip-flop pair or two adorned with such iconic characters as the skillful Jedi, fearless Stormtroopers, wise and powerful Yoda, robot duo C3-PO and R2-D2, young and heroic Luke Skywalker and the dark side’s villain of all villains, Darth Vader?

Paying tribute to its roots, this year’s Make Your Own Havaianas (MYOH) in Cebu goes on longer and takes on a Hawaiian feel.

The MYOH 2015 in Cebu started May 7 and will go on up to the 17th of the month to give customers more time to pick their favorite combination of Havaianas pair or pairs, said A.L. Amizade, Inc. marketing director Leanne Florendo.

“The Portuguese who came up with Havaianas were inspired by the Hawaiian lifestyle, which is about being laid back and enjoying life,” she said.

MYOH Cebu 2015

HAWAIIAN LIFESTYLE. The Portuguese who came up with Havaianas were inspired by the Hawaiian lifestyle, which is about being laid back and enjoying life, said A.L. Amizade, Inc. marketing director Leanne Florendo.

Havaianas is Portuguese for Hawaiians, according to Florendo, citing that the MYOH theme for its 10th year is Hawaii-inspired in homage of the brand’s heritage.

MYOH Cebu 2015

Still being held at the Northing Atrium of SM City Cebu, the MYOH Cebu 2015 is set up like a typical day at the beach, with the cabana, surfboard, bike, and lounger decorations.

Unlike in past events, where customers rushed through creating their favorite flipflop pairs because of the huge turnout and limited days, the Make Your Own Havaianas 2015 in Cebu allows them to take their time with their choices as they have 10 days to do so.

MYOH Cebu 2015

10 DAYS. Unlike in past events, where customers rushed through creating their favorite flipflop pairs because of the huge turnout and limited days, the Make Your Own Havaianas 2015 in Cebu allows them to take their time with their choices as they have until May 17 to do so.

“Those who came to our past events hardly enjoyed creating their Havaianas pairs as they found themselves lining up the whole time. They walked away with a Havaianas product but didn’t really have a Havaianas experience,” Florendo pointed out.

A.L. Amizade, which is the exclusive distributor of Havaianas in central and western Visayas, wants Cebuanos to have the Havaianas experience in MYOH Cebu 2015.

HAWAIIAN SOLE. In Cebu, A.L. Amizade is offering only the Hawaiian sole of blue skies, palm trees, and hibiscus flowers, which is designed by Havaianas artists.

Hawaiian sole

Since Havaianas establishments were given a lot of leeway with their MYOH arrangements this year, the event now differs from city to city.

In Cebu, A.L. Amizade is offering only the limited edition Hawaiian sole of blue skies, palm trees, and hibiscus flowers, which is designed by Havaianas artists.

“The beauty of this is the strap changes the personality of the sole. Our choice of strap allows us to communicate our personality even with this one sole design,” said Florendo.

The simultaneous holding of MYOH 2015 events across major cities in the Philippines is also another thing that’s different this year.

There are at least eight sole and strap colors and 30 pins to choose from. Available soles are Havaianas top and slim as well as a commemorative pair. The cost of a sole and strap combination ranges from P895 to P945 and P50 to P150 for the pins.

9th year of MYOH

This is the ninth year that MYOH has been held in Cebu and fans of the flip-flop brand continue to come to create their own special pair or pairs, said A.L. Amizade Marketing, Inc. marketing director Leanne Florendo.

“The thing about Havaianas is that it’s a fun brand and the MYOH is the ultimate way for Havaianas lovers to express their personalities,” she added. Amizade is the exclusive distributor of Havaianas slippers in Central and Eastern Visayas.

WITH ENTHUSIASM. Cebuanos have greeted the yearly Make Your Own Havaianas event with enthusiasm, according to marketing director Leanne Florendo.

Florendo said similar MYOH events had been held in key areas in the Philippines, including Manila, Cagayan de Oro, Subic, Laoaog, Davao, and Bacolod.

Cebu response

She added that in Cebu, the Cebuanos have greeted the yearly Make Your Own Havaianas with enthusiasm.

“It’s not surprising that we’re now on our ninth year. Even after an MYOH had just ended, many Havaianas fans would ask when our next event would be,” she cited.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR PAIR. You can customize your pair using at least eight sole and strap colors and 30 pins. Shown above is the commemorative pair.

Florendo, who said she stopped counting her Havaianas pairs a long time ago, said they were very confident in the brand when they brought it to Cebu in 2005 and they still feel that way today.

“Although it’s priced higher than other flip-flops, you get the value for your money. It provides a certain amount of comfort and durability that can’t be found in many brands,” she added.
