It all started with a sandal
Havaianas’ first design was inspired by the traditional Japanese Zori: a sandal composed of a thin sole made of rice straw and fabric straps. In 1962, the designers of Alpargatas used rubber as the main raw material and adapted the Japanese sandal to the Brazilian market using the rice grain shape as the sole’s texture guaranteed comfort, durability, and versatility to the new sandal.
