Havaianas is a 55-year-old brand that changed the face of footwear in the mid-90s by transforming functional flip-flops into a highly-desired fashion item.  Since its launch, more than 5 billion pairs of Havaianas have been sold (which if laid end-to-end, would circle the earth a generous 65 times!) Havaianas are also more than just a ‘beach companion’ for its local consumers, with 94% of Brazilians having a pair of Havaianas – it’s now a ‘way of life’ in its birthplace!  The superior standard of its products, along with its unique look and personality has transformed Havaianas into an iconic, world-famous brand manufacturing 11 pairs of flip-flops per second and generating sales of more than 240 million pairs worldwide per year.
