Make Your Own Havaianas at Calamaba, Laguna!

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Nowadays, when you say flip-flops, many would immediately think of Havaianas!

Since the creation of Havaianas in the 1960’s, the brand has grown to become the premiere name in rubber flip-flops. The superior quality (ultra-comfortable and highly durable) Havaianas are said to be the best rubber flip-flops in the world!

These 100% rubber concoction flip-flops are made of a patented rubber formula with yummy colors and fashionable designs. Men, women and children also love the classic styles of Havaianas that would outlast any trend and still become useful for wearer for a very long time.

Havaianas are available throughout the globe in respected establishments and are featured in renowned publications, prestigious fashion shows and events.

Now, its time for it to be featured in this blog.

I recently had the opportunity to make my own Havaianas - and it was all the way from Calamba, Laguna!

There I realized it was a quick process expecially if you're a fast decision maker, though it may still take a few minutes of your time if your choice of design or color gets out of stock due to the long queue of Havaianas flip-flop lovers. Thinking of an alternative or next-favorite color could become time-consuming but it was really fun and challenging.

It was totally an adventure choosing everything from the straps, the soles, mixing and matching these and even adding pins to the straps to personalise them as you please.

Pairing the different parts of the flip-flops could also become addicting as you may want to fall in line again and decide to make another pair...hehehe

My choice, seen above,  came with a Limited Edition pin. There were probably two dozens of pins available available in Php 100 to Php 150 each, totalling your flip-flops to around Php 1k depending on your choice of which and how many pins.

First thing you have to do is find your foot size (if ever you are still not aware). They have this foot measurement as seen above so you can choose the right size.

Then pick your choice of sole. The soles come in different colors and there were also a specialty designs available that was said to have glow in the dark prints.

The choice for pins and how many you prefer is all up to you. Of course, there are corresponding additional prices for each. The more pins you want to put on your flip-flops will determine the final price. But what makes your flip-flops more valuable and even priceless is the sentimental value that is now incorporated with it since the final output is your own personal creation. That is an accomplishment worth of some praise and a sense of personal attribution. "Look, Ma! My masterpiece!" It should be framed and never to be used! Lol!


We were lucky to be visiting the first day of the Make Your Own Havaianas event at the All Flip-flops store at SM Calamba in Laguna.

Loved my creation, with the help of the ever supportive and charming store crew! It was her first time to build a pair of Havaianas so she was a bit nervous (who wouldn't), but finally managed to finish my pair before the store closed for the day (jowk!!! hehehe) Smile and keep having a positive perspective in life!

 Meet the crew of the All Flip-Flops store in SM Calamba! It seems the one I got is not the only lovely pair! Sorry this one got blurred a bit!

It will really require a bit of your imagination if you want to come out with a great pair of flip-flops!!

The product is now packed in a neat bag that also comes with three differently colored markers (so you can further customize your pair). Wow! the creativity never ends. I may really would not want to use this pair for dirty roads, and just use them in the comfort and safety of my home.

But, No!!!! I want to flaunt my Havaianas! I want the whole world to see I'm wearing one - and that it's my own handy work.

Give me all the loving, guys!!!

Thank you to all the organizers and participants of the event. More power to Havaianas!
