Keen to make your own Havaianas?

Last night I popped into the V&A Waterfront to visit Havaiana’s new pop-up shop in the barrow market court. (It’s literally just outside the Havaiana’s shop, just below the Numetro theatres.) They’re exploring a pretty cool concept where you get to make your own customised pair of flip-flops.

Snapping the Havaiana wheel of fortune while it was upside was regretable.

How does it work? You simple pick out a sole, choose a pair of straps and can then add a cutesy li’l charm. It then takes less than two minutes for a friendly staff member to slap it all together and BOOM, you’ve got a custom pair of Havis. For the record, that’s the ‘boy wheel’ pictured up top. There’s a ‘girl wheel’ too and even more colours to pick from at the bar.

Decisions, decisions...
Decisions, decisions…

If you’re keen, you’ll find the pop-up slop bar (God, that sounds funny!) running until Monday the 17th. Price-wise, you’re looking at from R250 per pair so it’s a super affordable li’l treat.

These are the Havis I created. Do we like?

Love, love

  1. Thank goodness this has finally arrived here! It’s being happening in Brazil for years; and the prices are on par!
