The origins. Havaianas was created in Brazil by Scotsman Robert Fraser in 1962. His inspiration was the traditional Zōri Japanese sandals made of strips of cloth and rice straw sole, but instead of the straw, the rubber came in, sturdy and soft - made to last. The name Havaianas was borrowed from the feminine of Hawaiians in Portuguese. The Brazil-based footwear company Alpargatas are the current manufacturers of Havaianas. Initially, all Havaianas had white insoles with blue outsoles, but in the 1990s serendipitously they inverted the sole creating a monochromatic flip-flop gaining popularity.
