Havaianas? what is havaianas exactly?

Here's a little history and info about it

"The first pair of Havaianas (pronounced ah-vai-YAH-nas) was created in 1962 by Sao Paulo Alpargatas, a highly renowned and very traditional Brazilian footwear and apparel company. It was inspired by the Zori, typical Japanese sandals made of fabric straps and rice straw sole. It is for this reason that the foot-bed of all Havaianas have a textured rice pattern, one of its many unmistakeable features.

Exclusively distributed by Viva Brasil Sdn Bhd in Malaysia and founded by Terry SA in the Philippines, Havaianas has grown to be a trend setting iconic pure rubber flip-flop fashion accessory seen on celebrities around the world such as Paris Hilton, Eva Longoria and Jennifer Aniston. With various ranges from baby to adults and a kaleidoscope of colours to match every individual out there, Havaianas is deemed comfy and classic, urban and dynamic, inexpensive and totally stylish!"
