I was a fan of Havaianas slippers before i realized that they are just normal slippers. lol Before I started working in a BPO industry I couldn’t afford to buy a pair of Havaianas slippers. They are so expensive but I liked them.
When I worked in Cebu and earned a little higher than my usual salary I bought my very first havaianas slippers. They were glow in the dark slippers. They lasted for a year! 😦
I usually wear slippers when I go to malls. One day, while I was walking around Ayala Mall Cebu my slippers’ head strap got cut. I was forced to buy my second Hava slippers.
This is my favorite pair of Havaianas slippers. I wore them almost everyday! I don’t like wearing shoes and slippers are more comfortable than them. But like all other flip flops / slippers, no matter how much you love them they would still leave you. 😦 Yes the same fate happened to my favorite pair of slippers. I think they lasted for more than a year. Again I bought another pair of Havaianas slippers. Of course, I didn’t want to buy other brands of slippers. I know for a fact that other slippers are weaker than Havaianas. These are my third flip flops / slippers:
I really find them very cute, that’s why I bought them. But after just a couple of months the drawings started fading. And a few months after, they suffered the same fate again. BROKEN!
I just realized I’ve been spending a higher amount of money just for a pair of slippers and then they leave you brokenhearted! So, I decided to buy the cheap ones. And guess what?! They’re just the same. Though, it feels different if you know you are wearing a pair of Havaianas slippers but the comfort is still the same.
I still visit Havaianas stores but I don’t buy their slippers anymore. I also noticed that they don’t have interesting designs and they’ve become more expensive. Now that I am back here in Davao, my salary is lower and I cannot afford a more expensive pair of Havaianas.
I would still want to buy someday but I would only buy then if they will release a new design that would really catch my attention.
Every year we have what we call “Make Your Own Havaianas” and this is being done all over the country. I first witnessed this event in SM Cebu and now they also do this here in Davao. This year the MYOH in Davao happened last week at Abreeza Mall. Since I decided not to buy their slippers all I did was visit them and took some pictures. lol
Near the entrance of Abreeza they built a Hot Air Balloon with Havaianas Slippers on it. The balloon itself was made of Havaianas slippers. A lot people went there to have a picture taken. And one night before going home, me and my friend noticed that there were no people taking their pictures. So, we took our chance and had a picture taken with the Hot Air Balloon.
For now, this is all I could do with Havaianas. Like I said, I would only buy a pair of slippers if they have a very catchy design that I like. 😀
