Havaianas latest MYOH Campaign Pop-Up Shop comes to South Africa! Make Your Own Havaianas – RETAIL

This was interesting news we recently came across. For the very first time the Make Your Own Havaianas initiative will be introduced in Africa.

Brazil, the country of origin, has subsequently selected South Africa as the very first African country to host this internationally successful event. From October 29th to November 4th Havaianas will bring South Africans the Make Your Own Havaianas initiative and Sandton City has been selected as the very first destination for South Africa.


Even though we’re already spoilt for choice with the Havaianas collection, what’s the harm in having even more?! A pop-up store will be set up in the Woolworths Upper court of Sandton City. Here, you will be able to customise your very own pair of Havaianas flip-flops – choosing everything from the straps, the soles, mixing and matching these and even adding pins to the straps to personalise them as you please!
