Did you know that the Havaianas rubber flip-flops are inspired by Japanese zōri, the flat, straw-bottomed sandals traditionally worn by geishas. The Havaianas were originally sold as basic footwear for plantation workers in Brazil. Because they cost only $2 back then, the flip-flops became such a staple that they were added to the Brazilian government’s list of basic necessities used to calculate the cost of living, alongside rice and beans.
