It started out as a fad and it's expensive if you think about it.. My sister gave me a pair and comparing it to other brands of slippers especially the local ones, i think that it's quality is way better.. I guess it's worth the price.. no blisters!! If ever I'll be think of buying a pair next time, I'll be sure to wait for a really big sale so that I will get my money's worth:)

Yes I do have havaianas flip-flops. I had my first one for almost two years now. I have a total of five pairs now, two of which are gifts from my boyfriend and the other pair was given my brother-in-law from the US. I really am not addicted to it, my boyfriend thought that I liked it too much that he gave mo two for my birthday last year. But I enjoyed wearing my havainas because they are really comfortable even after long hours of wearing it in the mall, walking all the time. You're right, zero blisters!

Oh no, not really. It's quite expensive and I just got most of them as gifts. I am not thinking of buying another pair soon. But thanks for the suggestion. Have a nice day!

I would not think of buying a pair. It is really expensive. And there goes again the Filipino mentality of buying something because it's "uso" (in-season) and "mahal" (expensive). I think there is no such thing as a quality slipper. Time will always come that it has to snap. Because there is always that flaw in the design of slippers which is, they are expected to snap.

Buying what's uso and mahal is not just a Pinoy mentality. Other people do it, too.

Hi! Yes, I do have a pair. It was a gift from a friend, and I have been using it for almost a year now. Yet, it still looks good, and not really worn out like the other ones I had. I plan to save up and maybe get to buy a pair.

Hi there! I have two (2) pairs of havaianas before. It was so popular when I bought it and I've got to have two(2). But after 2 years of using it now they are gone because the strap snapped. I can't believe it when it snapped so I opted for another brand. I never bought a pair again instead I opted for another brand and its Birkenstock. I think its more durable for me. Ciao!

I went inside havaianas store out of curiosity... and saw that they were really cute and sturdy... i wanted to buy one for my daughter... but decided not too because the price was way out of my budget... so right now i cannot afford a pair... but when my financial situation eases up a bit... i might get one for me and my daughter...

i'm really not into havaiana's. i prefer other brands you should try ipanema. it's prety much expensive but it's softer and better. btw, have you tried those scented flip flops i wann atry it also :)

Yes, I have a pair of havs. I love it because it is comfortable to wear. the rubber is actually a recycled airplane tires that it why it is so durable. the only thing that my friends are complaining about havs is that there are a lot of fake havaianas in the market right now and you cannot spot the difference if you don't examine it well. Anyway, I don't care. I just love the feel of it in my feet. So comfy and I like the styles.

yes i do own three pairs of havs and its really worth it. its a value for the money. very durable and comfortable that i can also wear it anytime of the day. i guess i would still spend some for another pair because its not a waste of what i have earned. its not only because its a fad but most importantly its fashionable and flexible to use anytime, anywhere!

I don't have one since I feel like it is not practical getting one when all you need is to have a comfortable foot wear. If someone will give me a pair of havaiannas then I will be very glad to have them.

I heard a lot about it but I'm not that interested but when I read all your discussions here that convinces me to buy one for me. First because it's comfortable and second so that I am not left with my fashion.

yes I have two pairs of it. Actually its a used one given by my sister in law hahaha. I think its worth your money considering its quality is very good. But there's no perfect thing in this world and the only thing you'll notice about those flipflops after a year is the tendency of its front strap to cut or break but its really worth it.

Yes I own 4 pairs, I already is broken the straps were cut after using it for about a year. The 3 other pairs are still okay, the colors have some fade markings and it gets dirty after weeks of use even if I always clean it. Comparing it with other flip flops, they are okay, but I think there are other brands that are cheaper and are more durable like Dupe , Old Navy and Ipanema. But I have to be honest that Havaianas is still the most popular among them and the has the most fake slippers produced. =o)

nope. I dont. i just find it impractical to buy one. for me it is very ordinary and still looks the same with the spartan flip flops. especially those ones that are plain. its just a status symbol among teenagers .i love my plain black flip flops i got from walmart which was just $1. it serves the same purpose as the havs.

I don't have a pair of havaianas and I don't have plans of buying one either. I'm not a fan of slippers and I prefer shoes or sandals. The price is expensive, I can buy a shoe instead. I know its comfortable as they say but I would like walking shoes or rubber shoes instead. We have to be practical nowadays since commodities are getting high. But receiving a pair of havs as a gift isnt bad =)

I have a pair that was a gift from my dad and when it got broken, I was given a pair by my sister in law ... they're very comfy .... I'm quite short so I love their "high" design ... who knows I might get one for myself this Christmas

I dont have any pair of that expensive slippers. I wont waste money for just a pair of slippers but ill indeed spend my money more wisely by buying what is my need or my personal necessity. Due to the present crisis of our economy, one must think to be practical. Ill rather spend what i have on my basic needs or my family's need.
