My Havaianas Broke!! Again..


Again, my havaianas broke! The strap broke off again! My first ever Havaianas' strap broke just last year (May 2005 to be exact). So this is the second time it happend to me. I'm beginning to think that these flip flops don't last long. I bought this paticular pair July of this year. And it's not as if I always use it - I alternate it with my other pairs. So why did it break off? I have no freaking idea! I wish I harrased it and used it every single day - just to justify the strap breaking off.

After this entry, I will again, write to Havaianas Philippines to complain.

Damn Havaianas!

  1. aww, that's too bad! I have few pairs of havaianas but they are all doing good. the oldest pair I got is more than a year old... I hope they give you a replacement.

  2. Thanks for the vote of confidence, but I really doubt they'll give me a replacement pair. I broke the strap of my first ever Havaianas last year and they were nice enough to give me a 20% discount, I am hoping that they extend me the same generous offer again. I feel so bad because this is my first ever Havaianas with design! Argh...

    they will replace that if it's less than a month old.

  4. I own several pairs and I've been a fanatic since 2004. I broke 2 pairs already (strap only).

    So do they really give a discount?

  5. @Jel - yes, they gave me a discount.

  6. It might be because you don't use it often enough, so the rubber hardens and when you decide to use it, it isn't flexible enough to withstand the walking, especially if you suddenly use it for a long while.

    Havaianas straps don't usually break like this, in fact, they don't usually break. They usually only end up broken if the sole is worn thin and starts to crack.

  7. Hi, mine just broke yesterday the same spot too!!! I was so upset cuz I looooved mine and wore them all the time at my yoga studio. Since i'm there a lot, they get a lot of use everyday. Weird after reading that last comment. Anyways, did you just go to the main site and write them? Just enquiring. thx

  8. We already broke 4 pairs. Slim type broke easily. I dont know, is it on how we used it? the oldest pair that broke is just 4 months old.

  9. Five months is a pitiful life for a flip-flop.

    I'm the ghost of a sandal that died young. We haunt the streets looking to be loved by our former owners. But alas! Each generation of sandals wears out and the owner moves on.

    May your flip-flops live for a few centuries! That's about two or three years in human years for you!

  10. i also did experienced the same thing. But mine break off after 4 months. It was a birthday gift from a special person, so i don't wanna discard it. i let a shoe repairman do a remedy for me to be able to use it still. Have it fixed about three times already. hope it won't break off again.
