It’s likely you already have at least one pair of Havaianas. And chances are five of your friends have the exact same pair. The Brazilian-born favorites have been staples in everyone’s closet for quite some time. This spring, Havaianas is giving you the exciting opportunity to design a pair that is all your own with “Make Your Own Havaianas.” Custom-build your perfect sandal with countless foot bed and strap color combos and over 35 eye-catching add-on pins.
Once you’re done, show off your sandals (or mandals) using Havaianas’ Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr capabilities—and then email us a screenshot. We'll choose the five best, publish them on the site, and give their creators another free pair. From that five, we'll ask our readers to choose the best—The Ultimate Racked MYOH—and give that lucky winner a $250 cash prize. (Standard contest rules apply.)
Head on over to us.havaianas.com/MYOH and start designing right away for a chance to win. Fresh kicks wait for no one!
