The 411 with Make Your Own Havaianas 2017!

Havaianas, the world's favorite Brazilian flip-flop brand  has definitely outdone itself this year with its launch of MYOH!

It was a complete throwback experience last May 3 as I, media guests and flip-flop fans alike gathered at the Cable Car in Pasay Road, Makati City for the most massive flip-flop customization event in the country, Make Your Own Havaianas!

And this time, MYOH unravels a different inspiration from its usual scenic-themes and takes everyone for a spin back in time to the totally rad era of the '90s!

Everyone enjoyed the thrill in flip-flop customizing as this year’s cool new pieces include a commemorative pair that comes in a classic black sole with colorful pixels inspired by the 8-bit video games that was ‘the bomb’ during the '90s decade, and a new set of '90s-themed glow-in-the-dark pins ranging from throwback icons of a TV, cassette tape, boom box, and a video game icon! I'm sure everyone also digs the new special pins designed with lightning bolt, smiley, star, lips, and the letters M-Y-O-H too!

But what was even more awesome to look forward to here was that for the first time ever, Havaianas made use of the new 3D printing technology that can customize and print your pins with different initials!

Local celebrities and personalities even joined in all the excitement as they got to mix and match their own Havaianas pairs as well.

Don't worry if you’ve missed the fun there because MYOH is totally hanging around the all over the country on the following dates: May 12 to  14 at SM Mega Fashion Hall, SM Megamall; May 18 to 21 at All Flip-Flops Bonifacio High Street, SM City Tarlac, and SM City Iloilo; May 25 to 28 at Alabang Town Center Activity Center, All Flip-Flops SM City Naga, and SM City Cabanatuan; June 1 to 4 at All Flip-Flops Robinsons Place Ermita and Sole Patrol Robinsons Calasiao; June 8 to 12 at All Flip-Flops TriNoma and Ayala Center Cebu; June 15 to 18 at All Flip-Flops SM Mall of Asia, SM Seaside City Cebu, and SM LanangPremier; June 22 to 25 at CommonThread Powerplant Mall, Rockwell; and June 29 to July 2 at All Flip-Flops SM Megamall, SM City Cagayan de Oro ,and Red Dot Robinsons Place Ilocos.
