STAND UP FOR THE REAL! FAKE HAVAIANAS ARE NOT COOL

 

At Havaianas we know how demanding our customers are, that is why we would like to make you aware of the existence of counterfeits. Some websites offer fake Havaianas, which even though they may look alike, they’re not the original ones.

 

Havaianas isn’t only a synonym for style, but also high-quality, ethics compliance and comfort, so if you buy counterfeit products you’re giving all of this up.

 

For this reason, since our very beginnings, back in 1962, we’re fully dedicated and committed to fighting the global phenomenon of counterfeit, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. Would you like to give us a hand?๐Ÿ˜Š

 

SOME TRICKS TO SPOT HAVAIANAS COUNTERFEITS

 

๏ƒ˜ To ensure that you purchase only genuine Havaianas products when buying online, be aware that counterfeit Havaianas are often advertised as "cheap Havaianas" or "discount Havaianas". If the price is significantly cheaper than the original Havaianas, it will probably be a counterfeit… In other words, if it’s too good to be true, they’re probably not ours.

 

๏ƒ˜ Havaianas are made-up of a patented formula consisting of a mixture of rubbers – they don’t smell, don’t deform and don’t conduct heat. Fake products are recognizable because of their poor workmanship.

 

๏ƒ˜ We don’t offer our products through street vendors, flea markets or unauthorized retail locations. If you purchase at any of these places, it’s very likely that you’re buying fake products.

 

๏ƒ˜ You will always find an authenticity hologram on every Havaianas product you purchase.

 

๏ƒ˜ Brazil is the homeland of Havaianas - all Havaianas are made or designed in Brazil.

 

If you’re unsure about the origin, please contact us and we will let you know if the store is an authorized retailer.

 

COUNTERFEITS ARE DANGEROUS

 

Havaianas footwear has high quality standards and cannot be compared to the poor workmanship of non-authentic merchandise. Original products are made from a rubber formula that guarantees both comfort and safety.

 

Be wary that counterfeit Havaianas don’t usually comply with health and safety regulations, and they may cause serious skin irritations and discomfort during use.

 

COUNTERFEIT IS A CRIME!

 

Counterfeiting is illegal. It has a significant impact on the global economy, costing us all over $1.7 trillion a year and the destruction of thousands of job posts.

 

The manufacturers of counterfeit products don’t pay taxes, don’t pay fair wages to their employees and often use child labor, while the lucrative sales of counterfeit goods are financing organized crime activities. When you purchase a counterfeit product, you’re funding and supporting this criminal activity.
