  1. @Badet I just talked to the PR of Havaianas Philippines and they said they will issue a statement next week. I’ll post about it so you’ll know where to have your havis exchange.

    @Lemuel honestly I can’t bring myself to buy more than P500 worth of slippers. I am a staunch supporter of Filipino goods.

  2. think they really are accommodating exchanges…
    you can ask form the store pero that’s what the distributor said in the interviews.

  3. Waaah, meron akong Kids Lucky Bug. Sa sobrang kaadikan ko, pati size ng pambata pinagkasya ko… Would you know kung pwede rin isoli sa local Havs stores dito?

  4. hi! havaianas are really nice to see and are very attractive to kids, they are a bit expensive though so i think we can help our country’s industry by just buying local brands. there are a lot of local brands that are durable too. by buying Pinoy, we help our economy and provide jobs to our fellow pinoys. Thanks!
