Finally a fully fledged Havaiana Store! If you see one you could mistake it for a tropical beach in the middle of the shopping mall crammed full with bright, light footwear.
There are 40 stores spread all over the city and surrounding areas now from Copacabana to São Gonçalo. They offer the opportunity to “pimp your flops” with different colours and jewels. You can also find limited edition, mis-matched colours, glow-in-the-dark skulls and a host of newer, sportier, chunkier designs.
The simplest chinelas for R$19 in one or two colours are still the most popular but while you are there check out the range of iPad and iPhone covers which use the same cool and colourful rubber designs.
