Where’s Wally? If you’re a kid in the 80s, I’m certain that you know what I’m talking about. I love searching for this adorable traveler in books when I was a kid. And this 2013, Havaianas released a limited edition series to commemorate its 25th anniversary.
It’s Make Your Own Havaianas 2010 once again, MYOH event is now on its fifth year. Havaianas fanatics will surely be lining up again at Rockwell Tent on April 22-26, 2010 to get their hands on customized pairs of Havaianas. What should we look forward to this Make Your Own Havaianas 2010:
By offering a number of stylish, new options- from silver Letter Pins and Swarovski-Studded Pins to Jelly, Fluorescent and Glow-In-The-Dark straps and a Philippine-designed Commemorative Sole and Pin, this year’s Make Your Own Havaianas provides more style options than ever before.
Some pins available for MYOH 2010:
Be proud being a Filipino and showcase Pinoy Pride through the “tsinelas”. Havaianas Philippines brings another collectibles for the Havaianaticos, the 2009 Limited Edition Filipinas Collection. They will be released on June 12, 2009, in celebration of Philippines’ Independence Day. The collection is specially designed and produced for the Philippines, in very limited quantity. I wasn’t able to go to the Make Your Own Havaianas 2009 event this year, but these pairs will make up for it.
Good news to all Havaianas collectors out there! The most-awaited event every summer is now here, the Make Your Own Havaianas 2009 (MYOH 2009). Just like last year, it will be held on the Rockwell Tent from May 28 to June 1. Customize your own pair of Havaianas, choose the sole, strap and the embellishments. Now is the chance to be adventurous with your Havaianas because you can go crazy with the color combination and embellishments. Care to look at my customized Havaianas last year?
The place was packed and they have to control the number of people inside hence the long line outside the tent.
Go to Rockwell Tent early… or you’ll end up falling and waiting in line for 2 hours just to get inside the tent. Knowing which styles/colors to get is also a big help to save time since you’ll also be spending an hour inside falling in line (again!) and waiting for your flip-flops to be made. If you want your flip-flops to be embellished with Swarovskis, you have to go to a dedicated counter so that means falling in line again.
Moi deciding the color combination and pins…
While waiting outside, one of the staffs will be handing out the brochures/guide (sort of an Order Form). The brochure shows the colors of the straps and soles, lifestyle pins and Swarovskis. Fill out the form, state your size, choose colors that you want and the lifetyle pins and letters you want to add.
At the counter waiting for my pairs…
For my Slim, crystal blue sole, golden sun slim strap, star and letter “b” pins
Putting pins at the straps takes time, so be patient…
They have this rule “Once holed, considered sold” policy so make sure that you state the position for your pins, especially if you want to spell out your name.
I am now a proud owner of 4 customized pairs!
For every pair of Havaianas purchased, you’ll get a stub for a free snack. The snack includes 1 pack of Holy Kettle Corn and 1 small cup of Nestea Iced Tea (I wished the cup was bigger though).

This is why I love MYOH, hubby and I get to have matching pairs. We chose to have dark brown sole, moss green straps (slim strap for me) and skull pins.
