For most countries around the world, football is regarded as a religion as the relationship between the fans and football transcends to even more than sports, with a love for this game making and igniting a unique passion that drives them from simple joys to an extravagant celebrations. A passion that started with a spherical leather ball and has been passed on from generation to generation, fan to fan, and foot to foot.
In true support of football this season, Brazil’s well-loved flip-flops brand, Havaianas spreads the football love to our feet by coming out with a limited edition Teams collection – a special set of flip-flop styles that celebrate football’s greatest teams and enable football aficionados to pledge their allegiance to their favorite football team in true fashion. With a roster of 16 countries, this assortment features designs of the world’s most iconic football national teams led by the football powerhouses Brazil, Argentina, France, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Portugal among others.
For PHP 1145, you have a chance to channel the pride of these nations with its symbolic styles true to its country. More importantly, however, is that a percentage of total sales from the Havaianas Teams collection will go as proceeds to the Field of Hope – a long-term advocacy program started by Futkal founder Peter Amores to rehabilitate communities affected by the Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda, using football as a tool for social change and development. The project specifically aims to help the children from affected communities recover from the trauma, rebuild their lives and put them on the road to a brighter future through football programs.
In partnership with Project Headshot Clinic and celebrated photographer, Niccolo Cosme, Havaianas is joined by over 40 individuals, a mix of football enthusiasts, coaches, players, and some celebrities that have an affinity with football and sports in general, all with a great love for football to inspire support for the cause and help spread awareness for the advocacy.
