Domenicca was born from the union between two large national passions: flip flops and the beloved soccer. Our Founding Director has closely followed the evolution of the Spanish and Italian soccer clubs. Several good ideas were conceived at what seems almost obvious and brought forth the thought: "Why I didn’t think of that?". Today it may seem that it was a simple idea, but at that time it was subdued, rated as unlikely. The licensing linked to soccer clubs was still restricted to a few products and untapped for a number of others, which are now easily found in the market. Like an idea that does not leave the paper is nothing, the work was gradually initiated. Our first job was convincing club by club that flip flops should be launched as soon as possible. The company raised the common distrust to all innovative proposal. One of the most recurrent placements was "a supporter would not step on his team ..." Then came our explanation: the fans would walk with their teams. Thus was born the slogan: “Domenicca - walking with your team” As soon as the first club signed up the sales began. Retailers bet on flip flops and consumer response was undeniable, consolidating the "soccer flip flops" as a reality. Domenicca not only started a national manufacturing operation of licensed products, but also opened precedent for a number of companies that followed in his footsteps with the most varied products, becoming a national reference.
When thinking about a business joint which would dedicate all it’s efforts to make flip flops reach the majority of feet, naturally several contents have emerged. The week day named Sunday has flashed, as it’s a flip flop day, a relaxing day, to lay your feet on the air. It’s also the perfect day for visiting the beach, having barbecue with friends and family and also to watch your favorite club play. So brands name had to have “domingo” on it’s name, which is explicit as domenica stands for Sunday in Italian
Within the soccer flip flops consolidated on the market, having partnerships with dozens of Brazilian Soccer Clubs, a new challenge was born: to expand our operations. Soon we started investing on cartoons, surf, skate, racing, martial arts, fashion and art in general, having a whole new universe of products and patterns.
