It garnered various reactions and comments from netizens. Some have viewed it positively as it is said to be a promotion of Manila. 

Apart from the shoes made in Marikina, Havaianas is one of my favorite foreign brands because it is really durable. It’s good to see that they make slippers inspired in Manila City. Good job, Havaianas! ” said one.

“It's beautiful! I love it. Manila is very beautiful at night and especially in aerial shots. I hope we do not put malice on it, ” said another.

On the other hand, some have not received it too well as it shows disrespect that it looks like stepping into the city relating then when Havaianas had used the Philippines flag as one of the designs of the flip-flops. 

"Formerly the Philippine flag was designed for their slippers, it was banned because the flag was trampled on, now it is Manila." 

As of now, Havaianas made no statement on this. They said their intentions were clear and that they wanted to show their love for Manila and the Philippines.
