There’s nothing cozier than a pair of sneakers. But on extra hectic/lazy days, having to tie a shoe lace should be the least of your worries. Thank God for crazy comfy sneakers and espadrilles that you can easily slip into like a pair of socks. Speaking of which, we picked out our absolute favorites from the five brands we trust the most—bold, colorful, and absolutely wearable whether you’re in denim cutoffs or a slip dress. So go ahead, scroll down, and get your happy feet on.
Surfy Alaska and Low Cut Sauvage Carnaval, P1999
“If you can ride a bike, you can wear Paez." Tomas Pando, co-founder of the Argentinian brand, says that absolutely anyone can sport a pair of their versatile espadrilles. Envisioned from the very beginning to be a lifestyle brand that can show off the Argentinian culture to the world (it’s a working man’s shoe in their country), what began as a school project has now reached our tropical shores.
Paez is available at the R2 Level Archaeology Wing, Power Plant Mall; Level 1, UP Town Center and Rustan’s Department Stores.
Ink Leather Embroidery Women Sabados, White Canvas Abstract Women Classic
They’re in business to help improve lives…and it certainly doesn’t hurt that their products are of quality and style. Since TOMS launched back in 2006, they have given 35 million pairs of shoes to children in need. And since they launched TOMS Eyewear in 2011, they have helped restore the eyesight of 275,000 people. And now, they are on a mission to supply safe drinking water through their own Roasting Company sourced with premium coffee beans. Every purchase counts, which is why their One for One campaign is a cause that's near and dear to us.
Graphic thick-soled slip-ons, P1499
From the first time we laid our eyes on the collection they launched with their new endorser, Kathryn Bernardo, we've noticed the surprising change in Primadonna's style game. Reinventing their aesthetics to keep up with the global trends, the local brand is knocking it out of the park. Our new favorites? Their thick-soled, comic-print pieces from the Pre-Holiday collection.
Isabel prints in white and mallard, P2990
Where comfort is concerned, Sanuk would have to be at the top of this list. Their patented yoga mat insoles provide incomparable comfort which makes it the perfect travel shoe. Imagine walking with marshmallows on your soles. 'Nuff said.
Baza snakeskin print in neon yellow, Malaga watermelon print in white, P2490
Whenever people would ask us about our feelings toward Flossy, our answer would always be that it was love at first sight. With their rubber soles, uber comfy insoles, and cutesy prints, what’s not to love? Their shoes smell pretty darn good, too.
