These days, white sneakers are widely considered a shoe-rack staple and we can see why—the versatile color goes with pretty much every outfit and the light-catching shade lets your kicks stand out against any plain outfit. The obsession with white sneakers—and the minimalist aesthetic they're often associated with—has also spawned a love for shoes in neutral tones and pastel colors. And while we're all about that elegant look, there's just one problem: Shoes in lighter colors are almost always difficult to clean.
We know you know the frustration when, just days after purchasing your brand-new white lace-ups, they're covered in specks and scratches. And dirty shoes just never look as put-together as when they're fresh off the rack. We're not saying you should stop buying white or light-colored kicks all togther, but if you're looking for a pair that can withstand your walks through the dusty, puddle-covered streets of Metro Manila, check out local brand Ducky.
Ducky, an online brand established in early 2021, provides practical shoes that are not only stylish, but also comfortable and best of all, easy to clean. Their flagship shoe, the Rubber Ducky, is a slip-on sneaker that's as functional as it is fashionable. The no-frills shoe features a mostly plain design with a solid tone up top and a white rubber sole punctuating its color. The upper is made from waterproof vegan leather, which promises to stay intact even after some accidental spills or splashes and can easily be cleaned with water, rubbing alcohol, and a towel. The shoe also promises comfortable all-day wear thanks to a breathable inner lining and padding for extra support and cushioning.
The Rubber Ducky is available in several colors from neutrals like off-white, beige, black, brown, and olive as well as stand-out shades like yellow, blue, and red. Its versatile design lets you pair the slip-on with a variety of oufits and could quickly become your go-to for errands, hangouts, or casual work days. And with all the colors they've got in their lineup, you're sure to find a shade that fits your personal style.
