I had a friend who grew up thinking that scuba socks were real shoes and one time, he walked around our university campus wearing them. Though an unconventional choice, I understood why: scuba socks are so comfortable, not to mention completely unfussy. If you accidentally step on a puddle, no problem.
Still, not all of us are as bold as he (or was he just unaware?). For the better informed, plimsolls by Flossy are an attractive alternative. Hailing from the Rioja region of Spain, the casual footwear brand was launched in the Philippines last week. Available in 25 countries across the UK, the Middle East, and Baltic states, the brand is known for ultra-comfortable soles and fun prints.
They even have a scuba sock-inspired style made with neoprene in colors like neon green and pink, so no faux pas here.
Flossy. Available at SM The Block, Alabang Town Center, Res|Toe|Run outlets, and online at Zalora.com.ph. www.flossyshoes.com
