Making your list? Checking it twice? For those gift-shopping trips this month, (What? Don’t tell me you cram your shopping at the very last minute.) be prepared for lots of walking to get the right item for yourself, friends, and family. What that usual means is sore feet especially if you didn’t pick the right shoe.
We’ve drummed up a list of good shoes to help ease that shopping experience without putting a strain on your feet.
Tagged as “impossibly lightweight,” you won’t have to worry about walking the mall in these Harlan + Holden Camino Canvas (P4,950). The leather insoles make them comfy when you step and the garterized insert makes sure they’ve got a good grip on your foot.
Harlan + Holden. Available at Power Plant Mall, Rockwell, Makati. For complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
One of the things you don’t need to worry about when shopping is your outfit. These Toms Black Sequin Glitz Alpargartas (P2,950) will be good to pair with pants and a shirt and even jazz it up a little in case you’re taking a detour during your spree. Toms. Available at Greenbelt 5 and Glorietta 3. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
When you want a little more breathing room and flexibility, these H&M Sandals (P899) which come in black or tan, will do just the trick. Plus, you get to show off your cute pedicure!
H&M. Available at SM Mega Fashion Hall and SM North EDSA. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
If your shopping trip is a little more hardcore, go for a trusty pair of Adidas Los Angeles Shoes (P4,395). This white pair will be a great help when running to get that last item on sale or when you just need to get to every store in record time. Don’t forget to wear your FitBit.
Adidas. Available at SM Aura Premier. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
If you just want an old reliable walking shoe, not much comes close to the Sperry Women’s Katama Cape Katama Color Block Espadrille (P3,000) which comes with a cute pattern that will really get you in the holiday mood.
Sometimes, a few puddles and showers get in the way of our shopping. It’s then best to have something that’s waterproof like the Fit Flop x Anna Sui Lattice Ballerinas in Supernavy (P7,990) so not even a few randon rain showers can stop you.
Fit Flop. Available at Bonifacio Central Square. For more information, visit their Facebook page.
