Espadrilles a'la Liliw

Cool, comfy, colorful, open-toe, ankle strap, denim upper, locally-made abaca platform wedge sandals -- or simply, wedge espadrilles from Liliw, Laguna. Nice!

I know Mom-Finds is for the last Fridays, but I can't resist posting this yet another fab shoe find since they are only available in Tiendesitas up to the 15th of August.

I've always been a fan of espadrilles since the 80s and I had my share of those colorful slip-ons made with canvas and braided jute sole from Spain. Now they are back with a vengeance, from imported and local brands, in a multitude of colors and styles tempting those with insatiable shoe appetites.

@ P450.00 :  chic denim open-toe, 3" wedge sandals

These stylish footwear you see here are made from the town of Liliw, in the southern province of Laguna, which is known for their quality, handcrafted abaca tsinelas (slippers). They can now add espadrille sandals to their list of bestsellers. Prices range from P450 to P650 (pesos).

You can buy up to 10 pairs from this merchant with the amount you would pay for an imported pair. I also found more trendy stocks from another brand in Greenhills. Just scour the lifestyle bazaars around the city and you are bound to find locally made espadrilles you fancy, and horde! =)

Let's support our local shoe industry. Buy Liliw-made espadrilles  (",).
