The rise and fall of fads depend on the time of the year. For instance, November and December call for an increase in anything green and red, while the hot summer months make swimsuit sales skyrocket. But now that the country is experiencing a cooler, wetter climate, one of the ultimate must-haves is a pair of shoes that can withstand the rainy season. During this period, waterproof shoes for women are the go-to, and a cute pair is a priority on the shopping list. The following models are not only waterproof and suitable for the office dress code, but can also double as casual shoes.
Since Native Shoes’ creation in 2009, it has kept up with its principle of being a beast-free establishment that offers innovative and “lite” footwear options. All pairs have zero traces of any animal and are made up of EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) material which makes them flexible and water-repellent. The one-of-a-kind Audrey Pair is Native’s only pair of flat shoes, and it is very appropriate for the workplace. The pair has eleven color options in all, namely: Floyd Pink, Glass Green, Groovy Yellow, Jiffy Black, Milk Pink, Mist Grey, Regatta Blue, Shell White, Skin Patrol Red, Sunset Orange, and Wave Blue.
Tykes Trading Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Melissa Shoes in the Philippines.
Melissa originates from Brazil and features offerings that are 100% made out of plastic instead of rubber, thus making them lightweight, waterproof, and comfortable. In addition to this point of pride, the brand has also partnered up with some world-renowned designers such as Viviene Westwood for some of its collections. One suitable shoe that you can wear to work is the Prana pair. It comes from Melissa’s Flats line and has three color choices: Beige, Beige/Black, and Black.
Aside from flats, Faux Pas Paris also offers waterproof sandals.
Faux Pas Paris’ shoes are made out of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride) material which makes them safe to wear whatever the weather forecast might be. The company is also a “Do-It-Yourself” brand that allows customers to personalize some of their collections. For office shoes, its Opera Flats have many fun color options to choose from. The shoes will not only make your formal office wear outfit more interesting, but they will also add style to casual wear as well.
Aside from phycisal stores, CLN also has an online shop where its products are readily available.
CLN is a well-known and well-loved Filipino brand that offers not only different kinds of shoes but apparel and bags as well. Opened in 1978, the brand now has more than 70 branches nationwide. To complete your office outfit, try its Kindle1 Flat Ballerina Shoes. The shoes are basically jelly flats made out of PVC material with a funky fur accessory. The shoes come in three colors: Gray, Pink, and Black.
Hush Puppies was launched in 1958 and at present, 165 countries worldwide have Hush Puppies locations and more than 17 million pairs of shoes are sold yearly. The brand uses Scotchgard leather protector, a type of patented technology, which makes the materials used for the shoes both stain and water resistant. One Hush Puppies shoe for the rainy season that you can wear to work is the Deborah pair. It is made out of full-grain waterproof leather, with a lightweight PU leather outsole, and a pigskin lining. The pair has two color options to choose from: Black WP Leather and Tan WP Leather.
