Boat shoes and espadrilles were all the rage back in the day, but they made a comeback in the recent months and it looks like they’re here to stay. With all the foreign brands to take into consideration, it’s good to know that there is an alternative that is made in the Philippines by Filipinos. Pelican Sole is a online, Philippine based shoe brand that offers boat shoes, which are available in canvas or leather, and canvas slip-ons. You can spend the whole day walking around, shopping and doing your errands in these shoes as they are really comfortable and are well made.
One thing that sets them apart is the attention these guys provide to customers, even after the sale. I recently ordered a pair that didn’t fit well and all I had to do was send it back to get the correct size. Unlike other online sellers that have no exchange policies, these guys really seem to genuinely care for their customers. They also give you the option of customizing your shoe. You can choose what colors to use on your shoe and what kind of sole you would like to use; You even get to name the style you created and if someone else likes it they make sure other customers know it was designed by you.
Here are their prices:
Canvas Boat Shoes – P1400
Leather Boat Shoes – P1800
Canvas Slip-Ons – P999
