Last week, we were invited to the special launch of Ipanema at Rustan’s Makati. Ipanema is a brand of sandals made in Brazil that compared to it’s known competitors, they offer a wider variety of styles and not just as “slippers”. I must admit when it comes to slippers I’m quite the cheapo and can wear something you can buy at your local market BUT when I came across my first ipanema pair, I don’t think wearing cheap slippers will be the same again. They are just downright comfy! The type of pair that won’t give you corn or blisters.
“Who said that flip flops are only trendy during the
summer time?” asked Mr. Patxi Elizalde, Managing Director of ELRO Corporation,
the exclusive distributor of Ipanema in the Philippines. “At Ipanema, our
footwear is designed to complement your daily ensemble—they look good and
functional whether you’re walking on the beach or the city.”
