Bandolino Shoes: Our Trusted Shoe Brand Through the Years

I was raised by a mom who takes dressing up seriously. She would always tell me that dressing for the occasion decently was essential because it was a form of self-respect and respect towards others. She said that doing these should not cost me an arm and leg. I should learn how to choose a few basic or classic pieces that I could mix and match. I should also not be into trends. She would reiterate that I should not sacrifice comfort or wear something that would not speak of my personality because by not doing so, I would just make a fool out of myself. 

"You are what you wear. When you wear something that you like from head to toe, you will feel good about yourself and the people around you will feel it. Your clothes and shoes will make or break you so make the right choices," she would say. Yes, indeed. It's true. She was frugal in choosing the right clothing and shoes but she would never sacrifice quality and comfort. She wasn't into expensive and branded clothing. She was very particular in supporting locally-made outfits: elegant, classic, durable, presentable, and most especially, affordable. She would say that buying local would support our Philippine-owned businesses and that would be good for our economy.

In consonance, I also heard my uncle once said to everyone, "The best-footed man is a well-dressed man." He would usually wear simple clothes during meetings or special occasions but his pair of shoes were exceptionally uncommon or unique. His shoes made his total look extraordinary. He would brag that they were Philippine-made, gawang-Marikina

Growing up in a family who treats choosing the right outfit a serious matter is an advantage. Never in my more than four decades of existence had a bad experience when it comes to choosing the right clothes especially pairs of shoes that would not cause any discomfort or uneasiness when I go out and face the world. Yes, the right outfit which includes the perfect pair of shoes could make me rule the world!

Through the years, Bandolino Shoes is one of the shoe brands that our family trusts. Bandolino never fails to deliver. Its shoes are always classic, stylish, comfortable, and affordable. All the designs are created with every possible client's personality in mind. There are a wide array of designs to choose from, from school shoes, every day wear, to formal wear. You can't get enough when you see its collection in leading department stores and now online due to the "new normal". Bandolino Shoes was founded in 1983 and still holds its title as one of the most reputable local shoe brands in the market today because it embraces change and innovation through the years. No wonder that the brand exists for almost 40 years.

The experience of wearing any pair of Bandolino Shoes can attest to what I am talking about.  Sabi nga ng mom ko, "Anak, taon ang bibilangin bago mo palitan ang Bandolino Shoes mo. Maganda at pulido lagi ang pagkakagawa at pagkakatahi. Hindi nababakbak o nasisira kahit matagal nang hindi nagagamit ang sapatos mo basta maayos ang pagkakatago. Hindi masakit sa paa kasi malambot at well-padded." Do you know that from grade school until now, hindi ako binibigo ng Bandolino Shoes? Even my friends can affirm because like us, they are also loyal Bandolino shoe users. 

I encourage you to have the same Bandolino shoe experience like our family does. You may shop Bandolino Shoes in the comfort of your own home via Shopee and Zalora. To see updates and promos, like Bandolino Shoes on Facebook and Instagram. By the way, Bandolino Shoes are catered to Asian sizes that's why mine fit well. See how I love my Marga Loafers!
