I was invited to visit Sueño Espadrilles at The Podium last April 28, 2012. It was the first time I had ever set foot in a Sueño Espadrilles store.
It’s a very cheery orange place.
There’s almost every kind of espadrille imaginable. The cheapest pair costs about P600 while pricier ones can go up to several thousand pesos. But wait… there’s more! Sueño Espadrilles is currently running a program called Soles of Hope. For every classic pair of espadrilles sold, Sueño Espadrilles will donate P100 to the Yes Pinoy Foundation (YPF) for the benefit of the Para Paaralan Para sa Kinabukasan ng Kabataan project. Classic espadrilles are displayed in the middle of the store as you can see in the photos above and below.
Yes, these espadrille flip-flops are included in the classic line-up.
These pairs displayed on the glass tables count among the classics too.
Guests were asked to choose a pair of classic espadrilles to take home and I set my sights on this wedge-type espadrille priced at P1,995. I don’t wear flats so this was the only option for me. Unfortunately, my size was not available in black.
Thus I had to settle for this cream-colored pair. I got a size 8 since my feet are size 7.5 and Sueño Espadrilles do not come in half sizes. I was advised to size up in order to have a more comfortable fit.
There are a lot of stylish espadrilles at the store. Unfortunately they aren’t part of the classics collection.
I loved these floral wedges!
I took home the cream-colored pair which came in my size.
Anyhow, Yes Pinoy Foundation (YPF) is a non-profit organization founded by actor Dingdong Dantes. You can check it out at http://www.yespinoy.org/. YPF carries out relief drives to calamity victims, provides scholarships to needy children, and operates a mobile classroom among other charitable efforts.
Rhian Ramos was officially unveiled as Sueño Espadrilles’ brand ambassador this May 2012. She fully supports the Soles of Hope project. 🙂
You can find Sueño Espadrilles stores at The Podium, SM Mall of Asia, Greenbelt 5, Ayala Center Cebu, and SunCity (General Santos). Log on to Sueño Espadrilles on Facebook for more information.
