Let me formally introduce you to Jooks.
Don’t be fooled by their pseudo PAP veneer (although that was my parents’ first reactions. hahas)
Let me try to set it up for you.
a. People (assumingly, Singaporeans) backpacked through Spain
b. Crossed paths with casual, comfy shoes called Espadrilles.
c. Loved them so much they were compelled to share the love.
d. Came back to Singapore, pooled resources together to facilitate love-sharing (and money-making!)
a. + b. + c. + d. = Jooks!
So these are what Jook’s Espadrilles look like. Although I highly doubt there is much variation… made of jute rope and canvas, these are like non-waterproof slipper substitutes.
Yes. On my second day of wearing them, I got rained in on ))):
They make a great travel companion, storing quite flat. Especially in comparison with other shoes.
They fold away to the thickness of the soles, which is approximately 1.5cm tops.
And if the earthiness of my Lightbrown Eyes don’t float your boat, you can always order them in wacky colours like Gang Green, Blue Balls, Coral Sex or Red Indian! hahas.
Navyblue Dabadeebabadie! (:
And till Friday, you can get them at $18 a pop. Instead of the dreary ol’ usual price of $25.90…
Wore them to school on Monday.. (So excuse the tired, deer-in-headlights, expressionless face… 7 hours of class does that to me.)
