Cole Haan 2017 Fall Collection at Ayala Malls The 30th

Thursday, August 31, 2017

     What qualities do you look for or consider when buying a pair of shoes? For me, it's always comfort because I have a very, when I say very it's very, very, sensitive feet. I get blisters and corns easily that's why I always make sure to buy the style that will take me to many places, literally.

     I never thought that an expensive brand such as Cole Haan has designs that are fashionable yet comfortable to wear. Extraordinary comes to life when Cole Haan Philippines opened their 7th store at Ayala Malls The 30th and I'm one of the lucky guests who got the first dibs on the reveal of their 2017 Fall Collection. See photos and highlights of the store opening below :)

     The store follows the design of the brand’s stores in the United States. The neutral color palette that's traditional and modern best describes the 107-square meter space. It is well lit that's why I was able to take a nice photo to show the details of the shoes. The display includes men's and women's footwear, apparel, handbags and accessories.

#WhichGolaAreYou UK's Gola Sneakers Launch

Monday, July 11, 2016

     If my memory serves me right, I've seen an old friend wearing Gola sneakers ten years ago. I was in college back then and in one of our unplanned meeting, he was sporting a brown sneakers with the word Gola printed on the lower side of the shoes. I think that was one of the sneakers in the heritage model collection that I've seen in Gola's international website while browsing.

Thanks to ELRO Retail Corporation (ERC), a leading player in the footwear retail and distribution industry in the country, by bringing the different styles and collections from UK’s hippest lifestyle sneaker – Gola! More photos of the collection and highlights of the event below :)
