Presyo Merkado: Slipper brands Cebuanos grew up with
CEBU CITY, Philippines — Before the pricey slippers from Brazil landed on Philippine shores, there were go-to brands that the common Cebuano purchased for their regular day’s needs.
The brands Spartan and Walker were some of them.
Sari-sari stores in the barangays also sold them for affordable prices.
They were known to be durable and dependable as they were worn on various occasions: when playing tumba lata, patintero, tagu-taguan, when a fisherfolk goes to sea, when a farmer tends to his crops.
At the Punta Princesa Public Market, these slippers are sold for P60 a pair (Walker) or P65 a pair (Spartan).
