You might have heard or seen Bristol shoes while shopping at department stores. My earliest memory of Bristol was shopping for school shoes. It is also where my dad bought his shoes for work.
Originated in Marikina, Bristol goes way back to 1984 and prides itself in using the finest materials that are locally sourced. Since the beginning, the company has been known for hand-made products that boast of quality Filipino design, products, and labor. Though available in most department stores, we have visited Bristol’s flagship store at Market! Market! to check out their new products.
This pair right here is actually my personal favorite. It is perfect for casual or formal wear. The design is very hip and can transform any boring outfit.
Bristol use really good materials for their products and you can see clearly here the impeccable details that are put in.
Man heels are back in trend, and this pair in particular has the right oomph. But if you are looking for something dressier or something you can use for formal occasions, Bristol has a variety of black leather shoes that will suite your style.
This is one of the classic designs they have and is perfect for semi-formal to formal occasions.
This is actually a must-have in any guy’s closet. Though leather shoes can be quite expensive, it is a really good investment especially if the shoes are of good quality that can withstand Manila’s crazy weather.
But if you are a ‘boy next door type’ and would like to be in walking shoes, this pair is perfect for you. This classic design in brown leather is perfect to match with pants or even shorts.
Marikina is known to make the best quality shoes, and Bristol is definitely a brand that will never let you down. Shoes can be a bit expensive, but with really good quality, you are sure to get a run for your money.
So the next time you need shoes, don’t forget to check out Bristol at your favorite department store or at Market! Market!
