We all want to feel comfortable in steamy Singapore, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice style in our wardrobes. Here’s some versatile casual wear for women, including casual shoes for any occasion!
Style and comfort combo – casual shoes
Fly Flot is on a mission to combine customer well-being with sustainable development. For instance, the company’s Isorella production facility is powered by solar energy, and its packaging is made of recycled paper and cardboard.
Made in Italy, the latest Fly Flot casual shoes line is characterised by the “wrapping” anatomy of the non-slip sole which, combined with an anti-shock insole, ensures comfort at every step. The “airflot” lining, thanks to its breathability and absorbency, keeps the foot cool and dry even on the warmest days, a huge plus in the balmy Singapore weather!
Finally, the wide range of colour combinations and materials used for the uppers lend a distinctive style to each model, leaving you spoilt for choice. They’re also easy to pair with a summer dress or loose-fit pants. If you’re looking for both style and comfort, this may just be the casual shoes for you.
Fly Flot casual shoes are available at Wheelock Place, OG People’s Park, OG Albert Complex, Lazada and flyflot.com.sg.
