Reflexology Slippers at the Legaspi Sunday Market




Mike, a Japanese, has been in the Philippines since the 1990s. He personally weaves waraji slippers using the indigenous abaca material. The slippers are woven in a way that the lumps press the crucial reflexology points once the slippers are worn. In this way, organs like the kidney, lungs, heart, etc. get a "massage" while the wearer is walking.

The hubby and I got a pair each for PHP550 and PHP500 respectively. I figured it is cheaper than Havaianas and my very dependable Crocs. I get to strengthen vital organs while walking and support the abaca industry at the same time. Moreover, the slippers are hand made by Mike, who produces three pairs a day.

Perfect for malling!




Prices: PHP500 for smaller sizes; PHP550 for bigger sizes
Location: Legaspi Sunday Market, Makati City
(Herrera to Rada Streets corner Legaspi Street, Legaspi, Makati City)
Store hours: 7 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon
