The Only Sandals You Need During Your Long Holy Week Break

It’s time to start planning your trip and what you’ll be packing as the Holy Week break is quickly approaching. And if there’s one item that every summer outfit must have, it’s a pair of cozy sandals! We’ve got you covered with our top selections for the best summer sandals that will carry you from day to night in style, whether you’re planning on hitting the beach or exploring a new city.

The Pool Slide

Plan to spend the entire day relaxing by the pool? Bring a reliable pair of slides with you! Despite their simplicity and comfort, they’re a certain way to give your feet a pop of color and playfulness. Sperry’s Ombre Float Slide and Keds’ Bliss II Cocktail Slides nearly scream “Poolside Happy Hour” at first glance.

The Utilitarian

If your trip involves a lot of walking and trekking around the locales you’ll be visiting, you need a pair that is as comfortable as is it secure on feet. Merrell’s Huntington and Bravada Backstrap sandals ride on the resurgence of the “90s normcore” trend, backing it up with added cushioning for shock absorption and enhanced traction for all your outdoor activities.

The Water Shoe

Water shoes are a must-have if you need a pair that can do it all, especially if getting wet is an inevitability. Merrell’s Hydro Mocs and Sperry’s Float Fish Core, both sharing a common EVA foam DNA, are getting their time in the sun nowadays (no pun intended) especially if you want something functional yet trendy while on the beach.

The “Porma” Sandal

While on vacation, are you hoping to have the perfect OOTD to share? To go with all your resort-ready outfits, make sure you have a sleek and fashionable pair on hand. For more height, we suggest Keds’ Trio Jute Platform Sandal and Sperry’s Plushwave Dock Thongs for all your photo ops. They also look fantastic both throughout the day and at night, which helps!


During International Women’s Month, Merrell honors #PrettyStrong Ladies

Merrell, a pioneer in the outdoor lifestyle, thinks that getting outside and enjoying nature is the greatest way to take care of yourself. Many research supported by various studies that demonstrate how going outside can aid in stress reduction, mental health improvement, and creativity enhancement support this. Merrell welcomed women from various backgrounds to participate in an immersive experience in the lush forests of Tanay, Rizal to interact with one another and develop understanding of the value of taking time out to reconnect with nature in honor of International Women’s Month.

The program began with a peaceful outdoor yoga and meditation practice led by trained yoga instructor Anna Manalastas. The event culminated with presentations by travel content makers Charlene Ajose and Natalie Tarin after a brief stroll across the Tanay mountainside.

Merrell’s Bravada Collection

At the heart of the event is the Bravada collection, Merrell’s flagship women’s line which is especially made for adventure-seeking ladies in mind. The latest addition, the Bravada 2 Wrap, features a uniquely feminine silhouette but is equipped with a Merrell mountain-grade Quantum Grip™ rubber outsole and molded nylon arch shank – making it a force to be reckoned with outdoors.

The collection’s most popular sandals, the Bravada Backstrap and Cord Wrap, are now available in chic new colorways, Moon and Falcon, giving girls-on-the-go more alternatives.
