THE APOLLO HAS LANDED

February 25th's EDSA Revolution anniversary has taught me two things. First is to never agree to a meeting in the Ortigas area. And second, if the meeting's too important to cancel, always wear socks with your loafers (shoes, in general).

I learned the latter the painful way no thanks to several blisters which I inflicted on my feet from a long-distance of walking.

My driver took the day off and I was left with no choice but to commute, which I don't mind. When the first taxi I hailed declined to take me to Ortigas, albeit politely, that's when I remembered from the news I watched the night before that a part of the EDSA area will be closed for traffic in commemoration of the EDSA Revolution. The cab driver suggested taking the train which, having no other choice, I did. My meeting was at The Podium. I walked from the Ortigas MRT station going there. I'm sure you already know the rest of the story.

If your day requires a lot of walking, then do yourself a favor by wearing something as light and comfortable as the Native Apollo shoes. Your feet will thank you for it.

Banking on the concept of a moccasin, the most classic footwear silhouette known to mankind, Native created another future classic. With simplicity and "keep it lite" as guiding principles, Mark Gainor, Native's Creative Director, ensured that the focus will only be on the essentials. The result is a totally familiar footwear made fresh and new by injecting Native's quintessential futuristic touch.
