You should know by now that I take this footwear business seriously. I’ve shared stories of me driving up north all the way to Subic to check what’s new, or down South to see what’s out. I’ve even planned my out of country trips around a shoe map as to how my day should turn out. Yesterday was no different. Drove all the way from Quezon City to check out Crocs’ launch of their ABF (Almost Barefoot) Collection at Enchanted Kingdom’s newest attraction, EK BiKi Waterworld.
EK BiKi Waterworld’s basically a water theme park– but with huge inflatable pools, slides, and water toys. It’s a pretty cool place to be at, especially with Summer still lingering late in May. The Park just opened at the beginning of the month and I do regret not bringing any clothes for swimming.
Aside from the newly opened water park, we were delighted with the performance of EK’s in-house dance troupe, an entertaining magician, the finalists of Pilipinas’ Got Talent (which I did a cameo for one of their gimmicks. see pictures below) and a showcase of the S/S collection (photos of the event will be posted on Sole Movement’s Facebook fan page soon).
But what we were really here for was the ABF (Almost BareFoot) collection. Inspired by the foot’s natural form and designed to deepen ergonomic comfort and fit, Crocs’ new collection doesn’t disappoint. I was able to test drive a pair throughout the event and it’s been a while since I’ve really felt comfort with a flipflop.
As you can see with the photo below, I made a quick change from my Janoskis to the ABF Flip in black.
Here’s a shot of the outsole of the ABF Flips– it resembles the foot’s form. The lady’s version (below) has shiny transparent traction pods for improved wearability. Like most Crocs pairs, the ABF Flip is made of a full-molded Croslite material that provides lightweight comfort and easy care (you know how hassle free these Crocs can be). I’ve been wearing the Flip since I hopped on the car and been walking around the house… it’s really comfortable. I do have a couple of Crocs flip flops and these are the best yet! If you’re planning to rock some decent flip flops, these are a must. Check out the rest of the collection below and on the fan page later today.
Traffic on the way wasn’t so bad, the weather cooperated, a fun-filled launch and a cool pair to keep the feet comfy. I say it was a good day.
