Slippers & Loafers have finally launched!
We are a diverse team of individuals, who have a passion for footwear and with a desire and vision to offer comfort, style and choice to our customers.
Indeed, we are truly excited to bring you our first edition of our blog, and we hope you enjoy this read. As a company, we aspire to listen and have an open mind, for this very reason, we have decided to ask our readers to participate and offer their views.
One may argue that “high-end” brands will ensure superior quality in order to uphold their reputation. Typically, the first impression that you have of someone is the way they look, which usually involves checking out their outfit from head to bottom. Some say that they can decide on one’s character/personality based on the shoes they wear – well, I guess this is the world we live in!
“High-end” brands are designed to appeal to customers, and almost offers the buyer status, and also some level of belonging, particularly when you sport another person wearing the same style or brand.
In our humble opinion, there is no point investing in something you wont wear, therefore – if you like the high end item then make it yours!
On the flip side of the debate, “resurgent brands” carries almost the same amount of style, quality (depending on the brand ofcourse) and choice due to their desire to create their tribe and following. This coupled with some level of saving’s over the high end brands, customers in favor of the resurgent brands see’s themselves as even more secure and confident since they don’t strive to fit in.
We at Slippers & Loafers profoundly believe every purchase is unique, and that customers should consider key attributes such as comfort, style and above all the buying experience. Irrespective of which side you belong to the debate, we have something that will appeal to you, particularly with the partnerships we have planned for 2018.
Our hope is that you enjoyed this read; we’d like to finish off with the question below;
If one walks into their favourite store and was presented with 2 options, resurgent loafers brand £250 and a popular high-end brand at £450. What would your decision be based on?
