I thought nothing could come easier to walk in. Then comes FUSHU. I got a hold on my first-ever pair last December when my friend, bag decorator, Kieth Bitor, brought me to the Christmas bazaar at I.T. Park and gifted me a pair as a Christmas present. I’ve heard of expensive slip-ons and espadrilles from Blenn before, but this was just reachable! And how their nude flat soles weakened me made me an official fan. Effortless is ze wurd! Yes, it’s casual alright but the patterns and designs are a bonus!
FUSHU has no signs of slowing down. With almost a year under its belt, it has added a women’s line (finally answering to the demand-wall posts on their Facebook fan page) and more desirable designs: zebra-skin patterns, bright pastel retro floral prints, chic verticals, and interestingly, criss-cross lines eidetic of Narciso Rodriguez’s Spring-Summer 2009 collection (pictured below).

I'll buy my next FUSHU 'til my previous one wears out and I can't walk on them anymore!
