(SPOT.ph) If you’ve been Keeping Up With the Robredos, you’ve probably seen their now-infamous matching shoes (well, matching except for Tricia Robredo as a hindi favorite…kidding!). Turns out, the no-frills, foot-hugging pair of flats comes from American brand Everlane and the flats are called The Day Glove—no explanation needed. It’s one of the brand’s best-selling products and it’s easy to see why: They look classic, seem very comfortable, and are ultra-versatile—you can wear them with virtually any outfit.

While you can order directly from Everlane’s website, a pair would cost you P6,210 sans shipping fee. So, you’re probably better off searching for a good dupe locally, wouldn't you agree? Well, since we like to spoil you, we did all the legwork and searched high and low for great alternatives to the Everlane pair, from classic ballet flats to casual flat mules. Best part? They’re all from homegrown brands, so by purchasing a pair, you’re amping up your wardrobe with a staple piece and supporting local.
