Frugal Find: Rubi Shoes, 3 for P1,200

I got introduced to Rubi Shoes through Cotton On. They carry Rubi shoes in their stores and after buying two pairs (camel wedges and white sandals) in 2013 –which are both still alive today –I made it a point to check out Cotton On occasionally for new shoe designs. (My fave branches are Cotton On Rob Magnolia and Rob Manila.)

When I found out Rubi Shoes has stand-alone stores in Rob Magnolia and Alabang Town Center (ATC), I’d visit them whenever I’d make a trip to those malls.

The nice thing about Cotton On Group and Suyen Corporation’s Rubi Shoes is that they have a wide, trendy, and cool range of shoes to satisfy everyone’s shoe cravings. They have a great selection of flats (which I love!), pumps, espadrilles, wedges, and flip-flops, among others. They even sell bags, sunnies, earrings, and more accessories.

My recent Rubi Shoes purchase is composed of these three pairs of flats which cost me a total of P1,200:




For P400 a pair, I think they’re quite cheap. Buying just a pair will set you back P799. Not a good deal so the best thing to do is to buy three pairs talaga. Actually, I used to buy them at 2 for P1,200 so when I saw the new promo, I didn’t hesitate to avail of it.

As of today, I have a total of eight pairs of Rubi shoes and I use them alternately for work and for going out. See the black flats above? I also have it in silver, white, and red. Nakakatuwa kasi nagmumukhang maliit at maganda ang mga paa ko pag suot ko sila! Iwas nga lang na matapilok lagi kasi mauupod yung pointy part nya eventually. Haha.

Now, are they durable and comfy to wear? Yes, they are! Based on my experience, the flats have thin soles but they don’t break easily. I usually wear my flats all day (they are very light!) and my feet don’t hurt at all. And since I try to use them alternately along with my other shoes, the chance of them breaking or getting worn out is lesser.

Note: Rubi Shoes also has shoes sold at lower (P200 for plain and strappy sandals) and higher prices (2 for P2,000). In this post, I’m only talking about their 3 for P1,200 shoes which are mainly composed of flats, sandals, and canvas shoes/espadrilles.

Do you also have Rubi shoes? How do you find them? 🙂

May you choose happiness always,

  1. I first heard of Rubi Shoes from my younger brother. And both of you have the same conclusions about the quality of their shoes. His girlfriend owns a few pairs of Rubi Shoes, too, so he convinced me to try it out. He said that it would be perfect for the preggy me. Haha! BTW, there’s also a Rubi branch in Rob Manila 🙂

    1. Oh, may Rubi shoes pala sa Rob Manila? Ang saya! Mas malapit. Hehe. Yes, sis, you should get some flats from there, ang gaan at ang lambot sa paa. Noong una, duda ako na baka isang suot lang, sira. Haha. Pero okay naman, hindi naman bumigay, matibay naman pala! 🙂

      1. At sa’yo ko lang nalaman na Rubi pala ‘yung sa Cotton On. ‘Yung Rubi sa Rob Manila, katabi siya ng newly-opened Cotton On sa may ground level. 🙂

  2. Great find!

    Sometimes buying inexpensive shoes leads me to spending more dahil hindi maganda quality, like those beige and black flats I bought from Zalora
    They are so uncomfortable. Iniisip ko kung papalitan ko ba sila even when I just bought them. I only keep two pairs of flats lang kasi, one beige and one black.

    1. Hmm…what I noticed about Zalora shoes (the shoes under the brand Zalora) is that they’re durable but heavy and not comfy to wear. It must be the materials they used. Sis, try mo ang Rubi shoes bukod sa okay ang flats nila, ang current pa ng mga designs nila madami pagpipilian. 🙂

    1. I only wear heels when I feel like dressing up (which is seldom). Haha. Flats are heaven-sent for me. 🙂

    1. Awww, haha. Last year during my shopping fast, umiwas ako sa mga shoe stores dahil shoes ang isa sa weaknesses ko. 🙂

  3. Gondo!!!! Love ko yung black. Mas maganda nga siguro yun in red no!! Tapos yung espadrille din type ko, gossshhH!! next time edel size 8 ako ha? hahahahaha! Kidding

    1. Yes, Jen, maganda ang red, nakakaputi pa ng paa. Hahaha, magkasize pa tayo pero dyan sa Rubi shoes, size 7 ako. Sure, tapos ibabato ko na lang sa iyo sa Las Piñas from Bacoor. Hehe. 🙂

  4. I don’t own a pair yet. Haven’t tried anything from Cotton On actually. Pero mukhang mapapa-visit ako soon. Haha! Type ko yung black and brown flats mo. Simple yet chic! Great and wise find indeed!

    1. Pareho tayo, sis. Hindi talaga ako comfy pag high heels, kaya paminsan minsan lang yun or pag may special occasions. 🙂

  5. I have been an avid collector of this brand too nung nasa Dubai kami kasi comfortable suotin (I am a fan of their flats and sandals).

    Unfortunately for me now, ewan ko kung dahil sa humity, nagkaron ng infection ung paa ko and the doctor advised na kelangan plastic-type shoes / sandals lang pwede kong suotin 🙁

    1. So they have it in Dubai, too? Wow. Sayang sis, sana umokey na ulit ang paa mo para makapagsuot ka na ng normal shoes. 🙂

  6. Hi! The 3 for 1200 promo is available in what particular branch? 🙂 what I usually see kasi is 2 for 1200 lang. Hoping to buy 3 pairs as well! Hehe
