In the past decade or so, Liliw has emerged as a cheap source of footwear. From a house-based industry, there is now a row of footwear stores at the town proper.
What to buy: Footwear! From house slippers to slip ons, flat shoes, heeled shoes, sneakers, name it and most likely, the stores have it.
What to pay: House slippers can be bought for 3 pairs for US$2.00, while slip ons are sold at US$3.00. Office or more formal shoes are at US$6.00 a pair.
Although many houses in Liliw have footwear stores in their front or ground floor, there is a row of footwear stalls in the street (sorry I forgot the name) just beside the church. There is a wide selection of footwear sold at very low prices compared to department stores.
What to buy: House & walking slippers, wdeges, mules, sandals, shoes & bags
What to pay: P100 to P250 per footwear, depending on style and material
Stores in Liliw are a dime a dozen. And after the 10th store, it can get frustrating looking for that unique pair that calls your name. So I rely on my favorites stores for that. Jeff-c is one of them.
Entrada has the best store interior in all of Liliw. It's walls are white, it has big mirrors and the sales ladies are helpful. Their shelves are stocked with the best collection of shoes, IMHO. Their prices are a bit more expensive than the rest, but they're still a lot cheaper than prices in the local retail shops in Manila.
They have a/c-ing, too, so when the sun gets too hot, you may want to stop by this store if only to browse.
What to buy: Entrada mostly sells colorful slides. They have an exclusive collection of some shoes. So if you're looking for shoes that you can't find anywhere else in Liliw, you should come here.
What to pay: Their slippers and slides are priced from Php199 (about US$4) to Php300 (about US$6).
