- Summer’s almost done and it’s time to gear up for the monsoon!
The long sultry days and stifling hot nights will soon give way to deliciously cool rains. The thirsty earth will breathe once again and rejoice in the heavenly showers. But, as we poor city-dwellers know, along with the relief and joy comes the nightmare of slushy roads, muddy pavements and rainwater filled potholes. Getting to work, going to the market, or just hanging with friends to play football needs more careful preparation, especially when it comes to a choice of sensible footwear. It is time to put away the smart leather and cool canvas shoes. Expensive leather shoes tend to get damaged from exposure to moisture, while canvas shoes get soaked easily and may lead to foot diseases from prolonged use, not to mention the discomfort of staying with wet shoes for hours! So select footwear made of synthetic materials or those with strong rubber outsoles. Rubber has the added advantage of keeping you from slipping and injuring yourself. Lakhani Shoes has the perfect solution for your monsoon woes with their wide range of colourful, trendy, and comfortable shoes and slippers.
Lakhani has a tremendous range of Hawai slippers, which are meant for all seasons, but will be ideal for monsoon. They are made of rubber and are the first choice for men, women, and kids. They come in a variety of vibrant hues and patterns and will add a ‘splash’ of colour to any outfit. Now you don’t have to worry about your kids jumping into puddles! They are also easy to wash after a muddy foray to the local grocery store.
- PU Series
The extensive PU collection from Lakhani offers all the style and comfort of leather with none of the associated worries of damaging them in the rains.
