Footwear Shopping in Liliw Laguna


Tsinelas (or slippers) are one of the fashion accessories that never go out of style.  You can find the best quality of slippers (and shoes) in a small Laguna Town of Liliw, the Tsinelas Capital of the Philippines and Footwear Capital of Laguna. 

The footwear industry has been one of Liliw’s major industries for a long time now.  The factories are what they call “backyard factories” because they are just located at the backyard of shoe store owners.  There are only a few, but skilled shoemakers; no big and high-tech shoe machineries and equipments.  The shoes and slippers are hand-made, which what makes the slippers and the shoes more durable.



More than 80 shoe stores lined along the strip of Gat Tayaw Street.  Most of the buyers are traders, retailers, and wholesalers, who sometimes put their own labels to the Liliw products.  For shoe-aholics like me, it is like a paradise where I can feel a glow of happiness! 


Some of the most popular shops are Entrata (the only airconditioned shop where shoe prices are a little bit higher but designs are trendier), Badong Footwear (one of the oldest),  Socialite, Kyrah, Hanz, Jhaz Footwear.  A wide variety of shoes and slippers for kids, ladies and men are available at an incredibly low price...but you still need to bargain to get the "bestest" price :o)


Flat Espadrilles for ladies are as low as P200 

Men's Espadrilles as low as P300


Shoe designs are stylish and trendy...

Prices range from P300 to P500.  Flats, around P200.





Liliw bags for as low as P400...


Chic killer heels available at Hanz Footwear for as low as P600!  How cool is that!

To get to Liliw, the best route would be via Rizal-Laguna road network, for those coming from the Eastern part of Metro Manila.  Another route would be through the South Luzon Expressway then proceed to Liliw via San Pablo City or via Sta. Cruz Laguna.  View location map HERE.

  2. Shops open every day from around 7 am to 7pm. If you want to buy shoes that are 100% locally made go down the street not the top.

    1. Sorry but I'm not so good at directions. What I can share is that you need to take the SLEX going to Sta. Cruz Laguna via Calamba, Los Banos route. Then at Sta. Cruz, there's a road going to Liliw-Nagcarlan to get to Liliw.

  16. Hi. I've read from another blog that there are only 3 real manufacturers of shoes in Liliw, Laguna, and some of the stores are just re sellers who claim that they are the ones who are making the shoes. I just want to ask if this is true? If yes, do you know who these 3 manufacturers are? Thank you and I hope you could give me a feed back on this

    1. Parang yung Badong Footwear is the biggest & one of the oldest, but I don't have any experience buying as a retailer so, I'm sorry I can't give a good recommendation.
