This Father’s Day, what gift would fit the head of your family? It must be something that could earn the trust of motivational speaker Francis Kong, actors and models Daniel Matsunaga and TJ Trinidad, Alliance Francaise Cebu director Louis Thevenin, and Consul of France Michel Lhuillier. Certainly Sledgers leather products, which boast of French style and comfort perfect for the successful, discriminating and cosmopolitan male, fit the bill.
The world-renowned company, founded by John Sledgers with Noel Enterprises in 1921 in Vitre, France, makes cow-leather shoes using imported raw materials for distinctive flex-and-move, resulting in ultralight footwear. To ensure elegance and wearability, Sledgers shoes are wider than ordinary ones and have special and extra cushions on the insole. The latter is also removable to prevent humidity that breeds germs and unpleasant odors.
Like the universality of fatherhood, Sledgers has factories in Asia and France and its leather goods—including wallets, belts, passport holders and money clips—are available in 12 countries around the globe.
In the Philippines, Sledgers products are available in SM Malls, Ayala Center Cebu and Trinoma. They are suited to top managers, retirees, and young professional men.
To enhance each dad’s individuality, Sledgers leather footwear comes in Classic (classic silhouette, round/square toed), priced from P4,990-P5,990; Elite (narrow-ended, wood/rubber outsole, soft-step), priced at P6,990; Casual (boat shoes, driving moccasins, slip-ons, mules, half-shoes) priced from P3,990-P5,990; and its Premium French Line, priced from P11,990-P14,990 and available only in Sledgers FSS and Rustan’s department stores.
Even shopping at Sledgers makes every day Father’s Day! To pamper its overworked clientele, Sledgers stores have a coffee lounge setup and offers free coffee, free cookies, free belt cutting and shoe cleaning, plus gifts with purchases: a shoehorn, an eco-friendly cup and socks.
No doubt about it, Sledgers is for the man who is moving up!
