"Oli13 is what we do and how we do it, accessible, optimistic and lively. Since our very first shoe, the EE1929, named after my grandfather, we have been working our own lasts and molds to achieve a harmonious and stylized silhouette with a very comfortable fit. Color has also been present from the outset with combinations of brightly-colored soles and more discreet uppers to create a cool but fuss-free style." - Juan Luis Dominguez, co-founder of Oli13

The shoes are manufactured in Spain, keeping expert rafting and tradition alive but also looking to the future. The double height and the subtle curve of their soles, unique features of their shoes, represent this movement and forward vision. Oli13 uses environmentally-friendly materials: natural rubber, made in green fabrics. 

 

Oli13 is exclusively available in Rustan’s Makati, Rustan’s Shangri-La, Rustan’s Gateway Mall, Rustan’s Alabang Town Center and Rustan’s Cebu.
