Enough about that, on to the flip-flops themselves. This year, banana peel came out with new designs that we as consumers will be able to use in everyday life. If you think about it, when do you wear them? I wear them around the house or at the beach. Besides that, nowhere else really. And that’s the reason why banana peel came up with the idea of Burst. We were told that they aimed to burst out of their bubble. And this bubble is the limit of what flip-flops are used for. They did this by having quirky designs and vibrant color schemes- just look at them!

This year, they got John Lloyd Cruz to be Banana Peel’s very own brand ambassador. We were told they chose him because he is described as the boy next door. And from the looks of it, everyone loves him! He is very approachable indeed. By the way, to Tito Bokie, look I met your twin! 🙂
During the Question and Answer section, I finally had the courage to raise my hand up. I asked him, “How does the idea of burst relate to your personality?” He replied that he sees himself as spontaneous and this year try bursting out of his personality. All other questions were answered and we learned the concept behind this theme. I see that John Lloyd was hands on with these new products having a line of his own and he as a consumer was satisfied himself.
I would like to congratulate Banana Peel for growing massively since 2002 where some of their branches are distributed in 9 different countries including the USA, Australia, the Maldives, Taiwan and few others. Knowing that they are both fashion and environmentally conscious really makes them everybody’s favorite flip-flops. I’ve only had one pair of Banana Peel flip-flops and I must say they are the most comfortable ones I’ve had so far. After receiving another pair from the event, I’m excited to try wearing them on a normal day.
Thank you again to Mrs. Nikki Ng for inviting me, and thanks to my auntie Ysabela Narvasa for accompanying me to this event. If I’m invited to another one, I better make sure to take better quality photos! Grab a pair of banana peel flip-flops, I’m telling you they are so soothing to your feet :).
