From stylish mules and heels to colourful sandals and moccasins, here are our top picks of the best local shoe brands that you can shop online.
It’s almost the holiday season, so do you know what that means? It’s time to reward yourself for surviving the year! Whether you’re indeed looking for a perfect pair of shoes or gifting yourself with a year-end present, here are our top picks of local shoe brands in Jakarta.
Who says shoes have to be plain and boring? Statement footwear is the thing these days, and Chiel certainly knows it best. Featuring pompoms to fringe made of fur and leather, turn heads with shoes adorned with bold and fun embellishments. Their mules are certainly our favourite; just scroll through their Instagram page and you’ll see how they really stand out! Did we mention that they only have flats? So, if you’re not a fan of high heels, you can say yay to extra comfort!

They say details are everything, and we just can’t agree more! If you’re anything like us, you’ll love Pvra’s sandals for their handcrafted 3D beadwork and use of genuine leather. Pastel and neutral colours play an important role in their footwear, making it a perfect match for your daily feminine wear. Did we mention that they occasionally have a kids collection too? The latest one is done in collaboration with blogger Alodita, and that means you can have a mother-daughter twinning time with your little ones!

Looking for a comfortable pair of shoes to pack for your next holiday? Look no further than Scilla, whose moccasins are perfectly made for walking. We believe that you should never sacrifice comfort over style, and their shoes are exactly the answer. Made of genuine leather, they are embellished with rubber pebble sole and shoelaces that you can customise yourself. Not only are Scilla’s footwear suitable for travelling, their moccasins are also the right choice for a professional look in the office or simply a casual day out with your friends.

Up / I Wear Up
If there’s a word (or two, actually) we can use to describe their shoes, that would be cheerful and colourful. Their website greets visitors with the slogan “Welcome to our happy place,” which is completely fitting because who doesn’t get all excited to see such a colourful collection of shoes and accessories? It is not really surprising though, because UP is the brainchild of blogger Diana Rikasari, who is well known for her bold choice of colours and quirky style. Colourful patterns, pompoms and tassels are their main signature styles, and once we saw those rainbow-coloured shoes, we just can’t get enough of them! The good news is that you are also helping children in need to get an education by buying their products, as they have an initiative called the LEVEL UP! Scholarship Program.

Local footwear brand Ittaherl shoes sell out fast! Yes, it’s pretty challenging to get your hands on their shoes – shoppers have to join their special web and hunting session, that they call their web hunt, where you can only shop their products on the website at a certain period of time which is usually announced on their Instagram. Does that make you even more curious? Well, it does for us! Their simple designs are tylically embellished by lace and ribbons, and are quite affordable, and that’s exactly what people love most about Ittaherl. More stylish designs are also available at its sister company, the Ittaherl Curated, which collaborates with famous influencers like Kiki Siantar and The Widiras.

Jessica Priscilla Shoes
We love to mark everything as ours (just in case someone wants to steal them, right?) and initials are one great yet sophisticated way to personalise our things. That’s why we love local labelJessica Priscilla Shoes. The brand started off by selling loafers and slip-ons with initial letters and colours that you can customise yourself, and has now branched out to selling mules, flats, and heels. Our favourite? The tassel and fringe mules collection! Psstt, they had a limited Christmas edition last year, featuring a pair of green mules with red tassels! So let’s cross our fingers and hope they’ll have it again this Christmas – just so we can have an excuse to buy ourselves a pretty Christmas gift!
