Dupe, a Brazilian slippers brand, was re-launched here in the Philippines last December 2010. It offers Brazilian, high-quality, affordable, and practical slippers for men, women, kids and babies.
The word Dupe (DO Pe), is a Portuguese term which literally means “of the feet”. It connotes a natural extension of the foot. The brand originated in 1969 in Northeast Brazil where the brand’s only factory and corporate office are located. It is the 2nd in rubber sandals sales in Brazil, next to Havaianas. Check out Dupe’s stores located at SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia department stores, Landmark Makati and Landmark TriNoma, Shopwise Festival Mall and Shopwise Araneta Center.
Along with its re-launch, Dupe also has new product features that customers will surely enjoy and benefit from: fish scale pattern on the texture of the sole, heal massager, and Gel HXP technology (H for high comfort, X for expanded fully sealed coating/finishing, P for penta polymer for ultimate durability). Aside from these, Dupe also takes pride in its100% rubber-make from its brand and frame down to its sole. (Click to enlarge photo)
100% Rubber vs PVC/plastic Rubber has many advantages over plastic. Rubber is not slippery even on wet surfaces. It is safer to wear because it has better traction than plastic. Moreover, rubber does not cause the feeling of heat on the feet even when used in long durations. Plastic tends to cause more friction between the strap of the slipper and the skin and thus produces that feeling of uncomfortable warm temperature on the feet. In addition, rashes can result when using plastic slippers because of the said roughness it generates.
