Mario D’Boro shoes – cheap but elegant

About a week ago, I finally broke one of my office leather shoes – thanks to Typhoon Egay which really had my shoes sip around 2 gallons of water resulting into a complete disaster!

So finally my shoe was no longer usable so I suddenly had to rush to buy one over the weekend for a replacement. And since I am trying to save-up for a gadget, I was looking for something that will replace my old shoes for the time being. I was basically looking for a leather shoe that is inexpensive but still, stylish and elegant-looking.

I came across Mario D’Boro and I completely found what I was looking for:

I initially thought it would cost more than 2,000 Pesos but surprisingly, it wasn’t even that expensive at all! I was stunned to find that it carries a price tag of only 1,100 Pesos! A price which is perfect to not ruin my budget…

However, since it is my first time to buy a shoe from this brand, the durability is yet to be tested. (Anyone care to comment?) I just hope that this shoe lasts long enough. Though it’s cheap, I really like it!


So if you are also trying to save-up and looking for a cheap but elegant leather shoe, try Mario D’Boro. Their product line is one of the least-pricey you could see around. 😀

I just bought a pair at Landmark yesterday. Very affordable and stylish. I was thinking of buying Rusty Lopez, Jarman or Rockport but my budget was not enough.

Well, I am a user of Mario D’ Boro shoes and you are definitely right when you said that it’s cheap and elegant. I bought mine (ladies shoes white sequins and all) and its so durable- why? mabigat kasi ang paa ko so i tend to easily break my shoes pero eto hindi e. From the looks kasi ng shoes ko e parang fragile siya, pero aba! Ang tagal bago masira. So happy naman ako, I didn’t expect my shoes to last this long (been using it for more than a year everyday). So I definitely recommend this brand. Go! <3

I used one before and it last for almost 1 year and half. I always wear since our office requires corporate attire and it never failed me. Stylish, sheap and durable. It’s worth it!

I could really afford the expensive shoes. Lacoste, Sebago, Rockport, others.

But I discovered MARIO D BORO shoes. STYLISH! CHEAP! DURABLE PA!

Instead of buying a Lacoste for 4 thousand plus I settled for 4
MARIO d BORO shoes.

Hi everyone,

I have been trying to find the contact info of Mario d’ boro shoes but couldn’t find it on the net. Since I am out of the country, I couldn’t just go in one of the stores. Would anyone have their email or phone number? Kindly email me at epearls_ph@yahoo.com if you have their contact info. Thanks!!!!!
