Liberty Footwear, among the top 5 manufacturers of leather footwear in the world, claims that it produces more than 50,000 pairs of footwear a day
. Judging by that statement, every single one of us, with uncles, aunties and entire families in tow, should be dressing up our feet in Liberty Footwear. But this kind of 'revolution' just ain't possible. Why? Because Liberty Footwear is not for shoe-shoppers on a small budget. At best, it is affordable quality footwear.
This is true especially of Revolutions, the nation-wide chain of outlets owned and managed by the company. In Hyderabad, Revolutions peddles its footwear, ranging from sober to jazzy, for home, work and play, through its modest, albeit well-furnished and lit, outlet at City Center
The collection essentially comprises the best that Liberty Footwear has on offer from its range of Coolers (uni-sex sandals and slip-ons, a lot of it water-proof), Senorita (fashionable women's footwear), Tiptopp (comfortable slip-ons and sandals for women), Force10 (funky, sporty shoes, made using shoe technology), Footfun (for kids), Gliders (casual footwear made using a variety of materials), Fortune (men's formal footwear) etc.
Apart from the aforementioned quality, many of the shoes at Revolutions are quite good-looking; they can certainly give the shoes available at competitor Bata's a run for their style. The knowledgeable sales staff at Revolutions waits on you, er, hand and foot as you browse, and will also teach you how to maintain your buys properly in case you do make a purchase.
Revolutions' "high fashion" footwear comes at a high price, too - a pair of floaters will cost you approximately Rs. 1,099, while Fortune starts at approximately Rs. 2,000. Their best deals do not fall under "high fashion" at all; a pair of slippers by Gliders cost only Rs. 125.
However, as with most problems we face, there is a solution to this one, too. Head to the nearest Shoe Factory
(that would be on the third floor of the same building), which sells a lot of Liberty Footwear, though you should be prepared to compromise on looks. But is the same quality, at discounted rates. That 'revolution' seems more possible now, doesn't it?
