Rambbo Slippers

Many of us probably still remember the so-called "Rambbo" slippers that became popular during the '80s. Yes, the spelling is "R-A-M-B-B-O," although the typeface has an uncanny resemblance with the typeface of the title cards in Sylvester Stallone's Rambo action film series.

As Many Filipinos are known for spoofing foreign popular culture influences, the slippers might have been inspired by the popularity of the film series. The word "RAMBBO" is embossed on the straps. The thick rubber soles make the slippers suitable for knocking down empty tin cans when playing the game tumbang preso.


A few weeks ago, I was at the market, on the lookout for a new pair of slippers. Nostalgic serendipity prevailed upon me upon seeing pairs of Rambbo slipper being sold at a footwear stall. At a cost of 100 pesos a pair, I can say that the purchase is not just a steal, but also a "sly."

On the off chance that you truly need to purchase another shoe brand, you need to get more data about the organization behind the item. Take a gander at their traits and how expertly they are working. Go above and beyond and get in touch with them through online media pages or on telephone. New brands ought to rush to answer inquiries from possibilities.Stiletto Sandals
