I have a similar post about shoes here but read below for my LP entry:
Bakya used to be THE most fashionable footwear to wear.
One can hear the sound of an approaching bakya-wearing person just by the mere sound of its heels click-clacking on the wooden floor, stones street or cobbled road.
I remember having one as a child, of course i was not as comfortable as those lightweight bakya imitation pair made up rubber that I had.
Come to think of it, the bakya showcases not just our unique culture but the inherent creativeness and craftmanship of the Filipino. Who would have thought details would be seen on these pairs?
Yan ang Pinoy! If only Pinoys channel these good traits to good use, then I am positive our country would benefit from it.
