I am not familiar with the Outland shoe brand up until I bought my first pair of their sandals. Before I even get to know the Outland brand I first got to know the Birkenstock brand which from what I have read “could potentially last a lifetime if cared for properly”.
I would love to have a pair of Birkenstock but the price tag is just not for me and upon trying a pair of them at a mall I also felt that it didn’t suit my liking because it looks kind of big for my feet and it felt heavy. So I gave up on Birkenstock.
My old pair of sandals which was a Sorrores brand that I bought a year ago gave up on me, I think it got wet once and the footbed started to peel. So I went shoe shopping this month to replace my year old sandals, then I saw these Outland shoes and at first, I thought it was an imported brand because it sounds like one.
I tried on some of their sandals and I end up liking the strap sandals design. I always like strap sandals it feels secure to walk on them. Luckily I bought it during the SM mall sale so I got 20%off. I paid 1599 pesos for this pair original price is 1995 pesos.
It definitely has that Birkenstock vibe but affordable, I like that the sandals is lightweight and the strap uses Velcro instead of a buckle for convenience.
I wanted the color brown strap but they were out of stock on my size so I just picked the blue one. The white once looks nice as well but I am afraid it’ll get dirty real fast!
It gave blisters on my toes the first time I wore it which is normal in every footwear, but after second wear it loosen up a bit and it’s now comfy to wear.
I would love to give an update on the sandals later on and how it will hold on to my feet! Hopefully, this can last for more than a year! *crossed fingers*

Still works just fine, It feels a little loose on my feet after a while but I prefer that way since it’s way more comfortable and doesn’t cause blisters on my feet when using for a long period of time.
The foot sole didn’t thin out but my feet shape molded on the sandals lol and it got darker in color as well which kinda looks dirty lol. For the straps, it still looks and feels sturdy and I don’t think it will fall off any time soon.
