One of our teachers introduced to us a brand of sandals that is made in Vietnam. She said that they are too expensive for most Vietnamese people, and the company doesn’t export much yet. So until the company can expand their overseas market, the company is struggling and the sandals are hard to find in the local market.
We saw a store yesterday that sells the sandals, so my wife and I visited. They have men’s and women’s sandals. They are comfortable and seem well made. We each bought a pair. For an American consumer, $30 for two pair isn’t expensive at all. I hope the company can several business model to survive. Everyone needs a good pair of Biti’s!
