Here goes my review on my favorite shoe brand..few years back I had a craze for NIKE, ADIDAS, PUMA etc..my cousin bro works on ship so when ever he used to call me I always insisted him to get me shoes of NIKE, ADIDAS, PUMA etc..


He finally agreed to gift me a NIKE boot, and purchased one for me and gifted it to me when his ship ported mumbai..i was all excited and I went around boasting about my new boots which were bought from foreign.. My bro bought the shoes in 75$.. that came to around 3,500 bucks as per INDIA currency..for the starting few weeks I was totally satisfied with the shoes but slowly and steadily they started giving me problems and I was very sad as my bro bought it for 3,500 bucks..it made me repent and I felt that I made a wrong decision by telling my bro to get it from there..and anyways my bro was against me buying big brands especially from foreign..But I was very stubborn that I want it on any case.. Felt as if I just threw my money on some lame brand..just by viewing its ads and the reputation that it previously carried..


I decided that I would buy an INDIAN brand and will use it as long as possible..THERE'S ALWAYS A MYTH THAT PRODUCTS FROM FOREIGN ARE ALWAYS BETTER THEN THOSE PRODUCED IN INDIA..


Just let me clear the doubt of people those who think like that, BRANDS IN INDIA ARE VERY GOOD, ITS JUST THAT WE AREN'T ABLE TO TRUST THEM AND BELIEVE ON BLIND ADVERTISMENT


Why did I purchase this particular pair of shoes?


I opted for woodland as many of my friends using this brand recommended me, due to many factors.. I immediately decided to buy this shoes was due to the advantage of its durability in every season..I paid around 3,300 bucks..it was expensive as per Indian standards but I had no other option but buying these shoes and using them for at least 2-3 years as I was warned by my strict mom.. She had taken my solid case when my NIKE shoes got spoiled, due to keeping it for a very long time dumped..around 2 months


I purchased this shoes from the SAKINAKA outlet..the original outlet of woodland.. I got some coupons free which had many offers as in discount coupons for various brands like kobe-sizzlers, Geleto, kwality walls, baskin and robins etc.. I made good use of the coupons as am a big ice cream fan.. Apart from that I got warranty of 6 months..


ITS BEEN ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW AND I FEEL THAT I MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE..I ENJOY IS SO MUCH SO THAT I HAVE AN ADDICTION TO IT AND WEAR IT 24 HOURS IN OFFICE TOO WHEREAS OTHERS TAKE OFF THEIR SHOES AND SOCKS..


I've developed a SOFT CORNER for this brand in my heart..that's how much I am obsessed with it :-)


What do I like or dislike about this product?


There were many things that I liked about this product..




  1. The durability : This shoe brand is known for its durability..I've almost used this shoes for 2 years and trust me the results are great..still I feel as if my shoes is new and tuff..Even if a woodpecker comes and starts packing the shoes it will go back dejected ..dats how much tuff this shoes is..




Just one experience that I've to do with the shoes is that put it under the road roller and see what happens..certainly it wont be my shoes :-P


This is one of the brand known for its tuff shoes which can undergo any tampering and any season, this was the main reason I bought this shoes..




  1. The Comfort level was great : Till now I have never faced any issues with the comfort level of this shoes..normally ive seen many customer complaining that the comfort level isnt worth for what they paid..and many of my friends have also faced such situation..Ive dedicated this review to them..and will surely make them read this review :-)




There are cushions also present inside to give a sense of comfort to the customer..and it has been claimed that the upcoming products from woodland will have great level of comfort..


One of the best comfort level that ive felt is when I ride my bike with these shoes on..i feel as if am a rider riding sports bike with an ultimate experience..this shoes helps to fill the gap where a normal bike rider wont be able to fill in and keeping him unstable while riding the bike.




  1. Ideally suitable for all moods : This shoes can be worn with any and every mood..It suits any fashion and any occasion..whether be it trekking, wedding, office, bike riding etc..




  2. A true performer : Performing all guns blazing is this shoes since past 2 years..saved me from many infectious needles, sharp stones, prevented me slipping on shiny tiles etc..a true performer.




  3. Good range of shoes : Woodland has a great range of shoes..but the only thing about this range is that the charm is missing, which every youth nowadays looks for..except for around 15-20 range of shoes..the rest dont impress me on the charm..But as time passes by woodland would surely look into making their shoes even more attractive.




  4. The same great feel still runs within : The 2 years deadline by my mom is over and I can buy another shoes..but frankly speaking m not interested..and even if I buy..the brands gonna be WOODLAND




  5. Worth the money : For a middle class person, worth for money is the most important thing..as I truly feel it was worth for the 3.3k I paid..and 2 years down the line also I see myself with the same shoes..touchwood






Few things I dint like about this product:




  1. Bit costly : The range starts from 2.5k onwards..so by INDIAN standards its a bit costlier




  2. Heavier than compared to the rest : These shoes are a bit extra heavy as compared to other brands here..the simple reason I for the strong sole made by woodland..It gets a bit annoying when u do trekking for a long time..and u realise that the shoe is very heavy..ive been through this feel a couple of times.




  3. Regular cleaning and washing needed : The shoes starts stinking a bit if kept for a longer time without washing and cleaning..so either wash the shoes or clean them reguarly.






How does this shoe suit your style?


As I have a very funky dressing style..and keep curling my hair or straightening my hair..and different apparels..one thing that has always suited my style is my woodland shoes..whatever be the style..woodland ideally suits for every occasion and every style, it all together gives a person a different personality one can say


Which alternate products did you consider?


As I told u earlier..ive tried out NIKE, REEBOK, FILA and some more 2-3 not so famous brands..bt my gut feelings always says no1 can stand as woodland does..


INDIAN BRANDS ARE TOO GOOD AND DURABLE AND TRENDY..ITS THE OUTSET FROM WHICH WE LOOK AT THEM..BATA is another example of trust


How has this shoe performed over a period of time?


As I told u..i feel it was the performer of the year for me..many friends came n went in my life..few enemies also..but woodland has always been with me in the ups and downs..


*FEW GUIDELINES:




  1. Buy the shoes from approved original showrooms of woodland or multi-brand showrooms and dont order online as ordering online could cause u to get defected product.




  2. Keep ur shoes dry and clean always..




  3. Do not machine wash it.




  4. Wipe away the dust with dry cloth and if ur not using the shoes for a very long, cover it nicely and keep*






There are about 350 outlets around the world..This brand is picking up very quick n it wont be a wonder to see it top in the next few yrs


The 2 pics that ive uploaded




  1. The one in brown is the one that I purchased for 3.3k




  2. The second one is the cheapest among woodland brands..around  2.1k( previously it was around 2.5k)






All I can say is that WOODLAND IS A MASTERPIECE


KEEP SMILING :-) CHEERS
