‘Balik kampung, oh-oh-oh, balik kampunggg-‘

Hari Raya is literally a day away and boy, are we excited! Nothing beats gathering with family and friends to catch up and reminisce over good food and a great festive ambience. Personally, we look forward to visiting open houses and filling our tummies with rendang, ketupat and cookies. To maximise your open house experience, we’ve compiled the top shoes to wear over Raya – fuss-free footwear that are simple to put on and match, never short on style!


Patterned Court Shoes, RM169.90, Zara
When open house-hopping, the last thing you want to be doing is standing awkwardly at someone’s front door, fumbling to get out of your strappy stilettos. That’s exactly why this simple yet stylish 4-inch heels are a top pick. An easy slip-on court shoe, these heels have just the right amount of height and we adore the pretty paint-splattered pattern. Great for peeking out of a solid coloured skirt, leave tongues wagging in your wake.


Beatnik x Belle Courtshoes, RM495, Chiyo at Bazarro
These shoes are sure to brighten up your Raya outfit … and everyone else’s mood! Super cute, quirky and funky, here’s another pair that’s easy to slip on and off. On top of being great to look at, they’re comfy, boosts you to the perfect height, and if you ever need to dress down in some skinnies, they’ll make your legs look way slim (trust us on this one).


Tassel Metallic Slippers, RM189, Mango
Easy to spot among the mass of shoes piled on your friends’ front doors, these glitzy slipper-loafers are the coolest thing to pair with a casual Raya ensemble. Think a baju kedah with the simplest embellishments on the collar, and a mini songket clutch for duit raya.


Leopard Printed Ballet Flats, RM189, Pedro
House hopping can get pretty exhausting especially if you plan on walking in heels! Opt for a different ball game this time around, with this super chic pair of ballet flats that will have your feet thanking you, for sure. The best part about them is leopard print, great for adding wild spunk to your demure Raya ensemble.
