Renegade Folk was launched in 2007 by a team of young Filipinos eager to infuse the market with stylish, comfortable footwear. With presence online and in seasonal bazaars, Renegade Folk began to grow its following and has now become one of the most-followed local fashion brands on and offline. With new styles on offer every month and collections that are updated every season, RF has continued to innovate and grow along with its audience. Renegade Folk leans heavily on the talent, creativity and skill of the local artisans of Marikina—one of the city’s most popular destinations for shoe making. The brand aims to infuse business into the industry, and breathe new life into an old trade. By working with Marikina sapateros, RF helps keep these artisans up to date with technology and design and at par with other shoe brands in and out of the country.
