FLATFORM. Silver number by Salvatore Ferrgamo

“Summer shoe styles for the Philippines should be flats or low kitten heels. They should be open-toed and strappy. But foremost, they should be feet friendly,” said my expert fashion guru and life coach mom today.


This sage adviser should know as she hits her 80th summer this year. Having shod the feet of nine kids in canvas sneakers or fancy flip-flops all her life, my mom knows best.


Luxury labels offer colorfast, comfortable yet knockout styles for every target market and client niche. There are lovely-to-look-at and kick-ass-to-wear classic designs with a twist one can use from day to evening.


Flatforms are merely stacked sandals, and the resurgence of kitten heels will help us navigate the season’s humidity in relative comfort.


All sorts of sustainable elements like cotton, cork, resin and wood make the finishes interesting and climate-controlled. Take your pick or two for a style that will make you and your feet happy.
