Mostly personally designed and locally made, Tonic's bags and shoes take pride in celebrating the beauty and excellence of Philippine creativity and workmanship.During our trips abroad, we also take home with us the beautiful finds we encounter along the way, be it materials or finished products.
These are the shoes I hauled at one time...all from a brand named TONIC. I stumbled upon their shop at The Ramp (Trinoma) and instantly fell in love with the design and quality. If it ain't obvious, I got 4 pairs in one go...and they all flew with me in Singapore♥ I do hope they open a shop here soon!
Well my shoes are always bound to get battered especially with my sadistic feet and all but these shoes are too comfy when I tried them on. But still, we must remember, shoes only hurt after we have purchased them right? Well not all but mostly!
With Kim Chupeco's (founder/designer) keen love for shoes and bags, TONIC was born. All her products are personally designed and locally manufactured. I love how she caters to the Filipino market especially in the provinces and she doesn't stop from being updated with the latest fashion trends to keep up with the expectations of her customers. Pinoy pride once again ♥

The other two pairs, as usual if I did not indicate how much that just means I forgot their respective prices, haha. Anyway out of the 4, I have worn two pairs in significant events:

ZYRA , break in done during the night I've partied with apl.de.ap of the Black Eyed Peas at his Hotel Sofitel West Coast Party . It has good solid construction and the heel feels sturdy . Fit is comfortable for such a high heel. I was able to wear them for hours and it gave me no discomfort and did not feel any leg pain either. It also seemed pretty easy to walk in as well, like I did on a carpet and linoleum to name a few.
I truly love the design as oxfords are timeless in style yet they have incorporated a modern touch to it by adding up the lace to ensure a secure fit as well. Its sole delivers a reliable traction when worn.
I recall seeing Gretchen Fullido while watching the news and she was sporting this ruffled shoes and I found out that yeah, you bet it was from TONIC.
Kim, you rawk...your pieces are unique yet not overly done. ♥
Ruffles + Bone = ♥
