We already know Marian Rivera is fond of Manolo Blahniks and Valentino steppers. But apparently, even her husband Dingdong Dantes fancies a pair of killer heels. His preference? Four-inch, scarlet red, almond-toed platform pumps—and we have proof!
These men walked tall in high heels from Banawe street to Welcome Rotonda in Quezon City.
Ahead of International Women’s Day on Sunday, the National Youth Commission (NYC) staged an event dubbed “In Her Shoes,” which aimed to show solidarity with women and also promote their rights. Fifteen gents, including NYC Commissioner Dingdong Dantes, walked 400 miles last Friday, March 6, from Gate 2 of Benguet State University to the town hall wearing women’s high-heeled shoes and with heads held high.
While his colleagues preferred slingbacks and wedges (some even wore theirs with socks), Dingdong went all out with a pair of four-inch red stilettos, which conveniently matched the color of his statement shirt. When asked where he got them, he revealed that his wife Marian bought it herself. "The shoes were bought by Marian in Payless since my size was quite difficult to find," he shared. His #OOTD also included Wayfarers and dark denim jeans nicely cuffed to highlight his bare ankles.
On his Instagram account, Dingdong also shared a photo of him wearing heels. “Nagsuot ako ng heels bilang pagbigay pugay sa mga kababaihan sa buong mundo, lalo na sa buhay ko: ang aking nanay, mga kapatid, at lalo na ang aking asawang si Marian. (I wore heels as means to honor all the women in the world, especially my mom, my sisters, and most importantly, my wife Marian.)”
The actor also added that the march was NYC's move to strengthen the implementation of their projects for the social protection of women, particularly in promoting safety in the workplace and ensuring female leadership that goes beyond cultural boundaries and religious norms.
