Her name is Manika Yujuico-Kwan, and no, she’s not an artista (which is probably why you’re not following her on Instagram—or at least not yet). Last time we checked, this New York-based Filipina works as an account executive for Marchesa. You probably haven’t even heard of her name until today. But if you’re a certified #PreviewGirl who regularly lusts over shoes, then trust us, clicking on that “follow” button should be your top priority after reading this.

We live in the age of Instagram, and that much we can all admit. We even coined the term “shoefie” just so we can document our obsession for fancy footwear and towering steppers that look oh-so double-tap worthy. And as far as this social media jargon is concerned, the local celebrities all head over to the same page— @manikayujuico’s.
Droolworthy shoe posts grabbed from Manika’s Instagram account
From pointy-toed pumps to fringed sandals, from loafers to espadrilles, Manika’s shoe porn collection can make any girl swoon with envy. Be warned, though. One look at those divine pairs of Blahniks and Valentinos and you might find yourself instantly browsing Nordstrom or Net-A-Porter on a quest for your next credit card purchase.
The shoe addiction as we know it has already reached a whole new digital level, and as far as we can tell, Manika is the reigning queen.
See? Even celebrities like Bianca Gonzalez-Intal and Georgina Wilson regularly stalk this Filipina #shoefie queen.
Now, convinced? You know what to do.
