The lower one feels, the higher the heel. It’s a motto that has not only governed the outfit choices of fashion girls everywhere, but also developed their emotional well-being. While we love stepping out in our vertiginous stilettos, it can get pretty tiring.
Let's face it. High heels aren’t conducive for dancing in the club or in grassy music festivals. We used to think that nothing could beat the surge of power and the gush of sexy that comes with wearing a pair of high heels. However, ever since the sneaker trend dug its heels into our wardrobes, we’ve come to realize that being able to comfortably move around is a top priority on our list.
Below we’ve rounded up equally stylish alternatives that will give you pleasure minus the pain.
While Martine Cajucom may be a connoisseur of sandals, she knows how to work a pair of white leather oxfords exquisitely. Complement the vintage vibe exuded by your shoes with a bright '70s color palette. We guarantee all eyes will be on you.
2. WHITE CHUCKS
Even Preview’s resident fashion junkie, Daryl Chang, has an affinity for flat footwear. She’s contrasted her stark white chucks with a printed slip dress perfect for summer parties.
P.S. We’re getting major bag envy here.
3. KNEE-HIGH BOOTS
One of the Manila's favorite cool girls, Trasienne Estrada, has done it again. We’re seeing all the trends in this outfit, and they fit together perfectly. She’s used her fitted black boots to lampshade with her silky pyjama shirt dress, and topped it off with a leather choker.
4. GLADIATOR SANDALS
Forget the paintings, Kiana Valenciano’s outfit in itself is a work of art. To exude the ease of summer, strap on those sandals and pair them with a flowy tube top and balance the look with a boxy bottom for a chill night out.
5. CHUNKY SNEAKERS
If you need the extra inches but want the comfort, then we suggest going out in a pair of chunky platform sneakers instead. It’s a win-win situation! Lovi Poe wore hers with a monochromatic ensemble and a bag to match. Now who said you need a dress and heels to look sleek on the dancefloor?
