Next time you're in the market for new shoes, there's only one destination to remember: 4th floor of the SM Store in SM Makati.
The newly renovated space boasts of 5,500 square meters of pure unadulterated shoeporn. This vaguely translates into over 25,000 pairs of shoes to choose from by over 300 brands both local and imported.
There's a perfect shoe for every budget, gender and need that's just waiting to be discovered.
We all went a little ga-ga yesterday at the SM Makati Shoe Crazy Shopping Party when SM Shoes and Bags took an afternoon to revisit it's early shoe store roots and show us how much they've grown in a matter of a few years to turn into one of our country's leading companies.
The event started with a quick fashion show which featured the latest footwear from the many brands they carry. It was soon followed by a tour of the new space and finally, a shopping party wherein we were all given a specific budget and allowed to shop for the shoe of our dreams. That, my friends, is one ideal way to spend an afternoon for this sister! ;)
And as you probably guessed, I didn't know where to start! There were really Sooo many brands to choose from.
See for yourself in the photos I took while on tour: (prepare to salivate)
There's mine and nikola's favorite brand: Sugar Kids which always has really, really affordable shoes for girls in funky designs. Perfect for little feet that grow quickly.
And it's alternative for little boys: Tough Kids which always has the cutest boots and loafers.
Of course there's also hundreds of shoes inspired by your children's favorite cartoon characters like Barbie, hello kitty, Disney princess, monster high as well as old dependable brands such as Florsheim and Chicco.
If you're in the market for something more athletic, you can choose from brands like Adidas, Nike, Merriell, Converse, Skechers, Reebok, New Balance, Saucony, Puma, Fila, Accel, And1, Vans, Crocs, Havaianas and many more! Whew, got tired just listing those down! :P
