Sole Style

Standing out. That is one goal of most partyphiles. Admittedly, it is quite easy to get lost in a sea of like-minded people who happen to talk, think, and spend alike; making it even more novel to stick out like a sore thumb. However, it seems like the temptress that is ‘personal style’ is getting back in the forefront as more and more local partyphiles indulge in vintage, DIY, or customized pieces. Thus, I present to you another option for some late-night fashion: Custom-made shoes.

Here’s the culprit: Gab Delos Santos, the maven behind Fabulosa Finds on Facebook. Radio DJ on 105.9 Mix FM by evening, artiste extraordinaire by dawn.

The product: customizable shoes that are perfect to wear for partying and are seemingly one of the hottest modes of self expression these days.

Imagine owning a pair of shoes that nobody else has. Imagine it being an extension of your own style. Imagine wearing a pair that somehow acts as a badge of honour for anything you stand for. Imagine having the pair of shoes you’ve always wanted. Seriously, it doesn’t have to be that deep. The concept is simple. You give Gab your sneakers, espadrilles, or even high heels; give her your design concept, and she paints them for you for a measly price that ranges between four hundred moolahs to six hundred ba-dong-dongs. Is it worth the price? Of course.

For less than a thousand, you get to show off your individuality and allow your feet to do all the talking. And in the Partyphile World where dance floor happenings matter as much as what you actually arrive on the dace floor wearing; you should seriously put more consideration into your shoes.

So pick out a design, any design, and add Fabulosa Finds on Facebook.
