A couple of weeks ago I visited Ferretti Shoes in Glorietta 5. I have passed by the store many times before, but I've never entered because the name "Ferretti" already sounds expensive. I also got the impression that their shoes are for mature women who work in the office - totally not my style since I prefer trendier footwear!
Boy was I wrong. Ferretti had shoes for different styles - for the yuppie who needs versatile and comfortable office shoes for commuting, for the older woman who needs something for a semi formal to formal party, for the ultra-casual urbanite, for the trend-setter who likes edgy shoes - there's something for these people in Ferretti. The brand has teetering heels, sophisticated flats, wedges, and even those canvas espadrilles we see everywhere now. It also has handmade bags and clutches.
Best part? The shoes are not expensive at all! The most expensive pair I saw in the store cost only P1,500. Flats and wedges range from P800 to P1,000. That's pretty good considering the fact that the shoes look sturdy and feel really comfy.
Ms. Cecille, the super nice owner of Ferretti, let me pick three shoes to take home, and these are what I got! I got the black flats (P800) for errand days, the beige heels (P1,500) for fasyon events, and the wedges (P1,250) for bohemian/floral looks. I've been using the flats and wedges for some days now and I love them! They're utterly comfortable and I never had to break them in. The straps and materials used are soft (no chaffing) while the shoes themselves are really light.

I love the earthy color combination; perfect for floral maxi dresses and cuffed jeans. The platform itself is made of rubber so that they won't be hard and heavy on the feet.

This beige heels with snakeskin accent is my favorite out of the bunch! Beige is such a stodgy color, but mixed with snakeskin it becomes mysterious and seductive. I haven't worn these shoes yet, but I plan to put them on tonight! It's the opening night of the Philippine Fashion Week S/S 2011, and of course I need to look my best. I wonder what to wear them with!
And that's it. Do visit Ferretti shoes one time. You'll be surprised!
