Marquina Shoemaker: Custom-Made Leather Shoes
It is always a Cinderella moment for me whenever I fit in a pair of shoe. It is not that I am waiting for a man to sweep me off my feet or take me to the castle; but I have a big shoe size and finding a pair that fits is like embracing the happily-ever after.
When international brands with big shoe sizes started to open stores in Manila, it is a fairy tale story come true to me. But Fairy God Mothers (or Fairy GodFathers I must say) live in real life through 3 gentlemen behind Marquina Shoemaker.
is a proudly Filipino brand that offers handcrafted leather shoes in classic and stylish designs. The Marquina Shoemaker
‘s leather materials are sourced from Bulacan and the pairs are crafted by artisans who honed their shoe-making skills in the Shoe Capital of the Philippines, Marikina.
I got to visit the Marquina Shoemaker
store in Guijo, Makati and got to try some timeless pairs. I fell in love. The designs are classic and elegant while prices are comparable to other leather shoe stores. You guys have to visit.

Like a coffee shop, eh?
