Experience Marikina Sapatos Festival 2018


Marikina, the Shoe Capital of the Philippines, brings you the #ExperienceMarikina Sapatos Festival 2018 showcasing the city's leather products famous for its good quality and craftsmanship. Around 48 shoe manufacturers are participating and selling their products at the bazaar located at the newly-renovated Marikina Freedom Park.

Marikina City Mayor Marcy Teodoro and PFFI Vice President Neil Nepomuceno led the ribbon cutting to officially open the festival last November 12 and will run until January 6, 2019. There are also workshops lined up during the festival while the highlight of the event is the Tour de Takong happening on December 1. 

Ferrina by Checkpoint Shoes
I went shoe shopping during the opening day and a must-visit  is Checkpoint Shoes. Comfort and durability is non-negotiable for me and I'm super lucky to have found a brand meets my standards and yet very affordable. 

Hubby got this pair of shoes six months ago and he loves it. He even wore it at the exclusive-invite only unveiling of The Garden at Okada Manila last Saturday.

We support local and proudly wear Marikina-made shoes.

Lara Erika Shoes
This is my first pair from Lara Erika Shoes and I'm super excited to wear soon!

Aside from shoes, there are also stylish bags that will complete your look and will bring out the fashionista in you. I fell in love with the orange hand bag and I hope it's still there when I visit before the week ends. 

Visit Marikina City now and own a pair of Marikina-made shoes and bags. The bazaar is open Monday to Thursday from 9am to 7pm and Friday to Sunday from 9am to 8pm.
