Muñiz Shoes by Carmina Villaroel: 2 Dozen Trendy Styles

Actress Carmina Villaroel shows finesse in footwear design. By Stephanie Castillo

Actress, TV host, and celebrity mom Carmina Villaroel adds “designer” to her career list! Her brand Muñiz Shoes—a tribute to her maiden name—brings footwear fetishists a global take on local design.

Handcrafted by Filipino cobblers with mostly locally-sourced materials, Muñiz Shoes embodies Carmina’s personal taste in footwear. After a “long-term love affair with shoes,” the talented actress envisioned the kind of steppers that sacrificed neither style nor comfort. The line features sophisticated pumps and “fast fashion” heels, as well as cute sandals and ballet flats for more casual dressing. And get this--each design is personally tested by Carmina to ensure the fasyon factor does not impede functionality. That's what we call customer service!

Muñiz Shoes is also supports an environmental advocacy—upon purchase, each pair is packaged in recycled boxes and eco-friendly shopping bags. Chic, comfy, and socially-conscious—what more could you ask for in a shoe?

Browse through the photos below for 24 pairs of Muñiz Shoes.

    i am fond of shoes coz i have offsize feet sizes 10-12. do you have styles that have sizes of the above, if you have i will buy plenty of your designs.

    It's quite expensive considering you can see that the craftsmanship is flawed.

    i like carmina villaroel so much... thats why i choose to buy her creations...muniz shoes is too expensive but thats not the problem with the shoes its the quality... i have bought barbara and bianca few months ago and i was dissapointed... at first i loved it so much and i was very surprised coz it looked really elegant and lovely... but when i used it i found out "madali syang masira"not like the other brands na mas cheaper pero mas matibay ... hope u can improve ur quality... more power!
