The place was really grand! Each shopper pays P50 Entrance Fee which I really don't mind. All events I went to have entrance fees at least hehe. It was good enough that they considered having the food stalls at a separate area than mixing them all inside. It's more convenient for us shoppers. Props to that! All of them were just situated outside the main area, at the entrance; and at the far-end. In the middle, it's all about SHOES, SHOES, and SHOES! Woot!

Anyway ... It's not like I've let go of it right away. I kinda ... moved around first before I came back. And there were still loads of other stuff I found around hehehe. So I told myself ... lemme check it out first hohoho~

It took me two (2) turns around the area before deciding what should I really buy. And it was tiring so I decided to take a little rest hehehehe. Good thing the Happy Fanshu milk tea booth was just around the corner. Took a sip and then went back to shopping ... well window shopping at first ...

After several attempts, I got tired walking in my wedges and I was dying for flats. Good thing I found this Footzyrolls area just right in time I was falling! LOL. What really attracted me there was well is their bigger space and the chairs! Aaaahhhh! Whatta relief!
And then I loved their cute packaging! The little boxes and are too cute not to let pass hehe. I've also read about this brand from Camille Co's blog and she posted a few cute pairs so I thought I'd give it a try. So I chose a few pairs and selected one ... the one on the banner tarpaulin hohoho~ And it's the same one that Camille owns ... only that, I chose a different color hehehe. I think I saw Camille having a red one. I picked a more neutral color ...

I will put up a better review for these shoes in my next posts. (^_^)

There were lots of attendees and the place was jampacked! I bet the organizers are pretty happy with the results! It was fun roaming around ...

|Big Space, Not enough chairs ...|
We really were just standing and fitting shoes at our own risk. It wasn't too convenient so I guess - I'm not sure if it was store-dependent or something the organizers could've provided but bottom line, it was a "minus" for shopper delight. :(
One of the brands I also wanted to check out was Gold Dot. I fitted one of their platform heels, which is really unique. Too bad I wasn't able to take a pic anymore because there were lots of people and there were only two (2) chairs beside the store. *sigh* It's nice but because of my chubby feet, the opening didn't fit me well. It was an open-toe high heels in a very pretty design (coz I can't describe it best .. LOL). Too bad my feet aren't designed for them (-_-)

I saw some of my other faves in the middle - Charles & Keith and Aldo and their sister companies / brands. It was only a Saturday; the first day of the event (JUNE 30 to JULY 1) and yet, it looked like everything is sold out already! Gosh! There were no more Aldo Shoes! (T_T)

In terms of the choices, I guess there were more choices for women than for men in the event. I think aside from Happy Feet Sandals and Adidas and a few more athletic brands; I don't recall seeing other stores offering men's shoes. Mostly for women. There was one store that offered good quality men's shoes I think - SHOELUTION.
I checked out the Happy Feet stall and probably purchase good deals like the ones I purchased from the 3rd Megabrands Sale event I also attended. It turned out I had better deals in that event than here. The shoe I dearly love was just priced at P399 from an original P2,100 but it this event now, similar shoes and the bakya-types were more pricey. There were a few designs offered at a "Buy 1 Take 1" Promo but I didn't buy 'em. P2,000 for 2 pairs ... hmmm ... it was way better in the Megabrands sale.
There were soooo many other booths like S&H and yes ... I wanted to buy more stuff but it was overall a tiring event already so I thought I'd go home already. Besides, it was really raining hard non-stop and my area gets flooded easily so I had to go ... anyway, there's always tomorrow right? And this event was a 2-Day event so I considered going back ... Anyway, I won Vern Enciso's Giveaway for this event and I haven't claimed it for Day 1 so I could use it for Day 2 instead! Weeee!
I called it a day! Very bad weather anyway and yes, there was the next day!
There goes my loot!
Unfortunately, due to bad weather again that Sunday ... I wasn't able to come anymore. (T_T) And now I regret it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
I was also dying to have DAS34 heel-less shoes in black patent, peep toe design with ankle strap. It was normally a P5,500 package but I inquired from the shop that time, it was only being sold at P4,000. Whooooaaa!!!! I tried it on and it was very comfortable. I really regret not getting one. (T_T)
Overall, I can say ...
CHAI'S VERDICT: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ (3 Stars!!!)
Hopefully, there's more of it to come soon!
