Converse definitely came a long way when it comes to coping up with how fashion have evolved throughout time while maintaining the brand’s signature and style.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Gumsole Hi in herbal 2

The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Gum is the sequel to the classic All Star sneaker. It mixes things up with gum rubber soles instead of a regular rubber. With the same grip and durability as the classic Chuck II rubber, this sneaker also shares the Lunarlon insole, allowing for all-day comfort.

Highlights of the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Gum also include premium canvas upper, gum rubber sidewall and toecap and a padded non-slip tongue.

This is a Chuck that’s been re-designed with your comfort in mind. We like to think that’s a good thing.

Available in low-cut and high-cut, the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Gum comes in three colors– black, herbal and obsidian—for only Php 3,990.


The Chuck Taylor All Star II Lux Leather has an embossed polka dot leather upper —a subtle touch for those who like to pay attention to detail that’s worth a second look. Per usual, this Chuck II sneaker features a Lunarlon insole for cushioning, a padded non-slip tongue but also has a micro-perforated leather lining for that extra touch.

Available in white and black, The Chuck Taylor All Star II Lux Leather sneakers is for only Php 5, 430.

Launching this Fall/Winter 2016, Chuck II Leads Converse Footwear Against the Wet Weather
With Canvas, Leather and Rubber

Converse is taking wet weather head-on this season, combining classic sneaker designs with premium weatherized features, with the debut of the Fall/Holiday 2016 Converse Counter Climate Footwear Collection. The new collections provide the necessary tools to combat the climate shifts while emphasizing essential weather-beating benefits. The innovative sneaker collections feature a bold mix of colors and materials including water repellent canvas, rubber and leather, and waterproof neoprene. Divided into three unique categories:  Shield Canvas, Leather and Rubber– these collections are intended to stand up against the unpredictable inclement weather.

Each sneaker has been treated to help tackle rainy weather while maintaining comfort and style. The Converse Counter Climate Shield Canvas sneakers have been given a DWR (durable water repellant) treatment, standing guard as the first line of defense against the rain.

For the holiday season, both new and time-honored styles endure the harsh elements with the Counter Climate Rubber collection. These rubber sneakers are winter-ready with water resistant material and heat retention.

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas

Designed for the Chuck Taylor lover who can’t give up their Chucks no matter what the weather, the new Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II Shield Canvas sneaker combines the enhanced comfort of a Lunarlon sockliner, non-slip padded tongue and micro-suede lining with materials that can also withstand most climate challenges. Converse has added a water repellent Shield Canvas and a gusseted tongue, as well as removing the medial eyelets to make a durable sneaker that is ready for wet and rainy adventures. The sneakers also feature reflective heel webbing and barrel laces for added visibility in low light environments.

Gibi Shoes Fun Day

Founded in 1984, Gibi shoes have been providing Filipinos with comfortable and affordable shoes for more than 20 years now. While Gibi is known for its wallet-friendly and durable school shoes, I on the other hand have always looked at Gibi as among my most favorite places to go to when it comes to my fashion needs. I find their designs elegant and trendy.

Being a fan of Gibi Shoes I was so thrilled to have been given the opportunity to meet two of their endorsers few days back and get to know why they love Gibi and chose to endorse it. Jasmine Curtis-Smith and Ella Cruz were such a delight to talk to.


Ella Cruz has been with the brand since she was 10 (if I remember it correctly), which is for me is quite impressive because that speaks so much of the brand’s reputation. Ella candidly talked about her experience wearing the ever durable Gibi school shoes when she was still in school. Now that she is grown up she still loves Gibi Shoes. She represents the dynamic generation of teens who love colorful, trendy, comfortable and hip shoes. She loves her sneaker shoes (sneaker wedges mostly) which definitely suits her active and always on the go lifestyle.

Jasmine Curtis-Smith on the other hand is a little mature with her choices though like Ella she is still young. While she loves the comfortable flat shoes on normal days ,  Jasmine adores the chic, stylish and sexy stilettos, pumps and wedges for her commitments in the industry. I love also the fact that a huge reason why she supports Gibi Shoes (and should be a reason why every Filipino should patronize Gibi Shoes) is that it is purely Filipino and the shoes are Philippine made. Something we should all be proud of.


As much as we want to have the two beauties by ourselves, fans are waiting for them for the Gibi Shoes Fun Day. Ella Cruz wowed the fans with her hit dance video “Twerk it like Miley” which by the way made all the fans go gaga the moment she hit the stage. Jasmine was fun and all out in singing for the fans who adored her. Some fans were lucky to bond with both of them onstage through couple of games. And of course signing of their Gibi Shoes posters followed.

What I love about Gibi Shoes is that they are stylishly wearable, simple but chic, elegant, comfortable & all are of great quality – made in the Philippines at that! I can truly say that Gibi is a perfect shoe partner for your every occasion need (it is for me). In fact, that day, I was wearing Gibi Shoes! :).

Do check Gibi Shoes on your nearest shopping malls or your favorite online stores (i.e. Zalora and Lazada) and take your pick! You can also check them out on Social Media to see their latest designs.
