THE CT 124 PEGS SERIES: PEG #5 (PRODUCTS) “BOOTS”

Hi! I have moved to a new home,  “THE SHOEPERSTAR!” Pamela from Manila has now transformed to THE SHOEPERSTAR! Visit us! 

 

THE 124 PEGS SERIES is a series of blogposts about pegs that I want to explore and learn more about as a designer. It’s part of our Apparel Accessories class as UP Clothing Technology students, as our prof. Ma’m Kitty encourages us to generate new design ideas. Let’s see the different pegs I have chosen:

THE CT 124 PEGS SERIES: PEG #5 (PRODUCTS) “BOOTS”

WHAT ARE BOOTS:

Boots are worn both for their functionality – protecting the foot and leg from water, snow, mud or hazards or providing additional ankle support for strenuous activities – and for reasons of style and fashion. Most boots mainly cover the foot and the ankle and extend up the leg, sometimes as far as the knee.” (Source: Wikipedia)

 

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT  THEM:

 It’s rarely that I wear boots because of the Philippine Climate. The only 2 chances I got to wear them were 1) Skechers Street Dance Battle Year 3, as part of our costume 2) Winter Season in the USA. And that’s it. I would love to have ankle high boots and incorporate them in my wardrobe. Like wearing a plain dress and some bad ass boots on.

 

PROJECT RUNWAY PEG CHALLENGE:

                Our climate doesn’t really permit us to wear boots, so I guess as a designer I am challenged to design something that we can wear here. Perhaps, rainboots or a better version of Doc Martens!

 

What are your pegs? How can they help you become SUPERSTARS?

THE CT 124 PEGS SERIES: PEG #4 (PRODUCTS) “PUMPS”

THE CT 124 PEGS SERIES: PEG #4 (PRODUCTS) “PUMPS”

WHAT ARE PUMPS:

  “A court shoe (British English), or pump (American English), is a shoe with a low-cut front and usually without a fastening. However, some have an ankle strap. They are usually worn by women, but are still traditional menswear in some formal situations, where the style is sometimes called an opera slipper or patent pump. Pumps for women are usually heeled. (Source: Wikipedia)

 

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT  THEM:

 Pumps were the only heels I grew up loving. It was my very first pair of high heeled shoes. The Classic Pumps are as classic as the basic black dress.

 

PROJECT RUNWAY PEG CHALLENGE:

                Pumps like the ballet flats, are “too” available in the market. I want to push myself and design pumps that will be unique, different, and comfortable.

THE CT 124 PEGS SERIES: PEG #3 (PRODUCTS) “WEDGES”

Hi! I have moved to a new home,  “THE SHOEPERSTAR!” Pamela from Manila has now transformed to THE SHOEPERSTAR! Visit us!

THE CT 124 PEGS SERIES: PEG #3 (PRODUCTS) “WEDGES”

WHAT ARE WEDGES:

 Wedge boots, wedgies or lifties are shoes and boots with a sole in the form of a wedge so that one piece of material, normally rubber, serves as both the sole and the heel. The design dates back to ancient Greece.[1] Wedge boots are more common for women and often have a sole that is much thicker at the back than the front, making it a high-heel shoe or boot. Wedges for women were popularized by Salvatore Ferragamo who introduced the design to the Italian market in the late 1930s” (Source: Wikipedia)

 WHAT I LOVE ABOUT  THEM:

I love wedges because they are more comfortable than your regular high heeled shoes and pumps.  And as a designer, your imagination can go wild in designing the wedge, from the print and the form. I believe this will be a profitable product!

 PROJECT RUNWAY PEG CHALLENGE:

                Most Wedges are worn for casual wear and some still opt to go for the classic pumps when it comes to formal wear. I’d like to push designing wedges that are classic and more appropriate for formal occasions.
