Muňiz Shoes by actress and television host Carmina Villarroel is a 100% Filipino brand with materials sourced in the Philippines and handcrafted by local craftsmen.
Villarroel takes pride in her globally competitive Filipino shoe brand that also advocates eco-friendly enterprise. The stylish orange box shoe packaging is made from recycled material. The shoes also use eco-bags.
The shoes themselves are designed by the celebrity entrepreneur for style and comfort from her observation of international shoe trends, as well as from her personal experience of wearing stylish footwear for work.
The story of Muňiz Shoes tells of how the actress previously wore uncomfortable shoes just because the shoes looked stylish. Her love for shoes eventually got her into creating her own line of shoes using her middle name Muňiz, as her brand.
The actress personally oversees the creation of each shoe style from start to finish. She chooses the material and tests the shoe style for a day of walking or an evening of socializing.
The shoe line can compete with international brands with its varied selection of fashionable heels, classic pumps, and trendy flats that are available at competitive prices.
Villarroel named the shoe styles after the women in her life such as Gianelli for her actress best friend Gelli de Belen, and Catherine for former child star Janice de Belen.
Each style in the Muňiz Shoes line is a limited edition, sized from 5 to 10 with half-sizes.
