You can never have too many chunky heels, especially when they’re Filipino made.
Everything chunky’s been having a moment. From sneakers, boots and now, heels. Seen on musicians and style icons these days, such as Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, and Ariana Grande, chunky heels have been the feminine counterpart of the edgy, platform boots. (Make no mistake about it though, the cool factor is intact.) It’s easy to spot ’em being sold by cool brands like Naked Wolfe, Nodaleto, and Jeffrey Campbell, but these Filipino-made chunky heels deserve all the love, too. Scroll down below for 5 local brands that we spotted on Instagram.
