Decorated leather and woven cane boots with platform wooden soles, 2023.

Juana is a footwear that portrays the woman warrior of the Philippines, designed with its own cultural aesthetic. ‘Juana’ is an epitome of an incomprehensible femme fatale. A representation of a real woman warrior armed with beauty and bravery. The natural-born leaders who shed blood in every combat and bow to no men. Their armor plays a vital role in every battle, most especially in defense.
