Ramen Shoe aka Sister’s favorite

Joel Wijangco

Handmade unique shoe, 2021.

Sister’s Favorite, a provocative and cheeky design, is inspired and dedicated to the designer’s sister, a teacher working in Japan. Upon hearing the news that her cancer had come back, Joel created the shoe to tell her story and to capture the moments they shared over a bowl of ramen.

Material: resin, rubber and plastics, with a fiberglass-coated metal shank imbedded in its sole.

First runner-up at the FFDC, a yearly local competition hosted by the Philippines Department of Trade and Industry.
