“I always listen to criticisms though at times it hurts. I weigh them and use the suggestions to my advantage. I never had any formal lessons with shoe making but I am sure which looks good and which doesn’t. One big no-no is having the toes of the feet slipping out of the shoes. The footwear may only contribute a small part of the total look of the girls but having that no-no can always make her look unsexy. No matter how beautiful the materials are, if fitting ain’t good then that is a complete eyesore.”“I don’t want my shoes to be overpowering but I want them to be complementing. The girls are always stressed out with what to wear – trying to look their best and I don’t wanna add to the burden of creating pairs which will give them a hard time pairing it with the right outfit. Aside from that, it will always be comfort over form.”
How about the matte nude heels, Jojo?
“Matte nude is friendly to both mestizas and morenas. I want to give both chances of looking good unlike glossy types that only go well with the fair-skinned wearer.
And during the final delivery of the pairs, Madame Stella actually fitted my shoes along with the girls. It made me want to scream with happiness. She’s really hard to please. Whenever she keeps on telling me that my shoes are nice and of good quality over and over again makes me feel like I am successful enough doing what I want and learning from the experience.”
“Not all will appreciate how I do shoes but hearing most of the girls thanking me for making it easier for them makes those sleepless nights and rushing pairs for them worth it. And I will never be tired of doing it all over again even others are size 11 or 11.5 just so I can see them walk with ease.”
