Whenever I'm traveling, I like to bring one fashionable (mid to high heeled) and one comfortable (flats) pair of shoes. Because honestly, I want to look good in photos. Who doesn't? I'm definitely one to endure
mild pain for fashion. (hello i'm G, and i'm a fashion victim.)
Long story short, I went to Hong Kong and wore my
most comfortable lace up wedged heels on the first day and my feet were killing me by late-afternoon. Bought a pair of Ipanema ♡ accented slippers just to make it through the night and by the next day my Pink Nike hi-cuts were not THAT comforting anymore. So I decided to search for a pair of ballet flats and found myself inside Jipi Japa at Langham Place.
"Jipi Japa is a comfortable and casual ladies footwear brand launched in Hong Kong in Fall/Winter 2006. It is originally a Spanish word pronounced as ‘Hepe Hapa’. Jipi Japa aims to become a key player in the footwear industry with the distinctive positioning as a comfortable and yet stylish footwear brand."
I couldn't agree more. Please say hello to my aching feet's savior:
sorry for the dusty sole, i've been wearing it a lot. The rubber sole makes me feel like i'm walking on sunshine ohhh! *apologies for bursting into song*
They're lightweight and stretchy = comfortable, it puts my Tory Burch Reva flats to shame (and at half the price!) Plus it looks simple and cute, I can easily pair it with most of my clothes and bags. I will happily visit and purchase another pair when I go back to Hong Kong.
got any favorite brands for trusty ballet flats? Do share! :)
