Risque customizes daily footwear with all indigenous materials. Filipino weaves, Filipino silk, Filipino wood carvings, and Filipino design all come together to make a shoe for you, a Filipino. The idea was to make the native, modern. Risque shoes are all about glorifying and honoring the wonders of the Philippines.
Wearing Risque shoes is like telling a story. This is a collaborative efforts of the carvers of Paete Laguna and Weavers of Buhi, Camarines Sur. People who wear Risque shoes aren’t just fashion-forward. They’re Filipino ambassadors who are out to tell the stories of their fellow Filipinos, and the stories of the craftsmen who made what they’ve been standing on.
