Miss Kookie Buhain is the badass girl of the blogasphere! When Gold Dot was still starting back in 2010, she’s the first blogger who helped us acquire a bigger audience and clientele. We could say that she is undeniably the brand’s muse! Read the interview and you’ll now why! Well, of course you already know… wink*
MAX hours in heels?
Ø It really depends on the make of the shoes. For those platform shoes with the right cushioning, I could probably last in them for a whole day. For the uncomfortable ones, well, that’s a whole different story.
What’s your first GD SHOES?
Ø Astrud Boots. I still love them!
How many shoes do you own as of today?
Ø My slum book answer for this would be: TOO MANY TO MENTION (Hahaha!
Any weird habit with shoes (smelling the leather before going to bed, keeping shoes in the boxes, cleaning soles after every use lol )
Ø None as of late. When I was in grade school though, I was really anal when it comes to newly acquired shoes. I would walk ever so delicately to avoid the leather from getting creased.
Say yer gon design a shoe collab with GD, what would be its name? And most importantly what kind of shoes is it?
Ø I’d name it after myself of course! Haha! And of course, it will be a special pair of platform boots.
What’s yerfave GD shoes?
Ø It would have to be my Leviathan wedges and my Astrud boots.
Team Chunky or Team sexy?
Ø I’m more of a Team Chunky but you also need sexy heels once in a while to make you feel, well…sexy!
If tomorrow’s the end of the world, what shoes are you gonna wear? Why?
Ø You’d probably expect me to wear something fabulously grand but I think I’d go with a simple pair of flat boots. It’s the end of the world and I would want to be able to walk, run and dance around freely with the people I love — I won’t be able to do these in towering heels now, right?
Any funny experience with shoes you’d like to share?
Ø I have this deadly unstable pair of clog platforms from Zara. I almost toppled over a hill while wearing them.
Message to Gold Dot?
Ø You make the Filipinos proud! Keep on coming up with one-of-a-kind creations. You guys rock!
