Anytime, Anywhere with Butterfly Twists!

You know you’re in for a treat when the table centerpieces are in the form of foldable shoes. Shoe lovers often quote, “If the shoes fit, get the pair in every color.” However, In this particular case, if the shoes fold, you can bring them with you anytime, anywhere… even at the dining table. Yes, that’s what UK-based brand, Butterfly Twists exactly did. To launch their new collection for the season in Manila, guests were treated to a special 4-course lunch in an intimate gathering at one of my favorite restaurants, Le Jardin, located in W 5th building, Bonifacio Global City. 


The foldable shoes added extra ‘flavor’ to the table, and of course they had to be a part of my food shots! Aside from the real dessert, these #BTwists pairs were definitely the cherry on top of all the delicious courses served to us that day by Chef Jonas of Le Jardin. I’d have to say, even when folded, the shoes already look pretty good. When I flipped open a pair to check how it fits, to my delight, I felt like I was stepping on a pillow! The comfort level is at par with its chicness level, and I am pleased. Apparently, the insoles for both the ballerina shoes and sandals are made out of Memory Foam! Woah… I guess the gentlemen behind the brand really took their unfortunate “stiletto situation” to heart. 

As shared over lunch, what actually sparked the creation of Butterfly Twists is that one of the four men behind the brand, who still succeeds in staying nameless at this point, had to attend a party wearing 6-inch stilettos after losing a bet. What an excellent entrepreneurial turn-out! Aside from ballet shoes, and sandals, they also have peep-toes, slippers, brogues, ballet pumps, and rain boots or “wellies” for women. The brand was launched in London in 2009 by Emmanuel Eribo, Frank Eribo, Mark Quaradeghini and Philippe Homsy. So, yes, it’s either one of them who had to work those heels that unforgettable day.

Below are some more photos from the fun lunch filled with great conversations, exchanges of laughter, fantastic food, and the latest from Butterfly Twists!

These metallics happen to be my favorites. I also just love that there are now pointed toe foldable ballet flats! There are even detachable ankle straps on them! Insta-glam! Each pair comes with such a functional and sleek packaging, perfect for gifts and ideal for storage. They also each come with dust bags you can use and bring with you when you’re on-the-go. Excited to wear these babies out especially in my next travels. Lucky feet! I think we can all agree that if you give a girl a comfy + stylish + foldable pair of shoes, she can definitely take on the world, #anytimeanywhere!
