As I've said on my previous post, I (together with 4 other bloggers) was given the fun and challenging task to design our own Shulong pairs. Did you know that Shulong shoes were actually inspired by Asian martial arts, Wushu in particular? It's ergonomic design was derived from Wushu shoes, which explains the extra padding that makes walking (or running) for hours a walk in a park of clouds. I could attest to that. I tried walking in it for hours, I even hiked in it! It was designed for comfort, style and individuality (hence the DIY kit included in black and white styles). So here are photos from their Trinoma exhibit and on the spot design contest!
Here are the pairs on exhibit...
I asked Mich to draw Angkor Wat, just a 3 tower one. Um okay. She drew the whole freakin thing. Hehe.

Mich and Bestie had a hard time choosing what pair to take home!

Resident artist Pedro Santi also impressed us with his on-the-spot designs! Some blogger loves had their pairs designed by him during the event:)
And then the main event began! Different schools were asked to design a random Shulong pair and make their best school spirit interpretation.

We had our own bets, in tagalog manok, in english chicken. Weeeh. Hehe. It wasn't easy judging ha. We had to consider a lot of things like the design, the use of different materials, etc. Anyway, after 2 hours of labor, here are the winners!:)
