Women in boots are confident and at the same time grounded and practical – that’s how we see Melai Cantiveros, whose boots collection speaks so well about her being self-assured and trendy yet a momshie who moves three steps ahead. Check out Melai’s boots collection in this episode of Kapamilya Chat.
First things first, the Magandang Buhay host prefers boots that are easy on the heels so she can use it for everyday work. She’s also not the type to wear fancy shoes when going out.
Melai first showed us her favorite – a basic black ankle boots, still with a sticker tag on the bottom. “Five years na ‘to pero ‘di ko tinatanggal ‘yung presyo kasi mahal, eh,” she quipped.
The latest in her collection is an après ski boots which she dreams to wear on a trip to Switzerland “pero mas alam kong makakapunta ako sa Baguio kaysa Switerland, so na-realize ko sa Baguio na lang.”
Her other favorite is a shiny leather Barbie boots with pink laces. Her daughters Mela and Stela also own the same pair. She also got a pair from husband Jason Francisco, and it’s glittery and stylish, but she hasn’t worn them yet “kasi size 6, eh size 7 ako.”
The oldest pair in her collection is a white combat boots. Keeping it fun, Melai showed her “most favorite” pair – her rain boots in camouflage, which she described as “pang-harabas, pang-everyday.”
