“Women today are busier. They attend to their families, they have jobs, they work out; some still go to school, and basically, they’re always on the go, so they need shoes that help them do all these things in confidence,” said Lina Claudio, president of Butterfly Twists Philippines.

“We offer products that complement the new Filipino women’s lifestyle, more especially now that we’re headed to a more fashion-conscious direction. The new Butterfly Twists just fall right smack in the middle of all these trends,” she added.
