It is always said that with a perfect pair of shoes, one can conquer the world. These creative home-grown brands have picked up on that fact and have been elevating the local fashion scene with high quality and tasteful footwear that is unique in its own way.
The birth of Christy Ng can be traced back to 2011 when the budding designer decided to take a bold step into the shoe business and make her childhood dream come true. The brand has come a long way since then and is now located in several malls around KL.
Christina knows how to win hearts with shoes that are not only aesthetically attractive but also exceptional in quality. With the brand’s ‘Design Your Own’ concept, you can even customise your very own pair of flats or heels.

Yoke & Theam
Coming from a family with more than three decades of experience in shoemaking, it was only natural for sister duo Yokie and Yoke Sin to start a label of their own. Combining their middle name and surname, they established the Yoke & Theam trademark in 2015.
Reflecting the founders’ bold tastes, Yoke & Theam encourages women to be adventurous, daring and express their styles freely with edgy designs that celebrate both femininity and masculinity.
