Nene Shoe Creates a Sophisticated Approach to Matching Mother / Daughter Footwear

“Currently, our flats, wedges, and derbies attract both women and kids, because the designs have components that appeal to both,” says Designer Jasmine Mendoza.

Nene Designer and Creative Director Jasmine Mendoza, along with her husband Froilan as Technical Director, are introducing a new fashion line of wedges, flats, derbies and sneakers for mothers and daughters. Inspired by global international travel, Froilan and Jasmine combined their strengths to become the husband-and-wife team behind Nene Shoes.

Nene Shoes (pronounced /ne-ne/, “ne” as “net”) is based on Jasmine’s mom’s name, Nene M. Pamintuan. In the Filipino language, nene means little girl or young woman. While growing up in the Philippines, the rich culture of sights, tastes and sounds offered an influential base. In 2013, Jasmine left a corporate life involving travel as a consultant to join a financial services company. As her schedule stabilized, she was able to use her creativity to build something of her own. By leveraging her husband Froilan’s start-up expertise, Jasmine and he partnered to implement their shared vision: Filling a void in the market for a more sophisticated approach to mommy-and-me shoes. Jasmine started designing in 2014 and launched the first Nene Shoes collection in 2015.

Nene shoes has the kid-meets-adult look. Jasmine explains, “An exciting kid’s shoe can have the sophistication and practicality of an adult shoe. It doesn’t need bows, overly done designs, or boxed toes. My daughter wants to imitate what I wear, and at the same time, I want her to experience and enjoy some of the more mature-yet-practical styles in the same way that I do. Currently, we have flats, wedges and derbies for women and kids. Each style has two-three colorways. For Spring 2017, we are adding more styles and introducing slip-on sneakers which will initially be available in two colors.

“In my twenties, I traveled extensively in Asia, Europe and the United States,” Jasmine recalls, “I lived in Hong Kong, Germany, and the United States for months at a time, while shuttling back and forth to Manila. I observed what people wore to better understand their tastes, needs, and desires, based on their demographics. When I visit the Linea Pelle fairs, I am constantly on the lookout for new leather materials and prints. At times, the materials create an initial inspiration for the design and construction of shoes–not the other way around. Currently, our flats, wedges, and derbies attract both women and kids, because the designs have components that appeal to both.

“If you look at the footwear market today,” Jasmine continues, “kid’s shoes are usually made from man-made or synthetic materials. As much as possible, we like to use genuine leather, while maintaining competitive prices comparable to other brands’ synthetic shoes. We don’t compromise design or quality for the sake of anything. All designs bear our signature logos, a woman’s and kid’s footprint placed side by side, to create an image of a butterfly.”

“Most importantly, I look at the practicality and comfort of the design. As a mom, I would only buy what I think is best for my kids. Also, all of our styles are named after our immediate family members and often reflect their personalities.”

“I am particularly inspired by unique geometric prints, beautiful color palettes and how existing things are enhanced to create something entirely new. What is most important,” she emphasizes, “is the shared experience between the mom and the kid, as they bond over wearing the same shoe design. We are currently exploring the idea of designing baby’s shoes and apparel as well. This is our vision for Nene Shoes.”

Through one of its women’s lines, Nene Shoes was able to help support an indigenous tribe in the Philippines, and they will soon be partnering with the Children’s Museum of the Arts in NYC for New York Fashion Week.
