Tonic was born in 2008 out of one lady’s love and passion for shoes. The word tonic is defined as anything invigorating physically or mentally - this is exactly what Tonic aims to be for its loyal following.

All materials are personally sourced, selected, and approved to ensure the quality and uniqueness that goes into each pair that leaves the workshop. She’s not a one-woman team, though. All locally made, Tonic takes pride in celebrating the beauty and excellence of Philippine workmanship by its Marikina manufacturers.

In 2015, Tonic had to take a back seat to the owner’s new family. The desires of the heart could not be suppressed, though - shoes will always remain her first love. Tonic is now back in full force, inspired more than ever and set to create its best collections yet.

Tonic hopes that its efforts to thrive and expand will continue to reach those who possess appreciation for beauty, quality, uniqueness, and value for money.
