ABS-CBN actress Kim Chiu opened her closet once again to her YouTube subscribers, this time to show her collection of thigh-high boots—from her favorite designer brands to the affordable ones.

In her YouTube vlog on Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, Kim said she began collecting boots in 2006.

That was when she started performing on ABS-CBN's Sunday variety show ASAP fresh from her grand win in the reality Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 1.

The 30-year-old Kapamilya actress narrated in her vlog, "Ang kuwento talaga nito is dati kasi nung nagsisimula ako, wala talaga akong boots.

"And isa yun sa mga nahihiya ako na wala akong boots, so kapag sumasayaw kami, rubber shoes lang.

"Kung ano yung pinang-rehearsal ko, yun na yung ipangsasayaw ko. So parang inisip ko, gusto ko rin magkaroon ng boots.

"Hanggang sa pag nagsasayaw ako sa ASAP, pinapahiram lang sa akin yung mga boots so parang nahihiya akong gamitin yung mga ganun.

"So naging motivation ko na magsisikap ako para makabili ako ng sarili kong boots.

"So now, sobrang sikap na sikap na talaga ako and ito na talaga siya, these are my boots collection.

"Dahil lagi naman ASAP na sumasayaw ako so kailangan talaga ng boots. So isa ito sa mga investment ko as an artista."

Here are some of her favorite pairs of boots:

Online shops

The cheapest pairs of boots in Kim's collection are the ones she bought from an online shop.

Kim did not mention the website but said they came from China and had only cost her around PHP400 to PHP500 a pair.

She said, "Sobrang worth it yung pagbili pero pangalawang bili ko na ito.

"Nabakbak agad yung likod kasi nilagay ko siya sa mainit sa itaas so nabakbak. Kaya bumili ulit ako ng bago.

"And di ba so cool and amazing. Thigh boot boots ‘tapos ang ganda ng heels. Sobrang comfy 'tapos sobrang mura pa.

"Inisip ko lang dati na, ‘Ay, baka pag dumating iba na. But, no no no from China. So maganda siya kaya bumili na akong ng dalawang kulay."

"Sobrang amazing, medyo masakit lang sa paa kapag sumasayaw. Matigas kaya hindi ko masyado ginagamit.

"Siguro pag madaling sayaw lang, nagagamit ko ito. Amazing, di ba? Hindi pa ako nafe-fail ng boots sa online."
