It's good to be Kermit Tesoro. Known for his extreme and unconvential aesthetic toward his fashion and footwear line, the designer can now add online retailer to his growing resume. After only four days of selling his fierce footwear on his website, Kermit's shoes are not just walking toward numerous fashionphiles who are screaming to nab a pair, they're actually running and running out fast.

Self-confessed Tesoro cheerleader and business partner, Divine Lee, has told MegaStyle.ph that two designs have already sold out. Religiously tweeting updates on how items have been well received for the past few days, it only solidifies the huge demand for the shoes that have been described as 'out of this world." Previously accepting made-to-order requests prior to launching his E-store, Divine also excitedly shares that they have received a big order from a US based online store, as for who or what it is, they are not ready to divulge just yet, saying, "We'll definitely let you guys know once they've received the order! Haha!"

Having recently been part of the Lady Gaga x Gilt Groupe flash sale a few weeks ago, the young designer is definitely reaching an audience that moves beyond the country's shoreline. The future of Tesoro is looking bright, and the world seems to agree, which goes to show that the decision to make his pieces available on the web has already proven to be a smart venture for the ingenue, who debuted his first Philippine Fashion Week collection only two years ago.
