In Queen of Tears, heiress Hong Hae In (Kim Ji Won) boasts a wardrobe that would make any fashionista drool. Her closet is a treasure trove of exclusive designer pieces (she's the CEO of a department store after all) that even her equally stylish sister-in-law Cheon Da Hye (Lee Joo Bin) can't have.

The power-dressing CEO is mostly seen in stilettos and classy power suits, showing she means business all the time. But in some episodes of Queen Of Tears, Hae In ditches her high heels and changes into a particular pair of sneakers.

In the fourth episode, Baek Hyun Woo (Kim Soon Hyun) buys his wife Hae In a pair of sneakers after he sees her trip on an escalator. Hyun Woo gives the present in a guise of concern for her health. Touched by the gesture, Hae In wears the sneakers on the spot, heading straight to her meeting with Yoon Eun Seong (Park SungHoon). She also wore it in Germany in episode six after Hyun Woo finds her struggling in discomfort.

What is so special about this pair? They're not just super comfy with their chunky style, but the crystal embellishments make them a total fashion find, too!

Turns out, it's the Roger Vivier Viv Run Strass Buckle Sneakers in Technical Fabrics in the color Winter White.

According to its description, the running shoe is inspired by Roger Vivier's iconic creations such as the Belle Vivier buckle and Choc heel.

It is perfect for "the dynamic woman" like Hae In, who is busy with appointments as the head of Queens Department Store. It features a scuba effect fabric upper, leather detailing, front elasticated panel, and rubber outsole.

The Viv sneakers also come in Black and Blue Black. It retails for $1,268 or P73,497 online. If you want, you can also check the Roger Vivier boutique in Greenbelt 3, Makati City if it's available there.

However, in Korea, Naver reported that the "Kim Ji Won sneakers" is experiencing a sell-out crisis.

Citing the publication, Kim Ji Won said at a recent production presentation, “As the head of a department store, she tried to highlight the mature and relaxed appearance of a career woman.”

Queen of Tears, led by director Lee Jung Hyo of Crash Landing on You fame, features A-list stars Kim Soo Hyun and Kim Ji Won. Its popularity continues to skyrocket after it recently surpassed the ratings of the 2020 drama Crash Landing on You, securing its place as the highest-rated show ever on tvN.
