Here are the shoes' impressive features. They use only sustainable & cruelty-free materials to make their shoes; they are sport-cushioned to ensure comfortable standing and walking for 8+ hours AND they are bacteria-resistant, water-resistant, and anti-slip.
"Even though we are a very small company with a limited budget, we are fully committed and invested in the integrity of our brand and in manufacturing quality products," says Sy Mahatthanarak, the brand's founder.
"My partner, Lisa, and I spent a lot of time and expense in and out of the sample room, working with local Thai artisans. Month after month, we tore down each shoe and rebuilt them piece by piece, paying attention to every detail and making even the tiniest adjustment, to find the perfect fit," Sy further explained.
The pair started this project back in October 2017. It was a tumultuous time for Sy as her family leather bag business was hit hard by the economy. She and Lisa McKeithen met while networking and soon discussed their passion to create comfortable high heels. Lisa is a half Thai/half American shoe designer with over 25 years in the American & European shoe business who has worked for well-known comfort brands.
They hit it off immediately and put down their ideas as to what was missing in the shoe market. They knew that most large companies were invariably forced to cut corners in order to hit their margins but Sy and Lisa refused to be hindered by the same rules. They wanted to create beautiful shoes that were affordable, comfortable, durable, environmentally friendly, animal-friendly and what any woman wants: to be able to walk for hours without any discomfort.
To top it off, they are able to offer not only a sturdy storage box but also shoe dust bag, shoe trees and a waterproof grocery bag with each pair.
After their shoes passed their extraordinary criteria and got the thumbs up from friends and family (who actually tested them out on Bangkok's notorious streets and pavements), they were ready to launch. To their delight, and as soon as anyone tried them on, they wanted a pair not only due to the comfort foam insoles but also the choice of soft lining and upper materials which happen to be softer, lighter and longer-lasting than animal leather. HEXA shoes have proven to be THE SHOES for walking and dancing.
After sharing the news through their Facebook, Instagram and personal social media pages, they have gained massive interest and orders from their friends, both men and women, with the men rooting for a men's collection.
The project is now open for the public to pledge via The Perfect Office & Travel Shoes for Women. Their special prices and "only on Kickstarter's benefits" will end on Aug 2nd, where backers can get their shoes delivered in November 2018. You can help them succeed in their goal of raising USD$20,000 to bring these beautiful shoes to life.
To make sure women all around the world know about their shoes, they have upcoming shows in Osaka, San Francisco, Miami, Boston, Manchester and London from July 11th. If you would like to schedule a private showing, they are happy to hear from you via firstname.lastname@example.org
"We can't wait for you to try them on and fall in love with them like we all have," says Lisa and Sy enthusiastically.
