How It All StartedAbout Us

Hello Gorgeous! This brand began with the quest to make women's heels feel better. To feel more like running shoes with support, flexibility + cushioning, all built into effortless styles for work + travel.

The idea first developed while wearing heels to work everyday. One day I got home, my feet throbbing in pain, saw my running shoes sitting at the front door and thought: I wish high heels could feel more like running shoes. I started to notice how often other women would complain about their heels and decided I might be the person to fix this problem. 

On a mission to change the way heels feel, I sketched and researched a lot of ideas, met with people in different parts of the industry, eventually traveled to Brazil to start the first prototypes, and step-by-step the pieces started to come together. Launched in February 2013 in-stores and online, the original concept SKIGH High Heel, has been tested (I personally test every style we offer), redeveloped and improved several times over to create what you see today: the look of a high heel, the feel of a running shoe.  

It gives me great pride to see women wearing our shoes and expressing how they make them feel. Women are the reason this all started and why we keep going. Every purchase and customer review is a vote towards making things better for women, by way of great shoes.

Enjoy the journey,
