The Story

Chelsea Jones Founder of Chelsea Jones ShoesHello 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 came to me while working in investor relations, 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.

So, I started sketching, cutting up shoes, and researching the possibilities. Knowing nothing about the shoe business, I asked a lot of questions, had a lot of trials and errors, and step-by-step various parts along the path lit up. The original design concept, the SKIGH High Heel, has been tested, redeveloped and improved several times over to create what you see today: the look of a high heel, the feel of a running shoe. 

Along with a very talented design team in Brazil, our designs have been featured in Shoe Retailing Today, Chicago Woman Magazine, DNAinfo Chicago, and Women's Wear Daily: Footwear News where they won People's Pick for Comfort. Every purchase and rave review is a vote towards making things better for women, by way of great shoes.

Enjoy the journey,
