    We know that are a lot of comfortable shoes in the market. I have been in the shoe business my entire career and I have been to shoe shows that have entire sections of 'comfort' brands. Honestly, most of them are not-so-attractive and I have personally never worn them because i choose style first, then comfort.  Many of us turn to sneakers when we need a long day shoe as there are very few stylish and comfortable shoe beyond sneakers. I happen to know there are a lot of other fashionable women out there that do the same. I know this because i am the co-founder of this on-line shoe store.

    Recently we set out to create a comfortable AND stylish shoe just  for this reason. We officially launched our shoe last week. It is part sneaker and part flat. It has a cushy footbed that is the kind you would find in a high performance running shoe.

    Another great feature of our shoe is that it is made ethically in California.  We support a community of shoemakers in Los Angeles.

    Take a read at all the amazing reviews we have received, just in the first month of our launch. We couldn't be  happier that so many of you agree.  Shop the BENDY here

  • Flat shoes that feel great : BENDY by Ashbury Skies


    most comfortable business casual shoe    The BENDY: a stylish, comfortable flat


    If there is one item that every savvy urbanite will snatch up on a moments notice, it is a stylish flat. Being a San Francisco company, we know a thing or two about the value of a good pair of flats for walking our famous hills. This was so near and dear to our hearts that we decided to create our own. After two years of research and development we launched the BENDY. The BENDY is a modern, comfortable shoe with a lower carbon foot print. It is hand crafted in California.

    The BENDY is a stylish flat shoe with good arch support. Our footbed sets us apart from other casual shoes. It’s the kind you would find in a high performance running shoe. The casual shoe industry often overlooks innovative and high quality materials in favor of cheaper ones that don’t wear or feel as good. Our removable footbed is breathable, lightweight, washable and will not break down or loose its shape after wearing.

    Many women tell us the BENDY is a good stylish, flat shoe for work too. Teachers and hair stylists and those on their feet all day are big fans.  The BENDY and a cropped pair of khakis is considered a savvy business casual shoe as well.

    All of these features put the BENDY in the  irresistible category for us.  Shop the entire collection here
