BENDY: most comfortable shoe AND my life's work

Navigating the style - comfort thing is tricky. I happen to know a bit about this as I hail from San Francisco and this is a city where style AND comfort count. We have some pretty famous and spectacular hills to maneuver in our city by the bay.

Having spent my entire career in the shoe business, I also know a lot about shoes and I care what my shoes look like. As women age, they sometimes  forgo style for comfort.  I was not willing to go there, so I set out to create a modern comfortable shoe for navigating our city streets.

I did not do this alone , I collaborated with a dear friend and footwear veteran  Caroline de Baere and we created the BENDY. Besides being uber comfortable, our shoe has a lower carbon footprint as it is handcrafted in our home state of California.  Because of this and because our shoe is more simply made than a sneaker, the BENDY has a big emission savings over a China made sneaker.  So the BENDY is good for your feet and gentler on our planet.

Women often describe wearing our shoe, like walking on clouds. To learn more and see for yourself what my life's work has led to, click here.
