Meet the BENDY Founders : Mary Sue and Caroline

mary sue papale and caroline debaere Mary Sue and Caroline, BENDY co-founders

Caroline and I have been in the shoe business our entire careers. We met in our first jobs out of college and became great friends. Over the years we went our separate ways, career wise, but always stayed in touch.

A few years ago, having been in fashion for years and seeing first hand, its' impact on the environment, I decided to create a shoe that was kinder on the planet.  I immediately thought of Caroline to partner with me to build this shoe.  She was up for it and it has been a dream partnership.

Well fast forward to today and we are well on our way. We created a modern, comfortable shoe with a lower carbon footprint and the results are in. Women are choosing the bendy when they need to look good AND be on their feet all day.

The image above is Caroline and me on the first anniversary of our launch.   Please don't hesitate to reach out to us on instragram or facebook. Shoot us a question or a comment and we will be sure to get back to you.

If you have a pair, thank you for your support. If you don't yet, give them a try and see if the BENDY works for you.
