Crowdfunding finished
Dancing is healthy: Movement, music, non-verbal communication — pure wellbeing! Only one thing has bothered us: wearing high heels. They are anything but healthy and can lead to serious subsequent damage. Should we really do that to us? We believe we can do very well without high heels. That’s why we developed a dancing shoe that is beautiful and elegant, yet comfy and foot friendly at the same time.

What is this project all about?

We have waited much too long for dancing shoes that look beautiful, elegant and feminine but take care of our feet at the same time. Let's make these shoes happen.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Dancing without pain for all of us. Let's dance a lot and look good while at it... ;)

Why would you support this project?

Because healthy feet are so important and because we shouldn’t put our feet at risk by squeezing them into unsuitable footwear with high heels. Several scientific studies show how serious the consequences of high heels are, not only for foot health but also for knees, hips and backs. Our project enables women to dance in beautiful shoes but eliminates the undesirable side effects of high heels.

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

We will commission production of the first load of shoes. We have found a shoe producer in Portugal, who has already manufactured two prototypes.

If we reach the second funding goal, we will instantly comission a prototype for a sesond design. We have already sketches for this design that feature different straps in the front part of the shoe. Of course, the comfortable and foot healthy properties of the shoe will remain.

Who are the people behind the project?

Anna Doebler is a mathematician, mother and enthusiastic tango dancer. Ulrike Doebler is a freshly retired teacher, granny and always open to new ideas of her children (and in this case of her daughter-in-law). Not only do both of them have bunions, but are really a good team!
