Whether fashion or decor, I’m always on the hunt for unique and exciting ways to make your day all around easier. Are you having an outdoor wedding or attending one but concerned with wearing heels that may sink into the grass? Or even to have better support on your heels when walking and prevent heels getting stuck in cracks? Enter The Solemates, a great heel concept founded by two friends Becca & Monica who both longed for a better way to walk in heels.
Fast-forward about ten years, and Becca & Monica were sitting next to each other at Columbia Business School. When it came time to write a business plan in one of their classes, Becca shared her long guarded idea to create a product for high heels to protect them and prevent them from sinking into the grass. Monica, then in her mid-twenties was in the throws of wedding-fever. She was averaging ten to fifteen weddings a year and since at least half of them were taking place outside, she was very aware of the hazards that had befallen her shoes. The sensation of sinking into the grass – the feeling of helplessness as the heel ripped through the earth and became dirt encrusted was among her biggest annoyances.
Relating immediately to Becca’s frustration, the two friends set out to create a product that would finally put an end to this costly and distracting problem. And so was born the Solemates High Heeler®!
Their dream became a reality when they launched their website and began to sell the product in one color and one size. As demand grew, and customer feedback became more dynamic, Becca & Monica rolled out new colors and new sizes. They didn’t want anyone to have to ruin their shoes or lose their balance when in high heels.
Solemates are now available in twelve styles and are sold in over 2,000 retail locations around the world.
The patented design of the Solemates High Heeler® is mechanically engineered to fit snugly on most heels and yet the flexible material grips securely without damaging the heel or compromising the aesthetics of the shoe.
