Few things signal the coming of Spring and Summer as vividly
as flowers. And one only needs to look at the floral inspirations
that permeate fashion to see this is true. Having been in
the shoe industry for over 16 years, I have seen countless
styles try to mimic natural flowers and preserve that spring
and summer feeling; however results are either flower print
or artificial flowers made of fabric or plastic –
pale imitations of the real thing.
This made me wonder: “Can we have something original
and authentic that can preserve the beauty of nature? What
if we incorporate real flowers picked at their peak into
the shoes?” Inspired by art, haute couture and modern
glamorous fashion belles like Sarah Jessica Parker, Reese
Witherspoon, and Julia Roberts, as well as the fantasy of
fairytales like Cinderella—we were excited to integrate
all these elements into the design of our shoes.
That is how our long journey to develop our floral shoes
began! We asked ourselves: Can we design an affordable,
stylish and comfortable shoe with currently available materials?
It took us lots of experimentation to finally settle on
the best methods to incorporate pressed flowers into the
upper and the most appropriate materials such as the non-woven
fabric backing, the clearest and thinnest vinyl, and soft
leather. Many hours are spent on arranging flowers meticulously
for just one pair of shoes. When we got our first sample,
we were all wowed by what we had achieved and the solution
we had found!
Style with artsy personality was born. Our next question
was: Can we make them feel comfortable for on-the-go women?
The experience of wearing shoes that left my feet blistered
and red made me think: “I have chicly designed shoes
that make me look fabulous but I can’t walk in them
for even half an hour. How can we fuse fresh fabulousness
with sheer comfort?”
We strived to discover various sources and finally love
the comfort created by the wing arch support and superior
materials such as Poron® memory foam.
Original design and maximum comfort are fused into our floral
shoes. Though it takes factory artisans hours to make only
one pair of the floral shoes, we know it is worth it because
shoe lovers appreciate these artisan pieces and the one-of-a-kind
looks Lady O brings to the marketplace. We are confident
you will treasure a pair of shoes that reflect your own
individual personality without sacrificing comfort.
