Classy, vegan-friendly, made in Italy from a high-tech, waterproof, silky soft, tox-free rubber material – high heels by The Glow Brand not only look hot: each colour supports a particular charity.
Adventurers, do you remember last year’s denim and neon look? Yes, the one where I step into a lake wearing neon green high heels? Well, it wasn’t a fake move of a bored fashion blogger – it was a test drive: the shoes are waterproof for real.
Shoe Brand To Watch
Founded in 2013 in Frankfurt, Germany, The Glow Brand collection consists of just one high heel style, a very classic platform stiletto, which is available in ten fashionable colours, each supporting one particular charity.
Due to this charity support idea, the flashy colours, and the unusual material used, some press reviews dubbed the sexy heels “charity bracelets for your feet”.
I had the opportunity to chat with Tammy, the lovely founder, a while ago, and while it didn’t work out to publish our interview or the whole series yet (with the exception of the Amalena interview about ethical gold), I loved her passion, her crazy good idea of waterproof high heels, the novelty of the vegan-friendly and tox-free, bio-degradable material so much I shopped a neon green pair, and just recently, another one in nude, all that despite the fact that I gave up wearing high heels a while ago and never looked back.
Sometimes, an elegant occasion, a formal dresscode simply demand a heel – and for those occasions, The Glow Brand is the best option I could’ve asked for: slightly crazy and futuristic, wearable and stable.
The shiny material is easy to take care of: wash them and then polish them with a soft cloth and a drop of jojoba oil: easy-peasy. The glossy shine of these high heels is so unique and sings a siren’s lilt to both my geeky, game-y sense of aesthetics and to my love of all things throroughly eco alike.
So brace yourself and look forward for some eco-fair fashion looks, Adventurers! 😉
