About

Mbuba. is a startup social enterprise that creates comfortable high heels that appeal to fashionistas everywhere! We want to raise awareness of the amount of injury and damage caused by wearing those sky high heels, while delivering a fashionable and affordable solution to the pains we women have to put up with every day all for the sake of having sexy pins! 

We're here to tell you that pain is NOT the price of beauty, and it is possible to wear beautiful heels without any of the drama!

 Why you'll love our shoes! 

We arrived at the idea for creating comfortable high heels by listening to the ongoing complaints from millions of women everywhere, and fine tuned the design by asking the everyday women in our lives about what they wanted out of their heels. Kickstarter is a natural extension of our process as it allows us to connect with even more women and hear what you want.

Our shoes include:

  • flexible blended outer sole that allows your foot to flex naturally while you walk, eliminating that burning feeling on the front of your foot.
  • custom designed insoles that provide extra support and padding where they are needed most, to more evenly distribute your body weight.
  • dri-fit lining inside the shoes to evaporate sweat and avoid nasty odor and discoloration inside the shoe.
  • a range for women with wider feet.

 How you can help! 

Your support will help us get much-needed funding to:

  • manufacture our initial range including our limited edition winter boots.
  • meet start up costs for a website, day-to-day expenses and marketing.
  • leverage other sources of capital to make comfortable high heels a reality.

In a society where women are increasingly fighting for our right to define what beauty is for ourselves, we shouldn't have to suffer in our high heels all for the sake of beauty!

 TESTIMONIALS:

Risks and challenges

We’ve been perfecting our design and have tested them among a group of women of different ages and professions. The feedback so far has been astounding! We're confident that you too will find our shoes to be of excellent quality and deliver on our promise of comfort, design and affordability.

However, since we are a startup company, the biggest risk we face is delayed production and shipping. However, we have an extremely dedicated team of professionals, experienced business advisers and a strong relationship with our manufacturers. Should any issues arise, we promise to be forthcoming and keep you updated along the way and compensate for any inconvenience.
