The Affordable LeggingShoes™ aka Balenciaga's PantaShoes.
Why let celebrities have all the fun when you can have the same style for much less? We give you the LeggingShoe in all colors for $47.
Ever since French fashion label Balenciaga showed its first PantaShoes on the runway, I became obsessed with them. PantaShoes - in case you don't know - are a hybrid of pants and shoes combined - or in our case it's leggings and shoes. They have a body conscious fit and are inspired by fetish catsuits.
I'm pretty sure there's other women searching for a pair of affordable quality PantaShoes right now. Just as I did for at least the past 6 months.
Disappointed with the trashy versions which are too sheer, made with low quality fabric that does not stretch back (no recovery), does not stretch enough or stretches too little depending on your shoe and body size (you can't choose your body size!) and really uncomfortable shoes. I was facing the seemingly only option of spending $2850 on a pair at Balenciaga PantaShoes. But before I did, I decided to try and make a pair myself. You may say: "That's a bit ambitious. What are your qualifications?" It's a fair question, but because I own a leggings fashion label and know the do's and don't's of working with spandex fabric, all I had to do was change the pattern to include the cover of a stiletto shoe.
Here's a look into how our project came to life. As I mentioned we started changing our leggings pattern to cover a shoe.
Then, of course, I had to find a GREAT shoemaker who was willing & able to finish it.
After a few months of trial and error, we got it done and we are ready to launch our LeggingShoe™ and share it with women from all over the world.
We decided to let our Kickstarter backers (Uber-Fashionistas) help us pick the colors from an exclusive range of over 80 solid colors. That's eighty luscious shades of sleek gorgeousness!!
They're opaque (non see through) too. Made from top quality 80% nylon, 20% spandex.
Once we go to market, we will offer about ten popular colors. Which is not bad, but it's really worth it to get it on it early and order yours now, especially if you want your LeggingShoes™ in a specific color, at an amazing price and sooner rather than later.
The prices and color choices we have right now are unique and Kickstarter specific, won't last. We will send you this list of the 80 colors and their corresponding order number/name to choose from once our goal is met.
The LeggingShoes™ features a very soft sheen and an elastic waist band. The LeggingShoe™ is made in the U.S.A.
Our Stiletto shoe has a 3.75" "ice pick" heel and once it's covered with our spandex, it can be wiped with a soft clean cloth.
Our LeggingShoes™ come in these Women's Shoe Sizes.
Women's Shoe Sizes:
Leggings Sizes are the following Women's Pant Sizes.
Women's Pant Sizes:
As an example you would order your LeggingShoes™ in US bottom size 6, shoe size 7. Or you would order EU bottom size 36 with a shoe size 39, etc.
Keep in mind that our spandex stretches 4 ways, so don't worry too much about the fit, as long as you pick your usual women's bottom size, they will stretch to fit.
