Introducing Pleasant Pumps. The world’s first comfortable sexy line of heels. I have combined the sex appeal of the 5” pump with the feel of a sneaker. You can finally wear heels all day without destroying your feet.

Awesome Heels:

I have added a non slip fabric and a unique foam cushion to the sole of the shoe that will conform to your foot over time. This will not only provide long lasting comfortable shock resistance, but better traction to keep the toes from being smashed against the front of the heel during long hours of wear. I’ve also incorporated a thin layer of foam into the lining of the counter (the area that supports the Achilles) to ensure the most supreme fit. This will keep the foot from slipping in and out of the heel. Combine this with an interior silk lining and the heel is practically blister proof. 

My Goals:

My goal is to be able to share Pleasant Pumps with as many people as possible which means keeping Pleasant Pumps close to our customers. I want you to be able to come into my store and tell me your thoughts on how we can improve, what things you like, and what I can possibly do to make our heels even better. Lets give our feet the fairytale ending they deserve.

Why I’m doing this: 

Let me tell you a little about how I came up with the idea and why I feel its so important that women everywhere have the opportunity to own a pair of Pleasant Pumps. Being a woman, I have worn my fair share of heels; including peep toes, platforms, wedges, short heels, tall heels, and stilettos. I have rocked them all and I can say one simple thing about every single pair of heels I have ever put on my feet. The ones that start out comfortable will end up feeling just as awful as the ones that are uncomfortable from the very beginning. After many months of research ripping apart many pairs of heels I have uncovered the horrible truth behind why so many women suffer on a daily basis. In all of the shoes that I tore apart there was one constant: the standard 1 mm of cushion that stood between the foot and the wooden insole. We shouldn't have to purchase insoles and purse flats because the heels that are being sold don't have a proper sole. I say this as a woman who has walked barefoot on the las vegas strip from my feet being mutilated with blisters from my heels. As a woman who goes out with a pair of heels on and comes back wearing a ten dollar pair of purse flats. I created Pleasant Pumps out of sheer frustration and and I developed a product that I would be proud to give anyone.

My Thanks:

Your pledge will help me to launch the bulk production of pleasant pumps so we can start sharing our heels with the world.

Risks and challenges

Not everyone's feet are the same. I have developed the current line of Pleasant Pumps with my own foot comfortability in mind. The challenges that we face are Pleasant Pumps not being perfect for everyone. But with our attention to detail and my passion for making sure all women can wear Pleasant Pumps, we will be altering, modifying, and possibly even making separate cushion lines for people with different needs. Which is why feedback is so important to me.
