Women have a new solution for the age-old problem of uncomfortable high heels and the dreaded disposable pedicure shoes.
Alissa Kraisosky was trying to walk back to her hotel during a convention in Las Vegas. Her feet were hurting, but there was no way she was planning on walking barefoot along the Las Vegas strip. (Ladies, you know that is a tough decision to make when it feels like fire and needles are piercing your feet.) She ended up taking two hours to get back to the hotel … wishing with every step there were shoes she could pull out of her evening bag to wear.
That’s when SummerJasmines were created. She had no clue about what to do, or who to contact. She simply had an idea and knew what she wanted them to look like — stylish and durable.
After two years and many revisions, the comfortable crystal-studded SummerJasmines were born. The sandals, which easily fold in half, are sold with a satin bag that can easily double as a wrist clutch. The shoes are also designed to separate each toe, eliminating the need for the disposable flipflops at the pedicure salon. “Slide them on right before you get a pedicure, and then just walk out of the salon – no need to wait anymore for your polish to dry,” Alissa told Beyond Black Beauty.
The shoes are currently sold in four colors: black, silver, gold and red for $38. Be on the lookout for additional styles, including a bridal and bridesmaid design.
