Innovation & Design

Gone are the days of sacrificing comfort for style, or style for comfort.

 

We are changing the game by simplifying women’s footwear with thoughtful design and new technology. Our designs start with function and end with style so that women can focus on the bigger issues that make our shared world experience better.

 

We are invested in timeless style, not in temporary fashion. Our shoes are designed to last through seasons, wardrobes, hemlines, and train stops.

 

We’re on a mission to empower women, starting with their feet. We envision a world in which women’s footwear supports any journey- where women can get on with their day, without worrying about blisters or extra changes of shoes, and still look going doing it.

Wedge

The ‘heel strike’ is the first contact between our heel and the ground. This type of barefoot collision produces a force up to three times your body weight with every step. Athletic shoes decrease this force to roughly half your body weight, which is why we all love wearing sneakers to work! Getaway Sticks shoes are made of a dense athletic foam, designed to reduce the force of the heel strike to sneaker-like levels. In contrast to traditional hard plastic wedges, our shock absorption eases the joint impact, allowing you to walk all over town without worry or discomfort. Wherever you are going, don’t force it!

Strap

Every shoe fits us a little differently. A little bigger here, a little narrower there… It leaves us having to contract tiny foot muscles just to keep a shoe on our foot. Adding a strap guarantees security, which lets our feet relax. A relaxed foot means a natural gait, and natural gait means less strain as the day goes on. Getaway Sticks are thoughtfully designed to elongate the leg with strong, elegant straps to sit high on the ankle. Walk in style, naturally.

Clasp

Why fiddle with buckling the same strap each day? Set your desired size using the buckle once, then use the clasp to slip easily in and out for faster transitions and fewer contortions. Set it and forget it.
