Quick Shop Update: How the recent Coronavirus Outbreak would impact our shop

We would like to provide a quick update onto how the coronavirus would impact our shop and how it would mean for your orders.

For customers who wish to order our men's and ladies' shoes such as winter boots, sneakers, and high heels, we sincerely apologize that they would be paused at the moment. Luckily, we already deactivated all our listings for men's and ladies shoes before any new orders came in. The reason why is because we have most of our shoes produced/ shipped from China, except some flip flops, and our shoe factory in China is currently closed. At the moment, we still have not received any notifications onto when the shoe factory would reopen. If you are interested in any of our shoes, you can reach out to us about which shoes you like to order if you saw them on Pinterest/ Facebook. We can send you a checkout link once the shoe factory reopens as soon as possible.

Our Mens Fashion Brand New Joggers Men's Leggings Men's Sneakers, Fanny Packs, and More Product Release

It has been the 3rd year since our clothing brand website has launched and we have now been focusing on this online shop to provide quality fashionable  athleisure clothing apparel for both men and women. We originally focused mostly on women's fashion but we are slowly adding more and more stylish men's fashion items onto our website as we do see that the market is craving for more unique men's fashion item that is much harder to find at the normal big box stores. Moreover, since our men's fashion designs are quite radical, a lot of our buyers do purchase our items for costume parties, TV shows, music festivals, rock music concerts. A lot of male customers are from all walks of life and they are mostly prominent and successful musicians, celebrities, fitness trainers, journalists, famous bloggers, surgeons, lawyers, real estate agents and more. We are mostly known for our unconventional designer men's leggings and men's low top and high top men's sneakers tennis shoes.

In order to better control the quality of our items, we are starting to selectively pick orders and have them shipped to our office to repackage first before we send the goods to our end customers. Therefore, the shipping times might be a bit longer than it will usually take. If you need to rush the orders, don't forget to add that to the 'notes' session in the checkout page and we will ship directly to you as needed. We are constantly striving our best to improve your shopping experience.

    11 Reasons Why Women Wear High Heels Stilettos Pumps Shoes?

    Are you those women who have an entire commercial size shoe rack full of high heels and sneakers at home? Does your shoe rack look like the industrial grade shoe racks at the major department stores? If that's a yes, then you maybe a heel addict/ shoe lover. In this blog, we are going to investigate why women like heels so much and these may be the reasons behind it.

    When you go on Instagram, you can find tons of cool and sexy fashion bloggers on Instagram featuring women who would splurge hundreds and even thousands buying high heels and shoes. A lot of high end department shops or shoe stores are selling these heels like stocks. All these women shoppers would spend whatever amount of money if they can find a pair of high heels that can match with their fashion outfits. They could be looking for a pair of every day heels for work, or a pastel solid color or floral rose pair of bridal heels for a wedding or plaid heels for a Christmas party or a Church event. There are also tons of women who are looking for solid color high heels for their bride maids to complete their wedding looks as a bridal team.

    1. A high achiever/ perfectionist

    They are high achievers or perfectionists. These women are likely to be willing to spend over $100 USD on their dragon long acrylic or gel manicure every other week. They like to wear hair extensions, or nail extensions and also false/ fake eyelashes or even go under the knife to look flawless. They may have a really rich husband so they don't have to do any hard work and can walk in these beautiful high heels daily. These women may also have a driver that drive them around town so they can walk in these sky high heels daily. These women want every thing to be perfect and they want the best for everything and they also have a very deep wallet for that kind of luxury lifestyle.

    2. Attention Seekers

    These women may be attention seekers and like to look extravagant and are looking for a suitable partner. When you wear high heels, your walk suddenly become so different and your hips turn more to give you that extra hip movement. This can drive male attention. To feel sexy, they wear these high heels to attend events such as a date, or at a rave party/ night club event.

    3. Big City Girl

    Maybe she's a big city girl who lives in the big apple such as New York City. Many New York women really love to wear heels and would be able to even walk miles in these 4 inch heels because they want to look perfect.

    4. High Fashion Industry

    Maybe she's a model or a stylist who work in the high fashion industry. She is constantly under pressure to look her best and put up a full face of makeup to greet her clients. In high fashion, women are expected to wear pointy shoes and heels to elevate their height.

    5. She's Short

    Maybe she's only 5'-1" tall and want to gain those two extra inches to look a bit taller. Short women have a tendency to wear really tall high heels so they can regain their self-confidence in these heels. Heels can be so magical and it has this energy that can elevate someone's look drastically though she might be wearing something plain.

    6. Special Event

    Maybe she's at a look to impress special event such as graduation, wedding, job interview, baby shower...etc. Women are expected to wear a some heels at special events just as men are expected to wear a tie at special events to show their respect for someone or an organization.

    7. Fashion Statement

    To make a fashion statement with their outfits. They may want to mix and match their dress or gown with the same color or style of shoes to complete a look in a coherent way.

    8. To Show Off Her Wealth

    High heels can be a status symbol as they can be quite expensive. High heels are expensive to make and showing that you can afford a certain brand new of high heels is almost like showing the world you can afford to buy a lot of designer brand new luxury handbags. Many women like to compare with each other and use these heels to show off their husband's wealth against each other.

    9. To Make Their Legs Look Longer

    Your legs can look longer when you wear high heels for sure. For those ladies who have shorter legs, high heels are life savers as they can make your legs look much longer and more flattering. As, short looking legs don't look all that great in high fashion when most fashion models have long legs and that's the beauty standard to be looking tall and rather thin these days. It's unfortunate how the high fashion industry make a lot of women feel bad as most people don't look like the fashion models that are over 5'-11" tall with the perfect face or body. But fashion is slowly changing to be more inclusive to people of different shapes, sizes, and skin color these days. Regardless, these killer high heels are therefore life saver and can improve the appearance of your legs.

    10. She is a Heel Art Collector or Potential Hoarder/ Shopping Addict

    They are heel addicts who are heel collectors. High heels are a sculptural piece of art that are wearable and functional. Some people like to collect wine or art, and some people like to hoard their heels/ shoes. Some men are into collecting limited editions street wear designer sneakers, running shoes, and hats. Some women are into collecting branded high heels and would even buy the same pair of high heels in all different rainbow colors to match with their outfits. She has a high heel collection at her home closet and she might have a shopping addiction and have a tendency to impulse shop when they find heels.

    11. She's a serial online dater

    Maybe she's a serial online dater who really enjoy going online and meeting different men and need these fancy high heels on those dates? When women are on the first date, they all want to dress to impress and look their best. Therefore, these killer platform high heels are essential to look fabulous on these dates. A lot of women with disposable income are willing to spend whatever to find true love and look their best. It's funny as there's even a research that shows that a woman would still invest a lot of effort to look best even if she's not interested in the date. Most women really care about how they look as a lot of women feel judged by their appearance. Just make sure you ladies choose a pair of high heels that won't make you look taller than your date as many men out there are very vertically challenged and do lie about their heights online these days so you won't make them feel so bad about themselves.

    Last but not least.. But what are trending women's high heels?

    Style alert? So your question maybe that what's trending this season? Many women are looking for animal print heels and plaid heels. But seems like many are really looking for more solid color high heels and something plain to not overtake their outfit. Our general style tip is that, if you are wearing a patterned shirt or dress, then don't wear a loud patterned pair of heels. If you are wearing a patterned heels, then wear something plain on your top and bottom outfits. We always want to create a sense of contrast and balance in a look to stay classy. Having a look with too much going on can make one look cheap or trashy. So, we want to stay away from that.
