Jeankelly – The Most Comfy Pumps You Will EVER Wear!

Thanks to a rather painful knee operation a few months ago I am currently unable to wear high heels. It has been a long and arduous journey, and I would not wish this non-high heel wearing lifestyle on my worst enemy. Imagine you are heading out on the town with your girlfriends and you have spent tens of minutes putting together the perfect outfit, only to realise that said perfect outfit looks completely ridiculous without high heels, so you change into something a lot less ‘wow’ because your brain can’t possibly put together yet another show-stopping outfit at a time like this?  That has been my life for the past six months and it has sucked. But, it’s not all doom and gloom because being forced to only wear flat shoes has allowed me to build a deep and rather salacious relationship with pumps. But not just any pumps. No - I, Crystal have fallen head over heels in love with Jeankelly ballet pumps – the most comfy pumps in the history of ever!

So I know what you’re thinking, “What makes these pumps more comfy than any other pumps in existence?” Well Darlings I will tell you! Believe it or not, inside the sole of each pair of Jeankelly pumps you will find hundreds of tiny invisible angels whose sole job is to make you feel like you are constantly walking on a bed of soft and squishy marshmallows. True story (I don’t know if that’s actually true but that’s what it feels like to wear these shoes so I’m sticking with it). Jeankelly shoes is the brainchild of Capetonian lass Kelly who has dedicated her life to making the act of wearing flat shoes a lot more exciting. Kelly and the Jeankelly team work to bring customers ultra comfy and chic all-leather shoes that practically beg you to wear them. The range is made from the highest quality leather and includes ballet pumps and sandals for ladies. Alas, there are no shoes for boys just yet but here’s hoping that one day soon they introduce sandals for boys too! I also love that all their products are made in local factories or by small teams of women from disadvantaged local communities.

The ballet pump range is made from ultra soft leather – including the inner sole - and it is this incredible craftsmanship that makes these pumps so comfortable. I can honestly say that I have never worn pumps like these and they are so comfy that when I wore them for the first time I didn’t even have to worry about wearing them in first – you simply slip them on and go! The pumps are R499 a pair and come in all sorts of colours and designs. My current favourites are the Paris Navy Dot (a navy blue pair with white polka dots), London Red (a ruby red pair which are bound to make you feel like Dorothy) and New York Silver (a black pair with a silver lining and a cute silver bow to match). I love that there is a colour and style to match any outfit and that the pumps can be easily dressed up or down. But be warned, once you own a pair of these puppies you will want a second pair... and a third... maybe a fourth. At the moment the range of sandals is limited to the Mykonos Sandal (R250), a stunning brown and tan Grecian-style sandal which would look fabulous with a skirt, a pair of shorts or a frilly summer dress.

Jeankelly shoes can be ordered directly from the Jeankelly website and can be sent straight to your door at home or work. The shoes are also stocked at a few retailers including the Collective Market in Kramerville (Joburg), Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein (Joburg) and Poetry stores in both Joburg and Cape Town.
