Can’t decide which shoes to pack for your next getaway? No worries. Germany-based footwear brand Mime et Moi, a collection of elegant sandals with interchangeable heels, has launched online in the U.S.
Customizing the sandals is quick and easy. Heels can be changed in just 15 seconds using a simple lever system, allowing them to click into place. What distinguishes the brand is the wide range of heel heights, shapes, colors and materials available, giving the wearer the opportunity to create a customized look that can go from a flat sandal to a 4-inch style.
Upper choices are just as varied. There are velvet sandals with fluffy bows on the vamp, double-banded styles, and ruffled versions. In addition, there’s a bridal offering done in white and cream that allows brides to quickly switch from heels to flats after the ceremony so they can enjoy time on the dance floor.
According to the company, the idea came about after its founders saw how their girlfriends often took their shoes off and walked home barefoot after a night out, prompting them to come up with a fashionable solution to a pair of stilettos.
Here’s how to order. Simply select a style and color for a single price starting at $159. The initial order comes with a flat 1-inch heel and another of your choice, creating two looks for the price of one. Then, add an additional heel of your choosing at prices of $25-$49 per pair. The extra heels can be stored in small duster bags that can then discreetly fit into a handbag or tote.
And, with the issue of sustainability top of mind today, these sandals allow you to expand your shoe wardrobe while keeping actual pairs down to a minimum.
For those interested in a heel changing demonstration, the website offers a video that explains the process.
