I started the company in July 2014 because my then 16-year old daughter couldn't find shoes of any kind in an ordinary mall. The continuous disappointment on her face when we tried to find fashionable shoes in her size has motivated me to find shoes for her and at the same time help other girls in her position.
The day I made the decision to start Zietshoes, I read a letter in a magazine from a mother who also struggled to find her daughter a pair of evening shoes in a bigger size for the Matric dance. She ended up buying a smaller size and had to adjust the straps at a shoemaker. That just confirmed that I had the right idea. I also hated the idea that one has to wear the so called “health shoes” if you have a longer foot.
Although my shoes are meant for younger girls, I also cater for mature South African women.
