Our Story

The Inspiration

Quality, comfort, and style define our approach to footwear at Emme Cadeau.  A woman going places needs shoes that reflect her joie de vivre, without compromising on comfort.  Our style and construction is quite simply, inspired by you.

When we set ourselves the goal of making a ridiculously comfortable ballet flat, we knew the woman for whom we were making this.  The professional walking to work, the mother running after little kids, and for me personally my mother, who spent 30 years as a math teacher, on her feet for hours at a time.  As a little girl, I remember the unsuccessful shopping trips, trying to find the shoes that would carry her through the school term pain free.  With that in mind, we've created these ballet flats for the women who more than deserve it.

 These shoes are built to last and designed to impress.  

We also believe in supporting other women, especially in entrepreneurship.  Therefore, a portion of our sales is donated to the non-profit Trickle Up.  Trickle Up provides the very poorest people with seed capital grants, skills training and coaching, and the support they need to create small businesses.
