Nyssa’s Nod: Step Up!

By Nyssa Green, professional makeup artist

Ukies - BSA 1116Style and comfort … can the two exist in a high heel? According to Atlanta-based shoe brand Ukies, the answer is “Yes!” Husband-and-wife duo Umaesh and Kavita Khaitan are passionate about creating a better life and, in turn, a better planet—and they’re starting with shoes! “We have seen innovation in phones and everything else, but no innovation had been made here,” says Kavita, the company’s creative director.  The secret to their shoes is nanoGel® technology. Umaesh used his engineering background to develop a gel layer that’s added to the shoe to provide comfort not normally seen in shoes. As simple as it sounds, there’s a lot of science, podiatry, technology and style that goes into the making of their luxury shoes. Ukies talks the talk and definitely walks the walk! They’ve made it possible to look good and feel great in heels again!
