Cruise In Comfort
Our mission is to help every woman find her new, favorite pair of shoes. Make that shoes that can be worn all day- whether she’s navigating cobblestone streets or headed to a cocktail party.
Handcrafted in Mexico, our footwear is purposefully designed by it’s founder Neely W.Powell, often described as a 5’2 comet of energy with a magnetic personality. As a professional shoe designer, Neely recognizes the importance of style, but passionately believes a woman doesn’t have to sacrifice comfort in the process.
