Jinga Shoes - The Latest Shoe Craze From Brazil
The Shoe industry is about to get a wakeup call. A world wide storm named Jinga Shoes is flooding the world with rhythm, style, je ne sais quoi via its own special energy. The eye of this shoe storm was pinpointed by two ladies on a Rio Kombi then exposed to the world at http://www.jingashoes.com. Jinga shoes, unlike your traditional shoes, brings the whole world a new attitude, brighter smiles, expanded energy and free flowing movement.
Rather than devastation and destruction, you have excitement and happiness. You have the essence of life. Move over “soul”, Jingas are the new “Wow”. Jingas are made in Brazil on a small scale with many colour runs that are strictly limited. The Jingaholic must keep an eye out to make sure they get their favourite colour before it is sold out.
The whole shoe, made of fabric and not mass produced in sweat shops, is made by hand without animal products like leather or animal based glues. Their light and flexible form makes them the perfect shoe for everyday wear and the natural choice for all kinds of dance and sports. A noted dance instructor said, “They do not rub at the back of your Achilles tendon and they give you lots of range of movement at the ankle joint.” They were originally designed for capoeira. Jingas are machine washable and come in all sizes from babies sizes up to Jinga size 46 (fits a UK Size 11 - 11. They can be worn all year round with or without socks. Unfortunately they are not good for wearing in the rain as they are not waterproof. The Jinga Shop doesn’t just sell shoes and run away with their profits. They give a percentage of their profits (5% minimum) to funding a social project in a Rio de Janeiro favela (shantytown).
This project provides activities and lessons for children outside school and helps keep them away from the criminal gangs that are a fact of life in many favelas. Jinga is the first storm in history to put a spring in people’s step, help fund a children’s project, make dancing fun and comfortable at the same time, eliminate sweat shop manufacturing and spread across the world as an eco friendly force. So whether you are walking the dog, cooking with friends, watching TV or doing one of a thousand and one other things, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t get your Jinga “flowing” today.
