23 Jan To empower women through FSP luxury footwear
My name is Christina Jean Durante, Founder and creative director of Femmes Sans Peur, which translates to “Fearless Women.” For more than a decade, I have designed shoes for well-known companies. Recently, I came across a void in the market for accessible luxury fashion footwear that were emotional, well designed and most of all “comfortable”. There were always a limited variety of colors to choose from: black, brown, nude. My feet were tired of suffering for Fashion and I wanted shoes that would express my personal style without breaking the bank.
Two years ago, after taking advice from my life long mentor and Uncle, Alfred Durante, who designed for Cartier for more than 30 years, I took the leap to launch FSP. Alfred paved the way for me to create jewelry for your feet. We are bringing globally inspired creations bursting with color to the designer market without sacrificing comfort for style; bold statement pieces that will elevate your wardrobe. When you put on a pair of FSP shoes, you’re in disbelief that a fashion forward shoe could be this comfortable, you stand taller, and you think to yourself, “wow” I’ve got this.
We have invested a tremendous amount of time, money, and resources to get FSP to where it is today, bringing you incredibly well made footwear that is two years in the making. [Show me sketching a shoe and view over elements to build said shoe]. From concept through completion, each shoe tells a story and has a unique aesthetic. Inspiration is drawn through travel and art history. Each season, we source our leathers from the finest tanneries in both Italy and Brazil. We are committed to sustainable development and so are our suppliers. We work with expert artisans in India who spend countless hours perfecting our custom embroideries. We have partnered with an award-winning factory for sustainability and environmental practices, who take every care to bring our ideas to life. Key comfort components are built in to each style for functional all day wear and exclusive memory foam with additional foam padding are added to each insole board for extra support.
Every shoe is super flexible, yet durable for your benefit. We have made sure to pay close attention to every detail. On my second date with my husband, I slipped on black ice, fracturing my face and skull. I have taken every measure so that will never happen to you in an FSP shoe! Each leather outsole features built in rubber pods or lugg bottoms so you will never slip on the go! Our signature lotus flower ornament also adorns the bottom of each shoe, allowing you to experience divine beauty and awaken your soles with every step!
We came to The Wishwall because we believe in empowering women through footwear and need your support to fulfill our production orders for several luxury retailers and boutiques. Our backers will become VIP insider’s with access to future sales, rewards, and more. Our focus on comfort, quality craftsmanship, and style will change the way you dress forever… planning your outfit from the ground up. Are you ready to become part of our FSP family and awaken your soles?
