WIBES is a brand that sells ethical and socially responsible shoes combining European fashion and traditional African fabric (also called Wax).
Unique Value Proposition
WIBES designs and sells sneakers online combining the latest European footwear fashion with traditional African wax patterns that are crafted locally. WIBES sneakers are made for those who are looking for shoes that will make them stand out from the crowd. These special shoes can match any outfit on any day of the year. Also, WIBES customers automatically become part of a social cause as every pair of shoes bought finances one day of class for one girl or woman in need in Abidjan, West Africa.
Origin of the Project
