Our Story

Original Sole is an Australian owned company specialising in unique & innovative shoe accessories. We have a passion for shoes and have developed products to make it even more enjoyable to wear them!

We have a strong commitment to product development, design and style. Original Sole was developed to fill a need in the market for solutions for wearing your stylish shoes. There are currently 2 main products Shoe Sole Grips & Heel Huggers, with other exciting products to be released soon.

The Shoe Grips were developed to help women to be able to walk with confidence in their shoes. Make no mistake about it, whether they are completely flat shoes, wedges, boots or 5 inch stilettos, the base of most shoes soles are made with little or no grip, and most of us have embarrassing slipping stories to tell! Applying a Shoe Sole Grip helps to prevent these moments from happening. What more could you ask for?!

Heel Huggers are the other fabulous product from Original Sole. They are a unique, brand new product world wide (patent pending). Managing Director & shoe lover Vanessa Cage, wanted to find solutions to help prevent ruining beautiful heels. “Call me clumsy, but my heels would always manage to find the smallest holes or cracks in sidewalks, and then ruin my heels. My heart would stop every time I had to check my heels to see if I had damaged them…. which most of the time I would have! I had enough of throwing my beautiful shoes away because of the heels looking worn and damaged and decided that there must be a way to protect them, without comprising the look of my shoes.

So I was determined to find a solution. My partner and I put our heads together, combining two different trains of thought – mine, looking from the fashion side of things and his, for the technical and material aspect. With extensive research, design and engineering, the Heel Huggers were born!! Now women everywhere can walk with style and confidence in their shoes."

We are so pleased with the overwhelming positive response we have received for our shoe accessories. We can’t wait to release more exciting products for shoe lovers to enjoy!
