Company Spotlight – Salvatos – The Folding Sandal

THE PRODUCT

Salvatos are revolutionary patented folding flip flops, for those moments in life you wish you had a spare pair of comfortable flip flops in your bag. Don’t give up on the things you love! Just put Salvatos folding flip flops in your bag and forget about ever saying “NO” when all you really want to say is “YES”!

THE COMPANY & THE INSPIRATION
Sivan and Mor Shalom, entrepreneur sisters based in Israel, founded Stand Alone Ltd in 2010, the Salvatos exclusive producer and owner of the patent.
The idea came after a night of agony on high heels as Mor came out of a concert suffering from her beautiful stilettos. A second before walking barefoot Mor thought to herself; “I wish I had a pair of comfortable shoes packed in my bag.”
Mor shared the idea with Sivan and having been raised by entrepreneurs, the two sisters decided to go for it and bring the Salvation of Salvatos to all women around the globe.

Starting the development the two sisters knew one thing – the product must be comfortable enough to walk on all day long and flexible enough to fold in half and easily pack into a small case. Another important goal was to keep those measurable toes in an “open environment” after suffering for so many hours. And so the decision was made to develop folding flip flops instead of shoes. Now 2 years later Salvatos folding flip flops are sold in shops all over Japan, India and the Philippines. The Salvatos line offers 13 solid colors and 9 printed models, allowing women to dress as elegantly as they like, daring to wear the highest heel they have in their wardrobe, knowing that Salvatos are there to save them at any time.

Our vision:

“To turn Salvatos into a world leading brand, offering women, men and kids the comfort of having everything you need packed in your
bag.”
