Introducing Arianna: Pumps for the Powerhouse Businesswoman

For the modern businesswoman, style is as much a key to success as having a degree from a great college or a fantastic work ethic. How we present ourselves physically is the first thing a job interviewer or potential client notices about us. While some ladies have a natural sense of style, others may have to “fake it till we make it” in order to come out on top! While your entire wardrobe choice is important, nothing screams “powerhouse” quite like a sleek, sophisticated pair of classic work pumps.



Here, at UKIES, we create comfortable – yet stylish - shoes for powerful women. Our “Arianna” pump, from our AM-PM collection, was inspired by one of the most powerful women of our times: Arianna Huffington. A prolific author and international media mogul since the launch of Huffington Post, one of the most widely read news sites in the world, Arianna embodies the “power woman”. She’s been recognized by Forbes as one of the most powerful women in the world and Time Magazine named her one of the world’s most influential people.

To top it off, Ms. Huffington has an impeccable sense of style, and is frequently spotted rocking a “smart suit” and stylish heels. Her style conveys a smart, yet warm, femininity, and commands attention. Our Arianna pump is the perfect work heel because it can easily transition from desk to dinner. The Arianna is available in black, red, or metallic  gold nappa leather, as well as beige patent leather, with a comfortable, work-appropriate 3” heel.

We created the Arianna for the detail-oriented woman who insists on quality and is driven by technology - because we know first impressions last a lifetime. The superior craftsmanship in every pair of UKIES shoes will not only meet her standards – but exceed them beyond imagination.

I am in love with this shoe, and with the amazing team that created them. THANK YOU. I am in love with you! I heard about the shoe from an Atlanta magazine article and as soon as I read that the woman who designed these was an engineer, I thought “Finally! Someone who gets it!” I don’t need or want to look like a stripper when I am at work, nor be uncomfortable as I age. These shoes are perfect. Congratulations on bringing this product to market and thank you for doing so. As a soon to be attorney, I hope to be a customer for life.
