Uber and renowned British shoe brand Charlotte Olympia have teamed up to create Uber SHOES, the perfect high heels for the Christmas party season.
The exclusive heels come with £500 of Uber credit to preserve the glittery design so that those who wear them will never have to worry about walking over cobbled streets to or from a party.
Instead, with just a tap of a button the wearer will be whisked to their destination in an Uber or even an UberLUX – for no extra cost at all. The credit is included in the price of the shoe, so that the glamorous owner will be safe in the knowledge that they (and their shoes!) can always get home safely during the Christmas period.
This comes as new research from Uber reveals that six in ten (61%) women are more likely to wear glamorous shoes if they’re being driven to and from the venue – a welcome respite given that they attend an average of four parties over the festive period.
Over half (58%) of women spend at least £50 on party shoes and 44% of those fork out upwards of £500. In fact, almost half (45%) of party goers will opt to take an Uber, taxi, or be chauffeur-driven, when wearing heels to and from an event.
The data suggests that women are opting for style over comfort, as picking a party outfit is revealed to be the biggest stress in the festive season for almost a quarter (23%) of British women.
Sold exclusively at Harvey Nichols’ flagship store in Knightsbridge, Uber SHOES are priced at £695, including the £500 of Uber credit. The open-toe, gold platform heels are perfect for night-time, with sparkling jewels adorning the buckle for added wow factor.
Once purchased, the shoes will be presented with soft leather tag containing a unique Uber credit. The credit is redeemable against all services available on the Uber app, but with £500 at your disposal it’s worth splashing out a luxurious journey in an UberLUX.
The shoes, sold in a strictly limited run of 14 pairs, are available to purchase from the newly refurbished First Floor at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge in November 2018.
Charlotte Olympia said: ‘My brand motto is “The higher the heel, the better you feel!” and now you can guarantee that you and your dancing shoes will be looked after when going from party to party this holiday season with the touch of an app.”
