Shoe makers set to ‘Dance On’

January 29, 2011

If you are a lover of shoes, as I am, then you may want to have a tissue on hand when you see these photos below.

Covelli specialises in selling gorgeous shoes, especially for those who like to dance.  One of our major suppliers in Australia is Dance On who are located in Brisbane.  These are their photos.  The first here is of the inside of their factory.  The water levels at this point are rising, and eventually reached to top of the TV shown here, 130 centimetres above the ground.

This next photo shows the son of the owner Bob, who is 6ft2″ crossing the road:

And finally, sob, these are the poor ‘soles’ that could not be saved!

It is hard to take in the adversity these manufacturers and family companies will face as they try to reestablish themselves and their businesses over the coming months and years.  I am in awe of the spirit shown by Bob and his family.

    Being a part of Covelli, it brings me sadness knowing the Queensland Floods have ruined so much. As a proud Australian, our people are strong and never give up, what ever the challenge may be.
