gorgeous - official Distributors for Bleyer
Shoes throughout the United States

March 2010, was a gorgeous "milestone" - our 6th anniversary as
the largest distributor world-wide, for the fabulous Bleyer range
of Swing, Rock 'n' Roll & Rockabilly dance & street shoes.

And from March 2008, gorgeous were appointed as the official
Bleyer distributor for the entire USA - we've already been the
Australian & New Zealand distributors for over 10 years.

                             






The "Bleyer" Range

Bleyer shoes  -  made entirely by hand, each model is crafted to be as
lightweight as possible, while providing shock absorption and comfort
during the rigorous pounding, hopping, rock-stepping, spinning and
landing that is so much a part of swing & rock 'n' roll dancing

And of course, this superior construction also makes
them especially suitable for normal street wear

The majority of the Bleyer shoes range are "uni-sex" shoes, and  
they're great dancin' shoes for both the gals 'n' guys







It can be very difficult to find top quality, durable,
reasonably priced Vegan dance & street shoes

A growing number of Vegans worldwide are
now choosing to wear shoes from the
extensive Gorgeous BLEYER range

Particularly as there's an exceptionally wide
choice of styles - plus you can also choose
your own colours from an equally wide
choice of non-leather, synthetic materials

NO shoes on this page include animal products & all
are manufactured from man-made, synthetic materials

Also - all shoes from the Gorgeous BLEYER range
are suitable for both street & dance wear





YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR
COLOURS & SOLES FOR ALL
VEGAN STYLES





"Colour your world" with Bleyer Vegan Shoes
Bleyer Vegan shoes come in a fabulous range of fashion colours, exclusive to
gorgeous, & shown below are some of the shoes made for our customers

There's over 50 colours available, which enables you to let your imagination
“run riot” - because YOU can choose the colours for YOUR new shoes

If the colour-combination you like is not shown below - then "no probs"
you just choose which colours you want in each colour-zone



BOOGIE WOOGIE
         
              
If you can take your eyes off off the girl in the video clip, the male dancer is superb.
He never moves his shoulders compared to what his feet & knees are doing.   And the top of his head stays at about the same height, no matter what.
This is a pianist from Switzerland who plays some of the best Boogie Woogie anywhere.   
He is so BIG over in Switzerland & Europe, that they hold a week-long Boogie Woogie contest every year & all the best players & dancers in the world are invited.
In this video he is joined by 2 amazing dancers.   
The male dancer even has a haircut from the forties!
Turn up the volume, watch & give it a listen & view!   
If you experience any trouble tapping your foot to the beat, then you had better hurry along & schedule an appointment with your physician.
And it probably comes as no surprise to anybody who dances, that both of these amazing dancers are wearing Bleyer's "Rock & Roll" style dance shoes.    (see samples further down this page)
FOR THOSE TOO YOUNG TO REMEMBER, THIS IS HOW THE BOOGIE WOOGIE WAS DONE!
(And of course, the "Rock & Roll" style is also available as a Vegan shoe.)

How to order your coloured Bleyer shoes

It's surprisingly easy - choose which colours you want in each style's shoe zones
then email us this info & we'll advise re colour availability & manufacturing time


Bleyer Intelli-Insoles
         

One of the many reasons we like dealing with Bleyer so much, is that  
they're always at the "cutting edge" of footwear development...
And true to form, they weren't prepared to "rest on their laurels",
they've now come up with the Bleyer Intelli-Insoles...
We've personally danced with the Intelli-Insoles & they're nothing
short of fantastic - & they have the "science" to back this up...
Intelli-Insoles are manufactured using "Contourex® Memofoam"...
So for those of you with a "technical bent" - the following facts
& figures makes for some very interesting reading...


What is Contourex® Memofoam ???
Contourex® Memofoam is the combination of elastic & viscous properties in the one material, which in physics is referred to as a "visco-elastic" system.    In this context, "Viscous" means steaming or flowing properties - "Elastic" means the reversible, distortable part of the material.
These properties can be illustrated using a "tensile test".    The control specimens are stretched using an increasing tension - then released by suddenly slackening the tension.    An elastic material immediately or quickly returns to its original size or shape (Fig. 1).    Contourex® Memofoam returns to its original shape after approx 3 minutes (Fig. 2).
    

What can Contourex® Memofoam do ???
With Contourex® Memofoam, an "intelligent shape foam" has been developed based on a synthetic rubber with visco-elastic material properties.    From a physical point of view, our skin also represents a visco elastic system.   
The biomechanical properties of the skin are dependent not only on the skin structure, but also on the size of the cells, the cohesion of the individual skin layers & the complex interaction of the internal fibre structures.
From a physical point of view, the properties of Contourex® Memofoam & the biomechanical properties of human tissue form an almost identical comparison .   
For example, this manifests in the fact that body heat & body weight transfer an optimum pressure distribution on Contourex® Memofoam Insoles.    This reduces pressure points on vulnerable parts of the body.
Fig. 3 shows dynamic pressure load without (on the left), & with Contourex® Memofoam (on the right).


It is precisely the delayed re-shape properties of Contourex® Memofoam which adapts to the foot as it changes during dancing, or through the course of the day.    These properties enables the formation of an adaptable, comfortable & individual footrest at all times, & under almost any circumstances.

Contourex® Memofoam Physical Data


Some other Contourex® Memofoam benefits
   ã  Porous & Breathable
   ã  Moisture absorbent
   ã  Excellent compression ratio set (also in moisture state)
   ã  Washable up to 30º celsius (86º fahrenheit)




Gorgeous Vegan shoes are non-standard
to the usual Bleyer range
They are made completely separate from
other Bleyer shoes by a craftsman
dedicated to this purpose
This ensures there is NO contamination by
animal products in their manufacture
We have personally visited the Bleyer factory
in Germany & it's very much "1st world"
It is certainly NOT one of those dreadful
3rd world "sweat shop" operations
Our Vegan shoes range is manufactured
under an EXCLUSIVE world-wide
Bleyer - Gorgeous arrangement
