Five-year-old Emile, one of three children in the family, has a special affinity for fivesuites, which he says are “the best shoes ever made.”
“It’s the only thing you can wear that is not made out of leather,” Emile said.
“And it’s the most comfortable.
They have a lot of ventilation, which is a good thing.”
Emile is among the children of the family that makes fivesues and said they’ve seen their price increase from $5.99 to $14.99.
Emile’s sister, Aimee, said she’d like to see fivesus prices go down.
“We’re not asking for anything fancy, but we’re just wanting to see it come down to $7,” she said.
She said they are currently in talks with manufacturers, and that the company that made them would be interested in taking a look at the idea.
“I want the price of a pair to go down to a certain level so that people can wear it,” Aimees sister said.
Aimei, who was born with an eating disorder, is the daughter of an elementary school teacher who also works as a social worker.
She and her sister were recently diagnosed with anorexia.
“There is not a day that goes by that I don’t have to take care of someone and I am so grateful that my sister is willing to help me,” Aimes sister said of the new fivesuit.
“For me, I can’t go to work without wearing it.”
In the past, Emile would have to be on his feet at all times and sit in his mother’s lap.
“It would be so painful to wear the fivesUtes, which are so uncomfortable and heavy, for long periods of time,” Emilia said.
But, now that Emile has reached adulthood, he says he doesn’t have any more concerns about the fivestsuits, especially after the recent release of the “Slim Fit” video, which shows people who are obese but fit well in a pair of fivesures.
“The fivesuse is a perfect shoe for me, it’s a shoe that I wear every day,” Emili said.
