A little more history:
The Shoe Wheel is the brainchild of designer Danilo Torro, who formed a Hong Kong based company manufacturing private label fashion collections (including “Juicy Couture”) for Latin American and U.S. customers. After 13 years in the garment business, he eagerly sought to create his own product that would be free from the capricious nature of the apparel industry.
A few years ago, upon moving into a new apartment in Hong Kong, Torro–a former manufacturing engineer for McDonnell Douglas–got tired of having no storage alternative but to pile up his family’s shoes in the corner of their spare bedroom. Seeking a better way to organize their shoes, he came up with a brilliant idea to design a storage system that would simply make their life easier. This creative challenge fostered a four-year passion to develop The Shoe Wheel.
