Stacey Head – Founder/Managing Director – She Wear

After a career in operational management, Stacey Head was project managing and ‘flipping’ Brisbane properties full time. Standing on a nail during a renovation project in Brisbane 7 years ago helped spark (another) new career direction for Stacey. Rather than just thinking: “If I had been wearing the right shoes that wouldn’t have happened”, she decided to do something about it and her company, She Wear, was born.

The company is focused on purpose-designed footwear for women where compliant safety footwear is required or mandatory.

Stacey set about designing safety footwear specifically for women that performed the job well, were compliant and functional yet stylish and comfortable.

From humble beginnings as a one-woman show Stacey now employs 4 staff and has over 50 outlets selling her products within Australia and New Zealand. She is also exporting globally, with plans to boost the international market.
