A: BANGS Shoes was founded by Hannah Davis when she was 22! Our shoes are modeled after simple work boots Hannah discovered when she was teaching English in China. The name BANGS comes from the Chinese character for “help”, and we work to bring our mission to life in everything we do!

Q: Tell us about how “Every purchase helps a new entrepreneur.”

A: We take 20% of our net profits and hand-select entrepreneurs to invest in their business ideas! All entrepreneurs are vetted + the loan dissemination and repayment are facilitated by our nonprofit partner, Kiva.org. When a loan is repaid, we do not take the money back but re-invest that SAME loan with a new, different entrepreneur. This means that over time, one loan could cycle through innumerable entrepreneurs, growing many, many businesses.

Q: What do you want our readers to know about BANGS?
