These prosthetic leg covers are all kinds of amazing
Hilary Hagerman : August 10, 2016
As many people missing a limb will tell you, it’s hard to find prosthetics that allow you to show off your personal style. Enter British Columbia-based brand Alleles.
Founded in 2013, the brand was founded “in an effort to create fashion-forward prosthetic leg covers that people can afford” and with an “aim to empower amputees through providing choice of self-expression.”
Over the past three years, the brand has steadily been gaining recognition for their stunning designs , which have even been featured on the runways of Toronto and New York fashion weeks. And even cooler, some of this year’s Paralympians, like German sprinter and long jumper Vanessa Low, will sport the prosthetics during the summer Games in Rio.
