Chingona Soles celebrates women in Phoenix through art. Artists, local celebrities, designers, community and business leaders will transform a black stiletto into a piece of art. Transformed stiletto are auctioned off to benefit a non-profit organization in the valley. In previous years, it has donated to Dress For Success and #WomenOfPhoenix. When the show was first launched in 2015, portraits of Phoenix Trailblazers and their mentees were displayed alongside the transformed stiletto; further demonstrating that Chingonas understand the value of passing on their knowledge to future generations.
