I was so happy this week to view and order some sandals for next summer.
Not just because they were cute and blingy and perfect for the warmer weather … these are all fabulous reasons, but there was something else: they will retail for less than $100; probably around the $70 mark.
In the bad ol’ days, if you had a longer foot you were typically only able to find shoes that were way into the three digits. Indeed, you were lucky if they were under $250 a pair.
They weren’t ever gorgeous shoes either, mind you. They fit. That was all they had going for them.
Having experienced this myself, like my customers, I find it novel when shoes are in double digits in terms of price. I used to stock two brands who qualified but both are no longer in business. Yet another reminder as to how tough it is in business.
So, I was especially excited to discover this new brand and will happily await their arrival in October.
Until next time
