Queenie, Jane, Lena, Rhyan
What is the most popular color?
What is your best advice for buying shoes, if you can’t try them on first?
Pay attention to the width in addition to size- we offer many styles in wide width which can offer much greater comfort.
What if it’s not the perfect fit?
When shoes are a bit too big, try adding a halter to snug up the fit. There isn’t much you can do with shoes that are too small.
Tell us a little about trends for 2019-2020 for weddings – in colors and materials
- For bridal shoes- ivory and champagne colors remain popular for brides along with classic closed toe pumps
- For bridesmaids- silver sandals remain popular but many bridesmaids are wearing shoes that match the color of their dresses
- For Moms of bride- wedges and comfort features are really popular, but they still want fashion and jewels.
- Should bridal and bridesmaid shoes match the dress? Yes, particularly bridesmaid shoes which should match the dress. Matching shoes look so much better in photos and help complete the color coordination most brides want for a wedding.
What is the outrageous shoe that you carry – do you have a picture?
Carmine from Johnathan Kayne is a fairly outrageous shoe and we do have a picture
What is the best way to maintain the life of your shoes?
Clean feet before wearing will help reduce the wear and tear on the footbed of the shoes. Rain and stain dramatically helps the longevity of our dyeable satin shoes.
