We originally had in mind to present a few women’s shoes by Church’s because we’d picked up on a number of comments made by women about their love of men’s shoes.
Well, we’re very happy to report that not only have the shoes been well received they’re selling quite well. I think that’s because they’re cool looking in a downtown sort of way and very comfortable. We’ve recently added a plain toe derby the Shannon in Sandalwood but our best seller is the black patent leather, stamped faux snake Thalia.
Church’s is an old English company that still produces their men’s shoes in their Northampton factory, but the women’s shoes are produced in Italy. I think it translates very well.
We’ve noticed over time that many women seem to be drawn to men’s shoes. I can only speculate why that is, appreciation for quality, sensibly made shoes, comfort, perhaps even nostalgic memories of shopping with their fathers.
We’ve heard your voice and now offer a range of women’s styles produced by Church’s English shoes. These are women’s styles created with more finesse and lighter than the men’s styles they are based on. They fit great and are perfect with jeans, or skirts. We invite you to come in and try a pair on for yourself.
