If you can commiserate with any of my struggles in finding shoes, you will definitely be as happy as I am to learn about Emyloo Shoes. I had the pleasure of interviewing Emily, the founder of Emyloo Shoes, this month and learning more about her company specializing in petite and custom-made shoes.
|Meet Emily of Emyloo Shoes!|
1. How did Emyloo Shoes get started?
The idea of Emyloo Shoes was many years
in the making. I have always been interested in fashion, specifically when it
came to accessorizing. I love to accent a simple, casual outfit with a cute
necklace, funky belt or a great pair of shoes. Unfortunately, shoes were always
a challenge for me to find. As a petite woman (4’11”, 98 lbs) wearing a size 4
shoe, I’ve always felt disappointed by the lack of options for women who have
smaller-than-industry-standard sized feet (generally a size 6). I always felt
like we were an overlooked population of women who were forced to wear multiple
layers of socks or shop in the children’s shoe department.
Over the years, I started coming
across other petite women who have shared similar frustrations and I realized
there must be many more like women with a need for small shoes. What
better way to reach these women than by establishing an online boutique that caters
to this select population? I decided it
was my duty to provide more stylish options for women with small feet. I wanted
women to have shoes that fit their feet and
fit their style of fashion!
2. You specialize in shoes 3-6. What if we have smaller or bigger
feet? Is it still possible to order from your site?
While size 2 is our minimum, we are able to make most styles in average or large sizes through our
custom sizing option. We can also work with women who have two different sized
feet. However, at this point in time we cannot make shoes smaller than a size 2
and keep them up to Emyloo’s high standard of quality.
3. Emyloo Shoes offers custom sizing options at no additional cost.
What are some examples of common customization options available?
We can customize almost every aspect of our shoes to better fit our customers’ feet. This
can range from simple measurements such as the length and width of their feet,
to more specific modifications like boot length, calf-girth and heel height. We
encourage our customers to submit their individual measurement and we’ve found this
option is extremely popular. Since many
of our customers have had past difficulties finding shoes that fit, they love
the opportunity to have shoes made to their specifications. In addition, customers
only have to submit their custom size information once; we’ll store their measurements for future orders!
4. All Emyloo Shoes are hand-made by artisan craftsmen. How did you
go about finding these skilled artisans to craft your shoes?
The process was a worthwhile
journey. We immersed ourselves in the shoe industry, scoped out new styles, met
craftsmen and made connections. Since then, we have built strong relationships
with a number of skilled, well-reputed shoemakers around the globe who
specialize in making and customizing stylish petite footwear for women.
5. What are some of your best-selling items you recommend every woman
having in their closet?
Our top-selling styles are simple
and classic designs with a lot of versatility. These are styles that every
woman can confidently add to her shoe collection, knowing that they will be worn
often and can compliment a wide variety of outfits.
Here are a few of our top-sellers:
