For the love of shoes
It’s not all off-the-wall design and platform heels within the portals of That Shoe Lady though. Here comfort comes first, with style and beauty ranking a close second. If you love shoes, you could lose yourself for hours here.
Owner, Jessamie Jardim noticed a gaping hole in the marketplace for good quality, comfortable shoes which portray the character and style of the wearer and bring something unique to every look. A quick look around most department stores reveals a lack of originality in the shoe department. Jess found that high heels, the trademark of every female business exec, seemed to need quite a few foot-numbing drinks to prove wearable. Her search for something better soon revealed a wealth of beautifully designed shoes that met her criteria for comfort and durability as well as style, and so That Shoe Lady came about.
Driven by a desire to make a difference in the lives of long-suffering women everywhere, Jess now stocks only tried and tested varieties of footwear. As an added extra, she is open to suggestion and if you know of a particular type of shoe you would like, just say the word and she will source it and import it for you.
A quick glance at her website reveals a mouth-watering variety of shoes and accessories in every shade but grey. New options are added at least once a month and Jess goes out of her way to discover new on-the-rise brands that have not arrived on South African shelves yet.
