Empowering women to wear the shoes they love without pain.
It's such a bummer when we discover a smudge on our brand new shoes or a stain on our favorite high heels. Here are a few simple tricks to clean our high heels.

I just love this time of year! The choices for footwear are endless. Strappy sandals. T-strap block heels. Colorful pumps. Espadrille wedges. Pretty much anything goes!
