Celebrations with the Great British Business Club in NYC. Creativity is GREAT.

When Save Your Sole expanded into the US market and set up its headquarters in New York City, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) were instrumental in helping us.

We were initially awarded an export grant to help us exhibit at trade shows like FN Platform in Las Vegas and Sole Commerce at the Javits Centre in New York.

We became a member of the British Footwear Association (BFA) through the introductions which then helped us to secure distributor agreements around the world to export our products globally. We also won an award from the charity of the BFA – The Footwear Friends Award to further promote our goods for export.

We attended the Academy Award Party in Los Angeles at the home of the British Consul celebrating with all of the Oscar nominees (with our products in our gift bags!).

In 2015 we were a part of a trade party that travelled to Shanghai China as part of the CREATIVITY is GREAT program to meet with companies and government officials to further promote and grow Save Your Sole in China – which is one of our biggest markets.

And now in New York we are part of the Great British Business Club and work alongside UK Trade & Investment in New York who work to promote British businesses in New York. It is a group of innovative, creative and forward thinking companies and we are proud to be a part of it.

And there is always that moment you look at your shoes and think – how did I do that to the heel? Where did that dirt come from? And why does it look like a dog chewed on my shoe sole! I can’t wear those shoes, and they go back into the closet.

Adele Takes Manhattan

adele madison square gardenAfter a lot of hemming and hawing, debating and discussion, I pulled the trigger to catch Adele’s final performance at Madison Square Garden with a girlfriend.  My ninja like internet skills even allowed me to get the tickets for much less than initially anticipated.  Surplus immediately added to the Jimmy Choo Velvet Mari Heels shoe fund.

The winged eyeliner alone is enough to consider her a hero, but that voice, those lyrics, and straight up soul, make Adele a certified superstar.  Due to the last minute acquisition and my need to save all pennies for Gianvito Rossi Suede Janis High Sandals, our seats certainly weren’t front and center, but I think anyone in attendance can attest that there was not one bad seat in the house.

Starting off with “Hello” and ending with “Rolling in the Deep,” there was not one moment to sit down and rest my feet, though my Aquazzura Amazon Suede Heels could have used an intermission.  Which led me to wonder, what was Adele wearing on her feet?  There’s no way one woman, unless otherwise known as Beyonce, could spend an evening belting out tunes in Sophia Webster Suede Chaira Platform Heels.  If I had one guess, it had to be a pair or Isabel Marant  Leo Eyelet Velvet Flats.  I guess two things will remain a mystery about Adele: her footwear and how on earth she achieve perfect winged eyeliner every. single. time.
