Until the day when society accepts the naked parading of feet of all ages, footwear will remain a social must. Adhere to societal norms in style with today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of shoes and accessories at Amy’s Shoes, with locations in Rocky River and Woodmere.
Amy of Amy’s Shoes curates her collection of footwear by relying upon her veteran grasp of style, comfort, and real-world versatility. Her collection ranges from casual weekend flats to tough office pumps to glitzy evening heels. Neutrals bloom in time for spring with the Farah by Luxury Rebel—a buff-colored, lace-up flat with strappy cut-out details ($100)—and vibrant tones make their mark on the Paese by Bacio61—a white ballet flat splashed with a blue Rorschach-style pattern ($115). Alternatively, Miz Mooz’s Hype—an ivory ankle-strapped sandal ($109)—bridges the seasons and rain puddles with a thick, rivet-laden heel and an inherent disdain for sunburnt toes.
Doing more than putting shoes on parade, Amy's Shoes allows shoppers to engage with products and persons without hesitation. The store's canine mascot Vader, a cuddly pug, welcomes all guests at the door, and then swiftly directs roaming hunters in the direction of shoes, shoe inserts, shoe- and boot-protector sprays, and a variety of leg wear.
As her own heels left their mark all over the world throughout her many trips as a stock-options trader and commercial realtor, Amy Puchowicz was preoccupied with one thing: the sheer variety of stylish shoes and the dearth of stores to sell them. So, after kicking off her business socks, Amy founded her eponymous boutique in 2007, stocking its shelves with upscale footwear to suit all occasions. Both locations feature a revolving collection of top designers such as Betsey Johnson, Beverly Feldman, and Farylrobin, and Amy employs only avid shoe-lovers to help each slipper to find its perfect match before midnight, when it turns back into a chariot's spare tire.
