Who are you and what do you do?
Hourglass Footwear is a women-owned and operated company of ten Seattle-area artists and designers who make bold, cutting edge, show-stopping shoes that are one-of-a-kind and 100% unique…each pair is custom hand-painted to order.
We offer five styles–flats, comfort, mid-heels, stilettos, and platforms–or customers can provide their own shoes for us to paint.
Any design on our website can be painted on any shoe style. We’re also well known for our anything-you-can-dream-up custom orders.
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
We’re currently working on a line of vintage, one-of-a-kind designs we’re pretty excited about.
Are you debuting anything new at the winter show?
Pointy flats, by popular demand! They will feature simple designs, and a more affordable price tag.
Is this a full-time business for you?
Sure is. Full-time plus, in fact.
What do your customers love most about your products?
They love how they feel when they wear our shoes! Stylish, original, beautiful (and confident that they won’t see anyone else wearing the exact same pair!).
Also, our clients tell us regularly how much they appreciate the extra level of service we provide. We believe strongly in the importance of great customer service.
