When it comes to shoes, quirky is my middle name.
My first reaction to this Glory Chen shoe was that I had never seen anything like it, which meant I knew that it was special and something that I needed to add to my shoe collection. The creative genius behind this line is Joy Chen, who co-founded the company and named it in honor of her grandmother. Joy strives to achieve a harmonious balance between the beauty of form and the quality of function. It is her ability to achieve this goal so flawlessly that sets her apart in the industry. Glory Chen shoes are now only available at her flagship store in San Fransisco. If you’re ever in the Bay Area and pay a visit to her shop, you won't be disappointed, only inspired.
Everyone knows that if you love a shoe - buy it in every color. But my added advice is don’t buy it right away. Once you really know you love a shoe and it fits well, then make some room in your closet. I certainly love these John Fluevog heels.
My first pair were the blue beauties. This year I’ve worn them to DC to meet the Dalai Lama, and of course of secondary importance, but showing off their versatility, to Las Vegas for market. The silver pair came second, but actually match up with more outfits in my wardrobe. Because they are metallic I wear them more as a shoe to spice up a more casual outfit, typically with an all black look or denim. These shoes are obviously great looking, but also wonderful to walk in due to the well shaped toe box and heel height. Although we are not carrying them in the shop this coming season, I still plan on buying them...thinking I am need of a printed pair!
