Bell bottoms & hip huggers were all the rage - clothing made even cooler by a fabulous pair of shoes. Shoes I never had because they didn't exist in my very narrow size.
I was raised in the cultural, metropolitan city of Washington, DC in the suburb Vienna, VA... but that didn’t even help. I was surrounded by great style… but nothing that would fit my feet. Clerks would measure my feet, stand up & shake their heads in disbelief. Eventually we found the brown shoes in the adjacent photo, resulting in one of just many of my fashion "DON'T"s. I was six years old with cute dresses, long blonde hair & matching bows and… a pair of ugly brown shoes. Our entire family album is filled with the ugliest shoes ever created. Quite a burden for a budding fashionista!
Then one birthday trip to Paris was the turning point and I returned with a plan: “Women with narrow feet need chic options too...and Voila....LaceyK Shoes was born!"
LaceyK Shoes was born out of necessity & determination. Exceptionally hand-crafted shoes in luxurious exotics, rich leathers, stylish designs with an ideal fit - for women throughout the world with narrow feet - we are no longer neglected and under-served. And finally, the shoe is on the other foot!
Of course, when all my girlfriends saw my designs, they demanded I offer medium widths too... LaceyK Shoes.
