The Shoe Archives
We believe in a more sustainable fashion industry where quality goods stay in circulation.
We're about the shoes and the creative minds behind them.
Andre Perugia was an innovator. He had a lifelong contract with I. Miller. When we traveled to the company's Carlisle, Pa., factory, he told the workers what he wanted to make, and they said, "Get him out of here," because his ideas were so far out there. He tried cage heels, no heels, under-slung heels, but they never came out in the mainstream then. Perugia was an original. He made all these designs that designers are still influenced by today.
