First Pick Profiles Westerly Handmade Shoes

Ok, let’s admit something: I love shoes! I’ve often seen buying shoes as a way of purchasing the sense of opportunity, of possibility: where will I go and what will I do in these shoes? A way to hold onto something fleeting.

In deciding to put First Pick together, one of our first calls was to Renee MacDonald of Westerly Handmade Shoes, whose work we’ve been following since we were booth neighbours at Shiny Fuzzy Muddy years ago. We love the concept and craftsman (craftswoman)- ship of Westerly Shoes, and we’re sure you will too. Check out our spotlight on Renee and click through to read her interview with Creators Vancouver. Happy Friday!
