What’s New In Shoes This Spring 2012

Wear Comfort With This Coral Everybody Sandal

Last August while everyone was soaking up the last bit of summer, knowing full well fallwas sneaking around the corner, I was diligently selecting next spring/summer selections for the store.  Customers began purchasing fall and winter shoes and boots, Christmas came and went, which takes us to February 2012.

Customers were still buying boots, wearing their coats, hats, gloves and scarves and I was still in my winter mode.  I notice the UPS truck pull up in front of the store.  The driver pulls out a few cartons, could this be my spring selections starting to arrive?  The anticipation increased as he broungt the cartons in the store.  I sign for the delivery, take out the packing slip and see that it’s the sandals from Steve Madden.  Still a bit surprised, I started opening the cartons and the excitement started mounting, just like Christmas all over again.  I took out the first shoe box and low and behold, my first summer sandal.  How Exciting!

Within that week I received more and more cartons and opened them with the same anticipation.
