To our customers who voted us Platinum Choice again, I personally want to say '"THANK YOU." The relationships we've built over the last 20 years is truly appreciated and not taken lightly. There is nothing more rewarding than someone telling us that since they purchased the right shoe or the right orthotic, their feet don't hurt anymore. Many people have just learned to live with foot pain, when they truly do have an option. Every foot is different and there is never a "one size fits all" mentality. When it comes to shoes, we want our strengths to be in men's work and ladies' comfort. We want comfort shoes for the women of today that are fashion right. We know there is a tremendous void in the market for that category.
The number one thing that sets Shoe Stop apart from other shoe stores is the relationship between our sales associates and customers. We offer product knowledge and strive for service with a servant's heart. If the customer wins, we all win.
We will continue to search out new brands and find the fashion right product for the Owensboro market and deliver these to you at prices that will remain competitive. We have worked hard to intentionally develop a base of brands that can't be found in every shoe store you walk into. Brands that continue to grow are Brooks, Chaco, Birkenstock, Vionic and New Balance, as well as work shoe brands like Timberland Pro, Keen, Reebok and Thoroughgood.
New brands being developed are Cole Hahn and Olukai, as well as Sofft and On Running. But the newest trend coming down the pike is ATHLEISURE. These are basically casual shoes on athletic bottoms. If you can, imagine distressed canvas lace ups and slip-ons, as well as burnished leathers, lots of colors on vulcanized outsoles and athletic outsoles with superior support. Dress shoes continue to decline and everything is evolving to much more casual. You will find that athleisure will influence everything from boat shoes to boots and sandals and you will see this trend in many colors and prints. It's all about putting an athletic outsole on every shoe in your wardrobe. Athleisure is here to stay for a while, they are easy to wear and it's something that everyone doesn't have in their closet. This new category of footwear is for the ageless and will be important for men, women and kids.
To our customers who voted us Platinum Choice, I want to express my true appreciation for this honor. This is very rewarding to me as well as the entire staff at Shoe Stop.
I also want to extend a sincere thank you to all the associates on the Shoe Stop team. It takes everyone from the front door to the back to receive this recognition. I especially want to thank our management team: Julie Mcdonald, Tara Nelson Thomas (TNT, as we call her) Chris Thomas, Greg Smith, Sarah Reeves and Cecelia Cox, who runs the Clinic. I'm proud of all of you. You can have the best product in the world, but you need the right people sharing the message to be successful.
