Musings from the Sole - Oct 30th
My name is Christina and I am one of the team at Timeless Soles! I have a long held love for shoes, and hold in high regard quality and shoes that make you smile, that give you that really happy and confident feeling.
When I first started working, my salary was about NZ$6,000 a year and I was paid monthly (it was my first job!!). I worked in Auckland City and my bus pass took half my salary, and I was only 15 years old so of course this was a huge adventure for me as I lived in the country next to a beach. I remember seeing my first pair of shoes in a ladies store in the City that were so beautiful and different and made me smile that I had to have them. They were about NZ$150 back then and so really almost all the other half of my salary! So I brought them on lay-by and still have them today (they are a little old now!).
I met Fluevogs about 4 years ago from a store in Mt Eden, Auckland (New Zealand). My first visit to purchase my Fluevogs had me walking out the store with 3 pairs! 3 very different pairs, a funky and cool black boot, a model from the KKBB range (Kitschy Kitschy Boom Boom), and a purple suede CBC womens shoe! That was 4 years ago (it is 2015 when I write this) and they are the reason we called our business ‘Timeless Soles’ because they transcend fashion and trends, they are still very cool today and will be tomorrow too!
The comments I receive when I wear my Fluevogs make me smile and if I am going into a particularly tricky and tough meeting, when things are hard, I look at my shoes and smile inside. I’ve been told you need to be confident to wear these, but I don’t always feel that way in myself, however wearing these I have to say just make me feel good – and that gives me confidence!
Smile, enjoy, love life and keep on working it!
