I’m surrounded by Jeff Levy on my right and Paul Mayer on my left (what a sandwich!) while reviewing the Paul Mayer Attitudes collection for spring 2015 when we were at the Atlanta shoe Show. These are two people we consider true friends and a brand that ranks amongst the best at the Shoe Spa.
About ten years ago Paul and Jeff conceived a new line of footwear combining fashion and comfort. They set out to create the comfort of a sneaker in fashionable and stylish shoes. What could be more perfect for The Shoe Spa than a comfort shoe that didn’t look like a comfort shoe? Pretty, feminine and a little bit sexy too, but always very light and comfortable. First came their ballerina, but unlike any other ballerina in the footwear industry. It has a padded footbed, a flexible rubber sole much like a driving moc, and a functioning cord that runs through the entire top line that can be adjusted by gently pulling or loosening the cord and making a new bow which provides a customizable fit.
But it was also important for them to broaden the collection and offer more styles and material selections, so their shoes could be worn any time, any place or for any occasion all just depending on your Attitude that day. Nor did they want just a collection of flats, ballerinas and low heels, but a product. A product because of the many special built-in comfort features, extra attention to fit, the outstanding quality, and the use of the finest materials in their shoes. Supple nappas, the richest suedes, soft, not stiff patent leathers plus life-like embossed reptiles and animal prints, glamorous, sparkling fabrics, leathers and mesh are offered for special occasion dressing. Seasonal offerings include all the fashion-right colors and textures, and their shoes are available in hundreds of different color combinations. Just when I think I’ve seen it all there is something new.
Paul does an annual pilgrimage to The Shoe Spa. It’s the first Thursday in March (this year the 5th) when he comes for a Personal Appearance and Trunk Show. This is one of our best events each and every year because he allows our customers to pick their own fabric and custom color combination in many of his styles – it’s like designing your own shoes.
