Well hello, Forbes!

You know it’s going to be a good day when your morning begins with a mention in one of the country’s most prominent business magazines:



Hourglass Footwear is a small but growing Seattle online shoe company. For about $200 a customer can click on one of five shoe styles, from flats to platform stilettos, and then choose among a few dozen whimsical designs that are applied by hand by one of the company’s 10 artists. Designs have names like Burlesque (an iridescent blue paisley), Red is the New Black (floral with a red background that would befit Lady Gaga), or Kiss the Sky (black graffiti-like floral on a gold background). Hourglass takes special design orders–a popular trend with brides. The owners keep their shoes affordable by buying quality shoes wholesale. They can also repurpose a pair of shoes a customer already owns. They won’t take returns or exchanges on custom orders. But because the designs are hand painted, errors happen, and they will fix them at no cost, except for the shipping.”
