California Shoes

Here's a list of California shoe makers and manufacturers.

Shoes are more than just something you put on your feet to take a walk. They're a fashion statement, and for some they're even an addiction. When Imelda Marcos passed away, the politician and wife of former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos was remembered for her collection of 2,700 pairs of shoes. Many saw them as symbols of the extravagance of her husband's political reign.

For those who have been poor or grew up during the depression, a pair of shoes was often hand-me-downs. My father will never forget the embarrassment of being told in school that his feet smelled as he wore a pair of shoes that several older brothers had worn. By the time he got the shoes they had holes in them. When he grew up and was able to afford his own, he enjoyed buying shoes more than anything else. Shoes became a symbol pride, prosperity and self-expression. Nice, new shoes made him feel happy.
