Many of you might know that my business partner is my father.
When I first called him and talked about opening a shoe store he was a little hesitant.
When I told him the big shoe show was in Las Vegas twice a year he became more interested.
My mom hates going to casinos but my dad could play blackjack for days.
So my dad partnered with me and use to go to Vegas with me twice a year.
During one of our visits I decided maybe my dad should actually go to an appointment instead of the tables.
He hit it off with the folks at Sigerson Morrison and we came up with the idea to let him pick a shoe. At the time, you could pick from a book of fabrics and so my dad chose a shoe that became named The Bill. It was a hit and has become a favorite of mine. I mean, doesn’t everyone need a pair of sky blue patent leather heels?
Sad to say, the show is no longer what it use to be and we don’t go to Vegas anymore.
But The Bill lives on.

Why Misha’s? Well, if you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed we are counting down to The Shoe Hive’s tenth anniversary with one of my top 10 favorite shoes each month. We decided it would be cool to feature each pair in one of my top ten favorite places in Old Town, and Misha’s definitely tops the list!
