Anniversary Countdown: July

Truth be told, I am a bit of an Anglophile. That probably explains my obsession with Emma Hope shoes. I mean, they call their shoes court shoes. I never really knew what it meant but I looked it up today. Here’s what Wikipedia says:

A court shoe (British English), or pump (American English), is a shoe with a low-cut front and usually without a fastening. However, some have an ankle strap. They are usually worn by women, but are still traditional menswear in some formal situations, where the style is sometimes called an opera slipper or patent pump.

How cool is that? One of my first favorites in this series was a pair of Emma Hope boots. As I have mentioned, it is one of the brands that made me want to open a shoe store. I had only found them at The Shoe Box in Richmond and I didn’t want to have to get on I-95 to get my fix.


These shoes were from the first spring collection we had from Emma. I didn’t get a picture, but the bottom of the shoe is barely worn. Most of my Emmas (I put her in the Cher/Madonna category of needing only a first name) have not been worn. It may be irrational, but I am afraid they will be ruined and not able to be replaced. Most of them are works of art, not shoes.

I am happy to announce that this fall Emma Hope is returning to The Shoe Hive. Here is a sneak peek at a few of the styles arriving soon.
