Happy New Year EGL lovers!
We hope that you’re ready to enter 2017 in style and to help you, we have the perfect shoe solution! EGL-ers… Say hello to Zuzii!
Zuzii is a popular San Fornando, CA-based brand that was recently deemed “The Shoe to Watch!” Known for its simple designs and maximum levels of comfort, Zuzii footwear is able to accomplish something that many brands are unable to successfully do; harmoniously marry great style and sustainability. Offering women’s and kids shoes, Zuzii Footwear has every demographic covered! From suede lace-up oxfords to slip-on loafers in a wide range of colors, you will definitely catch a shoe fetish while shopping with Zuzii.
The brand was founded in 2009 by mother-daughter duo, Ryan and Nickie Campbell, whose overall goal was to create an environmentally-friendly brand that bears a soul and delivers a story to its wearer and the world. Ryan and Nickie have stated, “our goal was to combine the character of vintage color palettes with the lean construction of our footwear to create a nostalgic collection with a contemporary twist.” The look and feel of Zuzii shoes can be described as minimal design meets maximum comfort. Zuzii is making sustainable fashion look amazingly cool and chic, while still keeping price points incredibly low! Who doesn’t love an affordable, functional fashion piece that can be worn by the whole family?
Zuzii Collection prices range from $50 to $150 and all footwear is made to order (keeping both production and waste costs very low on the business side) in the United States… Los Angeles, California, to be exact! Pretty cool, huh?
