What We Are
Consider the shoe. In the world of clothing, it’s shoes that serve on the front lines, braving pavements and puddles alike, protecting our feet from all that man and nature might throw at them. In a logical world all shoes would be strictly utilitarian, made of rugged materials with stain-proof uppers and flat, grippy soles.
But what fun is logic?
At Barely Practical, we celebrate shoes. Beautiful, glorious shoes. Shoes made of silk and leather and feathers and lace. Shoes with heels that defy gravity, and silhouettes sculpted into shapes that surprise and excite. Whether it’s from Milwaukee or Paris, Target or Saks, an exquisitely crafted shoe is a work of art that transcends all sense of practicality and becomes something magical.
