Local “Shoe Lady” Celebrates 25 Years at Store

Earlier this month, Peggy Spencer celebrated her 25th year working with shoes at a department store in Iowa.

I was surprised, however, to find the author really did her research, including visiting a podiatrist for some expert advice. As a result, she came away with some pretty handy tips that even an old shoe-shopping pro like myself thought useful. Here’s a taste of what you should be aware of the next time your shopping for that perfect pair of soles, courtesy Rosalie Robles Crowe: (more…)
