The Shoe Community
Are you confident in your shoe brand concept, but feeling disconnected from other shoe brand founders?
The Shoe Community is an online space where shoe start-ups and small shoe brand founders help solve each others’ problems.
Enjoy the confidence you feel in your brand decisions when you have a community of shoe brand founders to support you every step of the way!
Who is The Shoe Community for?
Shoe brand founders at any stage – from start-ups at concept phase to established businesses.
What do I get when I join The Shoe Community?
The Shoe Community is an invaluable resource I found shortly after I decided to step outside of my box and found a footwear brand for extended women’s sizes. Susannah is knowledgeable, friendly, and creates great content for startup founders. The community members are also friendly and share a sense of camaraderie. Through the Shoe Community, I located my first partner factory and gained great tips for my first crowdfunding campaign, during which I raised $8,000. Susannah Davda and the Shoe Community will always be a part of Etta Grove’s history. Thank you.

I had a really good experience with The Shoe Community, Susannah is a wealth of information. It was so refreshing to have an expert who not only has knowledge about the design aspects of shoes, but with marketing, sales, branding, and much more. My only regret is not knowing about The Shoe Community sooner!

You have made a process which at first seemed sooooo unachievable a reality and allowed me to see it to fruition and I am only half way there. I can’t thank you enough and I wish for you to keep up the amazing work you are doing.

[on The Shoe Community masterclasses] Really interesting to hear from successful shoe founders and it’s made interactive even if you cannot make it live.
[on the ‘How Much Does it Cost to Start a Shoe Brand?’ masterclass] I got down about three pages of notes so it was definitely very very useful! It was great to hear from you both and I logged out feeling very inspired!
[on the ‘How Much Does it Cost to Start a Shoe Brand?’ masterclass] All very interesting. Thanks again for a very insightful presentation.
[on the ‘How Much Does it Cost to Start a Shoe Brand?’ masterclass] Enjoyed watching this. Great that Andrea was so open about costs/challenges she faced. Nice summary checklist – reminded me about legal fees! Thanks for sharing!
The masterclass was great and it was a good way for me to understand the level of investment involved. The class gave me the perspective I needed to understand what is involved and the steps and commitment required to launch a shoe brand.
