Ella Shoes Giveaway: Enter to Win $600 in Shoesby
There’s a warm fuzzy feeling you get when you visit a restaurant with a caring chef who uses the very best ingredients, he or she takes the time to tell you what went into the cooking process, and they beautifully present a delicious meal. You can tell when someone takes pride in what they do and has a passion for it. I got that same feeling when John and I visited Ella Shoes and met co-owner Jenny Rodriguez last fall.
Jenny, who runs the business with her husband Jorge, personally walked me through the entire store to show me their styles — from sandals, boots and pillowy walking shoes to the most piercing stilettos — and she could tell me about every shoemaker, the type of material used, the process of how they were hand crafted, and which styles were even made from recycled material. The shoes I ended up purchasing also have a fully detailed sustainability report available online.
Jorge’s family has been in the shoe business for a long time, and he joined in at age 14. Originally from the Dominican Republic, his father manufactured of footwear and imported popular European brands, particularly from Spain. Jenny, originally from Cuba, met Jorge in the Dominican Republic. The couple married in 1996 and honeymooned in Canada, where they fell in love with the West Coast and emigrated in 2009 with their four children, calling Vancouver home. As they began looking at local business opportunities they saw a need for affordable fashion choices in quality footwear.
Ella Shoes first opened their flagship location on south Granville Street as well as a smaller store in Park Royal Mall in West Vancouver in 2010. Their downtown location opened in 2012 and in the summer of 2014 they opened a new location in Metropolis at Metrotown. You can visit them today at 640 Granville, between Georgia and Dunsmuir, or at Metrotown.
Ella Shoes has a simple goal: To operate beautiful boutiques that provide the very best in European footwear designs and first class service in store and online.
The El Naturalista shoes I picked up in the fall have turned out to be the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn. They look good with jeans, with a dress, and my feet feel great even after I take them through the trails of Stanley Park for 3 hours. I love them so much that John even got me a gift card to Ella for my birthday last week.
