Neely Woodson Powell found her cobbler 15 years ago in the mountains of central America. With daughter Gigi in tow, she attended Savannah College of Art & Design to create a shoe line in collaboration with her 4th-generation cobbler. Upon finishing shoe and accessory design courses, she launched her complementary line of hand-sewn shoes and opened Savannah Shoe Co. in May 2010. Soon to follow was her 2nd shop, The Charleston Shoe Co. The wholesale line launched in January 2011 and now our shoes are sold and worn across the country. A third location opened in June 2011 in the new Charleston City Market and our 4th location opened in June 2012 in the Design District in Savannah on Historic Jones Lane.
“My goal is to provide comfortable, versatile, great looking, affordable shoes to women. There are so many women who want to look fabulous, but have constant issues with their feet. I want to remedy that. Shoes do not have to look bad to feel good!! Thank you so much for all your good wishes, warm stories, happy feet, and endless support.” -Neely
