When Rebecca Barker became proprietor of Rangiora Shoe Lines in June, she was thrilled to be taking on a respected business with a long and loyal clientele.
The iconic shoe store is an independent business that’s been in the heart of Rangiora’s shopping precinct for over five decades, with previous owners Jill and Sandra retiring after 35 years.
Dedicated to sourcing the best in shoes from all over the world, every shoe is a carefully curated product – handpicked and tested for fit, style, quality, detail and, most crucially, comfort.
Shoe labels such as Alfie & Evie; Django & Juliette; Bresley; Minx; Hispanitas; Josef Seibel and Ziera, to name but a few, give customers immediate assurance their feet are in the best possible hands.
Colour trends this summer see shoes splashed in the brightest prints, while accessories, like Briarwood bags in chocolate and gunmetal, team beautifully with linens.
Platform sneakers are very in vogue (thanks to devotees like Trinny Woodall of What Not to Wear) and Rebecca says the platform sneakers from Minx have taken the concept of the casual shoe to a whole new level.
