The original interchangeable shoe is a revolutionary idea that has thousands of tops that can change on one sole & known for its super comfort!

Tell us about your business.

I created this business in the back of my pharmacy as a hobby and now my pharmacy is in my shoe factory. The onesole shoe came about from my love of shoes and travel. I created a shoe that was comfortable, fun, and made travel easy. You can change the tops quickly and easily with a snap creating casual to dressy looks in a snap. You dont need to pack shoes..just wear your onesoles and pack a handful of tops. I have sold over 1 million pair of shoes and 5 million tops in less than 10 years of business. Onesole gained international recognition when it was featured as the season finale on ABC's Shark Tank reality show. The investors wanted to take onesole overseas, but I am still making it in Palm Beach Fl. Onesole is now sold in over 80 countries and still growing exponentially.

What makes your business stand out?

Onesole is a revolutionary shoe idea and the pioneer for interchangeable fashion that is fun and creative
