Scroll through the commentary on Eloquii's Facebook page and a clear trend begins to emerge. Between the gushing comments about its stellar customer service
and on-trend clothes, one little word consistently pops up. “I love those shoes!” exclaims one person. “Where can we buy those shoes?” another asks. “You've got to make a shoe line!” demands another enthusiastic customer. Well, ask and you'll receive. Eloquii has launched its first shoe collection — and it's right out of your footwear fantasies.
The 24-piece assortment is filled with options that echo Eloquii's aesthetic; a mix of trendy styles like leopard-print calf hair flats and snakeskin lace-up heels, as well as timeless pieces like classic black leather d'Orsay pumps. But aside from the stunning designs (available sizes 7 to 12), all of the shoes have been crafted to be 30% wider than normal-width styles, the boots have a 19-inch circumference (plus extra stretch), and every insole has been padded for added comfort and support. With the entire collection ringing in from $70 to $200, you can easily add a pair to your cart the next time you're shopping the site.
As Eloquii always seems to lead the plus-size pack
in both style and customer service
, an evolution to include shoes seems only natural. To learn more about this big step forward, we sat down to chat with these design Darwins; specifically, CEO Mariah Chase and VP of merchandising Julie Carnevale.
