An Inside Look at Freebird Shoes

June 17, 2016

Happy Friday everyone! If Friday's aren't already the best day, today is my favorite blog & subject -- shoes.

My blogging dreams have officially come true.

I got an email to come visit a shoe store, try them on and take them home. Here's my disclosure that I was given shoes, but not just any shoes, Freebird shoes. She didn't ask me to write a post, post it on Instagram or anything like that, but I LOVE these shoes so much, I'm doing it. You all need to know about these shoes.

PS this is my first "fashion" post, so bare with me peeps.

Freebird was started by a man named Mike who used to work for Steve Madden. Realizing that his brand, Freebird, was a hit, he ventured on his own. Cue the Colorado ties, Mike made his way to Denver to curate the most beautiful, handmade leather shoes and boots around.

Freebird has been selling at places you might recognize like Nordstrom, Revolve, Zappos, Shopbop and Buckle, just to name a few. It was a few years ago when Mike decided to try his hand at retail. Reaching out to his good friend Steve, he asked if he could sell Freebird in the Steve Madden retail shops.

Here's where I came in. I visited the "Steve Madden" Freebird store in Cherry Creek Mall. I have to admit, I had never heard of Freebird before this day. I figured they would be like Steve Madden shoes, which are great, but I haven't worn in a while. But when I walked in, I knew I needed to know them and needed their shoes.

Freebird creates handmade, hand crafted, gorgeous leather boots, sandals, shoes, mules, booties and some bags. Each one is hand done. How amazing is that. Their goal is to recreate the retail shopping experience. Great customer service, great shoes (that last!) and just an overall great feeling when you leave the store, dying to come back. I still haven't told Adam, but we're going back tomorrow so I can get the pair of mules I was drooling over.

Oh, hey men out there, they do your shoes too and they're incredible. Adam, I know what I'm getting you for the next couple birthdays! Let's look at some pictures, shall we?

The best part about this day, besides the gorgeous shoes, was meeting two really amazing Denver bloggers. This blogging community is such an amazing group of woman and I love getting to know more!
