We launched Ashbury Skies in San Francisco with great passion in 2011, to bring you the best shoes from today’s independent designers.
Our interactive shopping site offers shoes from indie designers with a unique and modern point of view. Most of our featured brands are much like us, small and committed to contemporary urban looks.
We have always been inspired by the phenomena that occurred in San Francisco in the summer of 1967 when a group of hippies created a counterculture and changed the world. It was about new poetry, new music, new ideas, new thoughts and new ways of being. The intersection of two streets, Haight and Ashbury, became synonymous with this movement. These hippies shaped American life well beyond that summer. They lived gently with great hope and aspiration. Ashbury Skies was founded with the same spirit, to bring together a collection of shoes from indie designers to express their creative freedom.
We are committed to creating an engaging shopping experience. Since we shop at home on our laptops, and on the move with our tablets and smartphones, our site is designed with this in mind. Our shoppers come from all over the world and we are connected by our shared fashion sensibilities and through our screens.
Interacting with you and being authentic is important to us. Our blog and our Facebook and Twitter pages are the pulse of our venture. We believe your feedback makes our site fresh, relevant, and democratic. We welcome your comments through these social networking sites and through our product reviews.
