  • Let the magic begin

    We launched our site last night and we are thrilled! We set out to create a unique shopping site with an imaginative mix of shoes from the best independent designers. We also wanted it to represent the heart and soul of Ashbury Skies: our free spirit. We did it! Take a look at our site; we think you will agree.

    A huge thank you goes out to Richard and Mark, our web guys who not only executed, but also believed in our vision for Ashbury Skies. Besides being artistic, outside the box thinkers, we found your patience and can-do mind-set really refreshing. For all the times that we sneaked on to the site and commented on things before they were finished, please accept our apologies. And when you arrived in the office in the mornings to dozens of emails that we shot out during the many sleepless nights the past few months, we apologize as well.  We know we drove you mad, but we couldn’t help ourselves.

    Thanks to our indie brands Jeffrey Campbell, Dolce Vita, Madison Harding, Gee’WaWa, Haus of Price, Messeca, and Philip Simon, all who believed in our vision and bent over backwards to get us size nine photo shoot samples for our look book. We know this was a big ask.

    To Yvette, my business partner, you are a super star. Your skill and know-how carried me at times.  Your DNA is in the site and for that, I am thankful.

    We’re off. Welcome to our indie shoe community.

  • The Urban Hiker

    Kevoik by Philip Simon

    We liked the Urban Hiker trend so much that this was the inspiration for our Fall look book. The Philip Simon Kevoik, pictured above, speaks to this trend perfectly.  I found this new line while walking the NY shoe show last month. To me, walking a trade shoe is like walking a flea market. One is always searching for that gem that may or may not be just around the corner. It was a major find when I walked into this booth. This boot is a hiker on heels. Ashbury Skies has a lot in common with Philip Simon as we both launch our debut collections this Fall. Make sure to check out the Kevoik and more from Philip Simon on our site when we launch this August.
