Artistry of Peru in shoe firm with Austin roots

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN360 DAILY -

Nashville-based shoe com­pany Nisolo will come to Austin for a Thurs­day trunk show to ac­quaint Aus­tinites with the so­cially con­scious brand.

Nisolo shoes, which range from $50 to $160, are made by Peru­vian ar­ti­san shoe­mak­ers. The com­pany’s three founders, in­clud­ing Nick Meyer of Austin, launched the so­cial en­ter­prise in 2011 af­ter work­ing with im­pov­er­ished women in Peru. They no­ticed the high qual­ity footwear be­ing hand­crafted by skilled shoe­mak­ers who had a lim­ited cus­tomer base.

Now Nisolo shoes are sold on­line at nisoloshoes.com and in 23 stores across the U.S. in­clud­ing C. Jane and Crea­tures Bou­tique in Austin.

Nisolo shoes and ac­ces­sories will be avail­able for pur­chase at the trunk show at 3607 Dali Lane from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Re­fresh­ments and hors d’oeu­vres will be served.

The Bo­li­var wedge sells for $138.
