November Merchant of the Month Feature: Charleston Shoe Co.


Hey y’all, we are so excited to be a part of the Wilmington, NC community and more specifically, Lumina Station! Charleston Shoe Co. has stores all over the country including the West Coast, New York, and multiple stores in Florida, but Wilmington kept calling our name.

Our first store in North Carolina opened in Highlands, but we wanted to stick true to our tradition of joining the beach communities and touristy towns. Our shoes were created to not only be a souvenir, but something one could put to great use while on vacation and after! We take great pride in offering affordable, comfortable and versatile shoes for the everyday woman.

Our go-to saying, “Cobblestones-to-Cocktails,” embodies exactly the type of shoes we hand make with our cobblers in Mexico. The soles of our shoes are rubber, dressed with a faux espadrille and/or cork to give them a stylish yet ultra-comfortable cushion for your foot. Then the top of the shoe, called the upper, is made of elastic. You can waltz from work, right to drinks downtown with your bestie.

Not only are the rubber soles and elastic uppers ideal for fitting all women, our shoes are machine washable! Yes, you heard that right… machine washable! You really have nothing to lose when you come try on one of our many styles, because they can be washed over and over again, making them look brand new. We can’t wait to see y’all at Lumina Station!
