Living in Portland: Switch Shoes in Multnomah Village
I’ve been frequenting the marvelous, locally-owned Switch Shoes for quite some time. For one, it’s easy walking distance from my house. Even if it weren’t, though, they have lovely shoes, and the owners are even more enthusiastic about footwear than I. On First Friday this month, my wonderful roommate and I were in for a while, bought some shoes, and appreciated once again the eclectic selection and perfect combination of shoes, live music, and wine that makes Switch one our favorite First Friday destinations.
I snapped a few pictures with their permission. These don’t begin to do justice to the array of cool things they have, and indeed seem more calculated to show off the spring-like colors and their liberal use of cut flowers in the shop. See the shop for yourself.
One of the things I love about Switch, besides the shoes, are the lime green shelves and the rows and rows of color that great you when you walk in.
They carry a variety of accessories, including both a few locally-made products and hard-to-find pieces by some very unique designers. We were thrilled to see that they are now carrying Espe accessories–from our neighbor to the north.
I hope that they are in business for a long, long time, so do check them out.
