ShoeTease: The Blog
Hi! Welcome to ShoeTease: A Toronto-based shoe blog about shoes & where they take me! I created ShoeTease in 2010 to answer your questions about current shoe trends, shoe accessories, shoe styling, shoe care, foot care & more!
You'll find my shoe blog dedicated to many shoe-specific subjects, such as helping you pair the best shoes & heels with a particular outfit or occasion + how to maintain, fix & care for your favourite footwear with the niftiest gadgets around!
My writing is often ironic & sarcastic. Overly enthusiastic. Often & purposefully, grammatically incorrect. That's just how I roll. Oh, and I love my exclamation marks!! So I hope you enjoy reading!!!
SHOETEASE: The Blogger
Cristina is the name: a UK-born Italian re-living in Canada (confusing much?). It's needless to say (but will say it anyway!) that I'm head-over-heels for shoes & shoe-related products. I believe in styling from the feet up.
As a Paris-trained designer with a passion for shoes & accessories, I was lucky enough to start my shoe design training alongside the immensely talented Manuele Bianchi of Edmundo Castillo & Casbia brands, during our time in Switzerland working for Hugo Boss.
Working on freelance gigs for Paris-based + Italian design labs & a designer stint at Italy's largest fast-fashion company sandwiched in between, I ended up back in Toronto designing & developing private label shoes for the Canadian market.
I am currently making use of my hard-earned communications degree by working predominantly in the social marketing world: blogging about shoes, fashion, accessories & styling. I'm also dedicated to helping small local businesses & bloggers get their SEO groove on.
You can currently find me creating content for ShoeTease & consulting with other brands on all aspects of SEO.
Shoe-tease.com is not affiliated with any brands, companies, products or services other than ShoeTease & Pombons. All opinions (and I have many!) expressed are 100% mine and don't reflect anyone else's (except if they happen to share my same opinion).
Unless otherwise noted, all pictures are owned by me, aka ShoeTease. I also own all ShoeTease t-shirt, tops & product illustrations, designed by yours truly, which you can find in the online shop. Please don't copy them. Or the content of this shoe blog! Credit me over social media by tagging my @shoetease handle & mentioning me in your caption.
Links to items in my posts may sometimes be of the affiliated variety & store cookies for up to 30 days on your computer. If you purchase any product by clicking on an affiliate link, don't worry, it won't cost you anything extra! I may, however, make a tiny commission off of the sale.
I try my best to link to the exact product being showcased, but if not possible, I will make an alternate suggestion. Any product I have received for free will be marked c/o. Sponsored posts will be marked as such within the post content.
Monetizing my shoe blog allows me to continue creating what I hope is interesting & inspiring shoe-related content for my readers, in addition to paying those pesky website services!
