Betsy King. A Shoe Boutique is a unique shoe shop designed to cater to women with a desire for well-made, stylish shoes that reflect their personal tastes. The styles range from funky and colorful to chic and sophisticated, and all are carefully chosen by proprietress Betsy King to reflect the modern women in Oklahoma City.
“Shoes can really give a woman a feeling of confidence,” King said. “I love seeing clients leave the boutique feeling beautiful and confident. I’m lucky to get to do what I love every day.”
The small boutique, located at 3001 Paseo in the Paseo Arts District, has a warm and inviting atmosphere. King keeps the eclectic styles special by only carrying a size run, thus allowing new product to come in more frequently. “I really like to keep it special and unique,” she said. “I want you to leave know- ing you won’t see your shoe everywhere else.”
And because it’s a small shop, King knows the majority of her customers. “I love that I can get to know my clients, they then become repeat clients and, eventually, friends. We have created a sense of community here, and they trust me and come to me for fashion advice.”
King’s Oklahoma roots have served her well in life and in business. She returned to OKC after a fashion career in New Orleans and Atlanta.
“I was born and raised here, and I grew up with a strong support system that has only grown since opening the shop,” she said.
The boutique is open Tuesday 11 am to 4 pm and Wednesday through Saturday 11 am to 5 pm.
“My shop is my happy place” King said. “I strive to create a fun and welcoming spot to find fabulous shoes.”
