Tell us about your store?
Urban Collective has been at the centre for almost 10 years providing the comfiest and most gorgeous leather shoes to our locals. We mostly specialise in leather shoes made in Portugal and Italy as well as carrying vegan products too. We stock shoes for females and cover all age groups and all occasions and needs – comfort, casual and dress shoes. Right now gorgeous boots are in high demand!
What do you love about your store?
I have a real passion and huge product knowledge as I’ve been working in footwear for 20 years. The team and I absolutely love the product and wear Urban Collective Footwear all year round.
I also love our location, in the heart of Point Cook and with our store being in the Woolworths mall and on Main Street, natural light just floods through the windows, it brings a really positive atmosphere to the whole space.
What motivates you?
Already being an extremely motivated and positive person, I like to make to most of each day although my regular customers definitely keep me motivated.
What’s three words that describe your store?
Fashionable, comfort, versatility.
What are some common questions you get?
A lot of our customers want to know what type and where the leather is from that is used on our shoes – they can’t believe how incredibly soft the leather is.
What do you love about your local community?
We are really lucky to have such as nice and diverse community and I find when everyone comes together at the centre, it’s a really positive atmosphere.
