Entrepreneurs: Dominique McClain Barteet
Dominique McClain Barteet designed OneSole – a shoe with interchangeable looks. The idea of Dominique was developed when she bought the same three pairs of shoes in different colors in the mall. A better way to achieve three different looks without buying three pairs of the same shoe is what pushes her for her product.
OneSole costs between $70 and $80 and it is best known for comfort. The tops range from 12 to 30 US dollars. The shoe shapes are made in Italy, the upper in Palm Beach, Florida.
Dominique McClain Barteet is a pharmacist by profession! She did this business behind her pharmacy and moved her pharmacy to the back end of her shoe factory. Onesole features over 20 sole bases and over 3000 different tops and it is sold in over 80 countries.
