Our Director, Debbie

Need help discovering a gorgeous new style or finding the perfect fit? When shopping instore at our Kaiapoi boutique, you’ll be assisted by Shoe Therapy Director – and self-professed – shoe fiend Debbie.

Debbie has always been a connoisseur of fabulous shoes. Having spent much of her career running in heels in the corporate world, Debbie decided to follow her bliss in recent years – retraining as a fashion stylist and corporate stylist, with a focus on helping clients develop their personal style while looking – and feeling – amazing.

Specialising in fashion and corporate styling further fuelled Debbie’s obsession, and she soon realised there were limited options available for women seeking a quality range of Australasian designed shoes while enjoying a boutique shopping experience. The concept for Shoe Therapy was born to meet this need, and today Debbie’s North Canterbury-based boutique delights local lovers of shoes in-store, and nationwide throughout New Zealand.

“Who doesn’t love shoes?!” says Debbie. “A great pair of boot, flat or heels can completely transform your look, and how you feel. Plus, shoes always fit!”


Our Range

Don’t let our name fool you – you won’t find a boring orthopaedic rubber sole in sight at Shoe Therapy! While every pair we stock has been hand-selected for quality and comfort, Shoe Therapy focuses on the latest styles for the fashion forward, and classic styles for lovers of timeless chic.

“At Shoe Therapy, we have a gorgeous selection to suit to a wide range of styles, tastes and ages,” says Debbie. “While most of the brands we stock are Australasian, there’s a definite New Zealand design influence in all of the shoes we stock to suit the fashionable yet easy-wearing and relaxed aesthetic of Kiwi women.”

Our range includes shoes and accessories from leading New Zealand and Australian designers including Django & Juliette, Bresley, EOS, Keds, Birkenstock, Lindi Kingi, Saben, Top End, Rollie, Miss Wilson and more.
