HauteLook Launches a Footwear Site


Members-only e-commerce site HauteLook debuted a spinoff today called Sole Society, which sells only shoes. As part of the sign-up process, Sole Society gives all registrants a short quiz that determines their "Style Bio," as indicated by their answers to multiple-choice questions like, "What's your go-to shoe for the office?" and "What 4 words describe your sense of style?" Based on the results, each member then receives a personalized monthly selection of on-trend shoes that fit their "Style Bio" and are priced at $49.95 a pair. (Though there's no monthly obligation.) The site is also launching with an exclusive line of Italian-inspired shoes, Marco Santi, and plans to add further exclusive collections in the near future.
