[/caption] The buyers at Pumpz & Co. tell me espadrille sales are up - literally. Their customer is buying a higher heel this year. In the past, the Galleria boutique has had to special order espadrilles in a 2-inch height. This year, 3.5-4 inch heels are selling. Could mean a younger customer is shopping Pumpz, or the usual suspects are willing to rise up for fashion. Either way, Pumpz is thrilled by the sexy shift.
