THE BACHELORETTE'S KAITLYN AND SHAWN'S CURATED SUMMER COLLECTION


Two people who found love on reality television, now show off their love for shoes, Vancouver and all things Converse, with a brand new summer collection. 
The collection will also support the Covenant House – for every pair of shoes sold, SHOEme.ca will match with a donation of a new pair of shoes to someone in need.

We teamed with Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth from ABC’s The Bachelorette, on a special curated collection - that shares brand new summer styles and supports the Covenant House with matching shoe donations. While the two both reside in Nashville, TN, they visit Kaitlyn’s hometown of Vancouver, BC often, so travel comfort style is essential. 

As they travel the globe for media appearances, launch Shawn’s fitness brand and Kaitlyn’s many style projects, a new shoe collection for all occasions made for the perfect fit. The #Boothstowe, (a new coined name combo) are excited to show off their new collection, here’s what they had to say about it…

THE COLLECTION


WHY ARE YOU EXCITED TO WORK WITH SHOEme.ca TO CURATE THIS COLLECTION?

Kaitlyn: You guys offer such a great variety of shoes. There's a whole range - from comfortable to fashionable. You can’t go wrong.

Shawn: I think people will love the selection - there's something for everyone. 


WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE COVENANT HOUSE AS YOUR CHARITY? 

Shawn: Kaitlyn and I took part in a charity event where we slept out in the streets. I can't say enough about the experience - it's changed my outlook and I support organizations that help the homeless. It's our own small way of making a change.   

Kaitlyn added: The Covenant House is an amazing organization that focuses on homeless youth and we share the same vision for the future.

KAITLYN


WHAT FOOTWEAR TRENDS ARE YOU SEEING THIS SPRING/SUMMER THAT YOU’VE INCORPORATED INTO THIS
COLLECTION?

I love shoes with fringe. I've been seeing a lot of that lately and it’s so retro.


HOW DO YOUR COLLECTIONS SPEAK TO WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU SPEND YOUR TIME? 

My collection touches on all styles of shoes, which is very true to me. I guess I'm all over the map! I enjoy dressing casually, but with my lifestyle, there are times that I need to take it up a notch and dress up. My style is edgy and casual, but sometimes a little glam. I love them all! 


WHICH STYLE ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT AND WHY? 

I'd have to say, Converse. I've always been a chuck wearin' chick. I even love it when people experiment and dress up a Converse sneaker. You can rock them with a cute skirt, ripped jeans or leggings!


HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THIS COLLECTION IN THREE WORDS? 

Edgy, fun and comfortable.


WHICH STYLE FROM SHAWN’S COLLECTION DO YOU LOVE HIM IN? 

Converse all the way!


THERE’S BEEN SOME DEBATE RECENTLY ON THE TOPIC OF ENFORCING WOMEN TO WEAR HEELS IN THE WORKPLACE. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT HEELS BOTH IN TERMS OF LOOK AND FEEL? 

If you can rock them comfortably, then why not! I love the look, for the most part. 


DO YOU THINK WOMEN ARE MOVING AWAY FROM THEM FOR SOMETHING MORE COMFORTABLE? 

Yes, it definitely could be the reason. Women should never have to feel uncomfortable in order to look good and professional in the workplace. 


IF YES, WHY? 

Because as women, we are becoming better and better at setting our limits and standing up for ourselves!

SHAWN


WHAT FOOTWEAR TRENDS ARE YOU SEEING THIS SPRING/SUMMER THAT YOU'VE INCORPORATED INTO THIS COLLECTION?

Converse. The shoes are timeless and you can wear with shorts in the summer. Kaitlyn's got me into them and I'm hooked!


WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A WORKOUT SHOE? 

Comfort is number one. I also look for durability because I do all types of workouts. I need a shoe that can keep up with my hiking, biking, running and lifting weights.


HOW DO YOUR COLLECTIONS SPEAK TO WHO YOU ARE AND HOW YOU SPEND YOUR TIME?

Workout shoes are a big one for me. I'm active and they suit my lifestyle best. I also like a great pair of classic dress shoes. 


WHICH STYLE ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT AND WHY? 

I'd have to say the dress shoes. I love a good dress shoe - and it says a lot about you and your style. 


HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THIS COLLECTION IN THREE WORDS? 

Classic, comfortable and fashionable.


WHICH STYLE FROM KAITLYN’S COLLECTION TO YOU LOVE HER IN? 

Converse. I love her in them because she has the confidence to just rock chucks - and not feel the need to dress up all the time.

THE CHARITY

The two curated collections will be running for 60 days supporting the Covenant House and shoes will be donated to two Covenant House locations, one in Toronto and one in Vancouver.

 

About the Covenant House

Covenant House exists for those young people for whom there is often no one else — young people aged 16 - 25 who have either willingly fled physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse or those who have been forced from their homes. They provide a continuum of care to help young people to exit the streets that includes Outreach, Drop-In Centre, Crisis Program and a long term residential program Rights of Passage. 


Local info: Covenant House Vancouver will have the opportunity to pick the type of shoes that will be the best fit for their youth. Covenant House Vancouver currently has a donor matching all donation made before June 30th so it is a great time to give.
