Oh, say it ain’t so!
Faith shoes announced this afternoon that the company has gone into administration: the above message is currently displayed on the website, although as you can see, branches and concessions will still be trading as normal for the time being.
This is really sad news for shoe lovers: Faith have been a stalwart of the UK high street for a long time now and are the first port of call for many a woman in need of a great pair of party shoes. I’m really hoping the brand can be saved – Shoewawa is reporting that Debenhams may be poised to step in and buy them out – but if they do cease to trade, they will be very sadly missed.
Of course, if you really want to save Faith, I guess a good way to give the brand a boost would be to head out this weekend and buy some of their shoes. Anyone with me?
