Shoe blogs and shoe bloggers are often quoted when fashion and trend reporters need just the right gem of wisdom to add flavor to a fashion article. When shoes marketers develop a customer strategy online, in print materials, or elsewhere, the right quote can attract attention and become a memorable mantra for fashionistas.
