Gwen Hurt has always had a love for shoes. “As a kid, I would say, ‘God I know you’re listening. One day I want to have as much food as I want and shoes in every color.’” At 13, Hurt purchased her first pair of shoes with money she earned from her summer job. “I vividly remember the first pair that I purchased,” she says. “They were gold, closed-toe with kitten heels. I had to buy from the clearance rack, but I loved those shoes.” This purchase held a deeper meaning for Hurt, who was being raised in a single-parent household of six, as she and her siblings were each gifted a single pair of shoes for the whole year. “I look back fondly on that purchase because up until that point, we mostly had second-hand shoes.” Years later, Hurt’s love of shoes and nose for business would collide into a successful company: Shoe Crazy Wine.
