Wow! What fun walking the red carpet and talking to the press at the Mirror Mirror premiere in LA. I had a Onesole top for the premiere and one for the after party but left the others in the room so had to wear one of each for the red carpet! 

Never a dull moment with Onesoles!

Tales from an inventor

Friday, December 9, 2011 2:54:14 PM America/New_York

THE ONE STOP SHOE: ONESOLE

Hi! I’m Dominique McCalain Barteet, creator of Onesole Shoes, and this is my invention story.

I’m a pharmacist that worked standing 12 hours a day. I needed a comfortable shoe that was also fashionable. So I inveted Onesoles with Soft-Step insoles and interchangeable tops. I traveled extensively and Onesole enabled my luggage to be lighter. I combined fashion, comfort, versatility, and convenience to create Onesole shoes.

Quick Change Artist’s Onesole shoe idea is a 20 year vision that came to fruition in the year 2002. I wanted to create a shoe that would be versatile, fun, economical, and easy for travel. You can virtually have a closet full of different shoes with a couple of our soles and some tops. Each sole has interchangeable tops that fit every sole with just a couple of snaps. This allows you to match any outfit economically and with great comfort. We also have accessories such as t-shirts, hanging collector straps, and bags to collect your different shoe tops. The idea is patented and is constantly expanding every day to fulfill an innovative shoe niche in today’s market.

Dominique McClain Barteet,RPh is a registered pharmacist, who operates a multi million dollar pharmacy in Florida. Her family is from S Carolina and Mississippi, but she lived all over the world from Tokyo to Alaska to Seattle to Illinois to Texas to N Carolina to Charleston, SC and finally settling in Palm Beach. She graduated from The College of Charleston Honors Program and the Medical University of S Carolina with honors. She was the philanthropic chairman for her sorority Chi Omega in college raising thousands of dollars for many charities. She has always been an overachiever from winning Miss American Teenager in N Carolina to joining the U.S.P.A. and playing polo even with a fear of horses. She thought of the shoe concept 20 years ago and started to toy around with it about 5 years ago as a hobby in the back of her pharmacy. It was difficult running the pharmacy and starting a new concept, as well as, a new business and a single mom.. However, with her strong work ethic and determination, along with some very good multi-tasking employees in both businesses they paved the way to success.

Today the Onesole shoes are selling like hotcakes around the world and there is no other product like it in its existence.

Dominique did all of this with no business or fashion education!!

Dominique has always liked a challenge and it looks like the gamble has paid off for her.

Dominique chosen as Palm Beach Achiever of the Year by Palm Beach Women Magazine

Friday, December 9, 2011 2:31:17 PM America/New_York

 

Dominique Barteet was at a trade show a few years ago on behalf of her business venture Onesole, when someone handed her a card. The card was in reference to a TV show, ABC’s Shark Tank, and the holder explained an interest in showcasing Barteet’s unique invention.

“I lost the card,” Barteet explains with a laugh. “I really didn’t take the idea seriously at first… that I could get picked for the show. Even when they called me, I found out that out of 60 people picked, only 30 aired, and I thought to myself ‘no way’. In the beginning, I had that ‘no way’ attitude.”

Despite her initial disbeliefs, there was no denying that Barteet had concocted a savvy idea. From her experience as a pharmacist, Barteet knew the importance of having not only a comfortable shoe, but one that was easy to travel with. In her spare time and through some trial and error, she developed her first prototype of what would eventually become a Onesole shoe.

The name says it all: Onesole offers the option to own a standard comfortable sole along with interchangeable decorative tops, providing consumers with one shoe of many options. Think of it as stylish multi-tasking for your feet. By following satisfied customers, Barteet managed to sell $20,000,000 in four years by word-of-mouth alone. Since the show’s Finale aired, Barteet now finds herself in the whirlwinds of an extremely busy business.

“Since the show aired, everything has taken off, and what is amazing is that it all started as a hobby. I did not take one business class, or shoe design class…I originally did this all for fun. That is the key I think; you need to be interested in what you are doing and you need to have a passion for it.”

With international sales and multiple growth opportunities on the horizon, Barteet has come a long way. Today those original prototypes are now glass encased in her own personal shoe museum, a reminder of just how far Onesole has come. Now, everyone wants to know where Onesole is going.  Ask Barteet and she will explain that her focus for the future of this company is “not to make money, but to become a household name.”

Barteet reminds others that like any success, there is some downside to such rapid growth. “There have been some bumps and some failed working relationships along the way, but you cannot let things like that stop you. You’ve got to keep working and keep moving forward.”  Barteet also urges fellow entrepreneurs to “have fun with everything you do and remember that nothing happens overnight.”

In the beginning, Barteet had no money and no experience- just inspiration. And now, as her business is booming, inspiration is ever present- but from a variety of new sources. Barteet says she reads every single letter that is sent to Onesole. Some of them influence her decisions for the business (like deciding to keep everything made in the United States), while other letters say “thank you.

Barteet recounts countless stories of the people she inadvertently inspired to start a business of their own. People who recognize her in public often stop and explain to her their new plans to go after their own goals and follow their own dreams. For Barteet, this type of widespread inspiration has been the biggest and most pleasant surprise of all. “I did create a product that was successful, but the response from so many people about what I did and how it has inspired them is the most surprising thing to me; it is overwhelming.”

Favorite quote: “Everything happens for a reason.”

Women Make it Work

Dominique Barteet's endorsement:

"When I created Onesole I had no idea it would become so big. My shoe idea started as a hobby in the back of my pharmacy, and became a multi-million dollar business! I created a product that filled a need for a comfortable and versatile shoe that was perfect for travel. Everyone asks: "how did you do it running the pharmacy, and being a single mom?" Well, I don't have the golden recipe and it wasn't overnight. It was dedication, perseverance, and a positive attitude. I became a major multi-tasker doing things to save time like shaving my legs in the car at the stoplights! I encourage others to follow their dreams, because it is a wonderful journey of ups-and-downs that is well worth the feeling of accomplishment in the end."

Changing out shoes with interchangeable tops is literally a snap!


Tina Caronna, a bond broker who lives in Cordova, has about 300 pairs of shoes. In the past when she traveled, she packed a separate suitcase for shoes. Now she packs only two pairs, but is never without the perfect shoes for her outfits. Caronna wears Onesole by Quick Change Artist, shoes with interchangeable tops that snap onto the sole. Band tops come in an endless variety of silk screen prints, or you can snap on strappy tops with metal or enamel ornaments, Swarovski crystal hearts and more. The shoes come in three heel sizes and cost $125 for the lower-heeled style and $140 for the highest one. The price includes one plain band and your choice of two others. Tops bought separately are $12.99 to $29.99. Onesole is the brainchild of Dominique McClain Barteet, a pharmacist who runs a multimillion-dollar pharmacy called Drug Store and More in West Palm Beach. Barteet owned 600 pairs of shoes when she realized most of them were the same shoe style. All she really needed were new tops. She founded the interchangeable shoe business in 2002, and business is booming. "We sell a lot of them," said Jan Durbin, co-owner with Joyce Jennings of Two Girls & a Trunk in Trinity Commons in Cordova, which first started selling them in February. "They were hits right off. People who buy the shoes come back and buy 10 to 15 tops for them." One day recently, the store had Onesole shoppers from Washington, West Virginia and Chicago. Other stores in this area that carry the shoes include Mori Luggage and Gifts in Memphis and Germantown and The Accessory Collection at Laurelwood Shopping Center. You can check for stores in other areas at www.onesole.com. Shoppers can select from a catalog of hundreds of tops, or they can have prints created. Send the company a photo of your pets, grandchildren, etc., and it will put the image on your shoes for $29.99. Send a swatch of clothing and get a print to match. Special orders usually take at least four days, Jennings said. The soles come in black or brown with wedge heels that are 11/2 inches and about 2 inches with a 3-inch chunky heel. There's also a cork style. The bands come in four sizes and are made of a thick, comfortable, stretch foam material (like a diver's suit) bordered in seatbelt material for strength. Snaps are large and sturdy. Foot beds conform to the foot for extra comfort. Caronna said her band tops wash well in shampoo without fading. She notes that feet will sweat under the foam tops in the brunt of summer heat. But that hasn't stopped her from buying 50 tops. "I wouldn't travel without them," said Caronna. To see clients, she may wear a jacket and skirt and 3-inch Onesole with a metal medallion top. For dinner, she may switch to black capris pants and a strappy top with a bright, multi-colored ornament. "Everybody comments on those," she said. "Customers want to try them on." Onesole shoes also come in school emblem prints, the newest of which is the University of Memphis Tigers. The highest heel can also accommodate clog tops, which the store will have for fall.

Shoes are from Two Girls & a Trunk. Our model is Melanie Towery from Colors Agency Inc.

Fashion editor Barbara Bradley can be reached at 529-2370 or bradleybar@commercialappeal.com.

I always pack to many shoes. They make my bag heavy and take up all of the space! Onesole is here to help…just take one shoe that has interchangeable tops to match everything! From rhinestones, leather, monograms, sports teams…I could go on and on, they have it all! Each top snaps securely onto the shoe. They are ultra comfortable and really fun to wear. I am hooked!

THESE STAMPS HAVE SOLE.  If you love shoes, are cramped for space and are a stamp enthusiast, Onesole has a deal for you. The company sells a comfortable, casual sandal with interchangeable tops featuring images from stamps, including the Greetings from America state stamp series. USPS has licensed the images to Onesole. “The tops are selling phenomenally,” says Onesole President and Creator Dominique Barteet. “We can’t believe how loyal people are to their states.” Onesole shoes are available at more than 1,000 stores in the U.S. and Canada.

Change shoes with just the flip of a top

By Marylynne Pitz, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Women who pack for business or pleasure trips know the problem well. How can they limit themselves to two pairs of shoes when they MUST have a sparkling sandal to match a fancy cocktail dress? Dominique Barteet, founder of Quick Change Artist, appears to have the solution. Her Onesole line of open-toed sandals, clogs and strappy shoes for evening come with interchangeable tops made of soft, stretchy neoprene that can be snapped off and on a sandal bottom made of polyurethane or a cork wedge in a flash. Ms. Barteet, 46, a pharmacist who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., realized that she often bought the same basic style of sandal. (She once owned 600 pairs of shoes.) After Chad, her chocolate lab, died two years ago, she customized a computer mouse pad with pictures of him. The mouse pad material was similar to neoprene, the stretchy fabric used to make wet suits for SCUBA divers. From her former husband, who sold boats, Ms. Barteet knew about the power of strong snaps used to keep covers on Isinglass sport fishing boats in 70-mph winds. And that's when her idea for a shoe with interchangeable tops began to fit together. Ms. Barteet decided to create different styles of sandal tops that were made out of neoprene, going so far as to buy a SCUBA wet suit and cutting it up. The tops, which have four snaps sewn inside, snap on and off a dozen different styles of open-toed shoe bottoms that are sandals, clogs or dressy evening sandals. There are even sandal tops embellished with Swarovski crystals. A shoe style known as the duet allows the wearer to create a two-toned effect with red and black or blue and green tops, to cite just two examples. Ms. Barteet started her company six years ago, and it now turns out 400,000 shoes a year. On a recent trip to Dubai, Ms. Barteet packed two pairs of sandals and eight tops. "They go along wherever I go," she said, adding that one of the more popular shoe bases is made of polyurethane because it's so lightweight. Depending on the style, the sandals cost $80 for a shoe suitable for the beach to $109 to $125.

New concept in women's shoe is a snap

Tuesday, December 12, 2006 3:13:16 PM America/New_York

 New Concept in Women’s Shoes is a Snap!  

(West Palm Beach, Fla.) - Convertibles are becoming popular again in South Florida.  This Christmas Onesole Shoes are riding the wave of popularity with the newest and most innovative concept to come along in the shoe industry in quite awhile.  The Onesole concept gives wearers the option of interchangeable tops on comfortable stylish soles.  Every top fits every style shoe and can be changed with a snap.  “The choices are endless for the custom tops, says founder Dominique Barteet, a Florida pharmacist who was tired of having a closet full of shoes she would wear once. 

She recently patented the idea and expanded on the tops with experimentation, so that they could be matched to any outfit or fabric, monogrammed, embellished with crystals, or personalized with photos. The one-of-a-kind tops snap on quickly and allow you to go from dressy to casual in seconds. A Onesole purchase gives the buyer the option of endless tops with one set of soles and now, with the latest advances in technology, you can have your favorite photograph placed on the shoe tops, or match your favorite skirt or handbag to the shoe tops.  “The customized process only takes a day and you can have a custom top that can be changed with a snap for easier travel and endless possibilities,” Barteet said.  Onesole Shoes are currently available for sale on the website and at the factory based in West Palm Beach.  Soon the shoes will appear in boutiques across the country.  For more information you can visit Quick Change Artist atwww.onesole.com or call 561-842-6476.

Sunday, June 4, 2006 8:00:00 PM America/New_York

That’s right: Shoes where you customize the top like a cell phone plate. I guess it was only a matter of time before someone really ran with the idea. These are called Onesole and are made by the company Quick Change Artist. The philosophy here is that the part of most sandals that most people see is the top, so why not make it interchangeable? If you have the soles in various styles (heel height and color), then you can just buy different tops cheaply for a different look. The mostly neoprene shoe tops easily snap on and off.

Some explanation from the Palm Beach, Florida founder Dominique McClain Barteet:

Quick Change Artist’s Onesole shoe idea is a 20 year vision that came to fruition in the year 2002. We wanted to create a shoe that would be versatile, fun, economical, and easy for travel. You can virtually have a closet full of different shoes with a couple of our soles and some tops. Each sole has interchangeable tops that fit every sole with just a couple of snaps. This allows you to match any outfit economically and with great comfort. We also have accessories such as t-shirts, want books, hanging straps, and bags to collect your different shoe tops. Our idea is patented and we are constantly expanding every day to fulfill an innovative shoe niche in today’s market......

It's been a banner year for the University of Florida. The Gators have won a national championship in men's basketball and a Southeastern Conference title in football, and applications, donations and merchandise sales are registering record numbers. Outside the classroom, Gators fans have been snapping up merchandise at a record pace. During the 2005-06 school year, UF took in a $3.2 million in royalties. That's up 43 percent from $2.2 million in 2004-05, according to the Collegiate Licensing Co., which helps more than 200 colleges and conferences manage their licenses.

There is a new way to get more versatility from your shoes -- it's a new kind of shoe called Onesole.

Here's how they work: You buy a base sole and then you pick the top of the shoe and you just snap it on.

Each sole comes with a basic black top and your choice of two other tops. There are different colors and prints and you can even get a custom picture of your pet or your loved one.

The top of the Onesole shoe is made of neoprene, which is what wet suits are made of.

The shoes run from $27 to $100. "It's a good height. You could wear it with shorts, capris, long pants -- I like this," said one woman who tried out the new shoe. Most women who tried them said they are the perfect pair for packing. "I can match up all my outfits to one pair of soles and throw them in the bag and I'm off. I don't have to carry four, five or six pairs of shoes," said Falah Crouch.

 If the Shoe Fits... Don't be shy in adding shoes to your inventory because the demand is great!  Consumers are spending nearly $50 billion on 1.3 billion pairs of shoes a year in the U.S. alone.  (I don't feel so bad now - I only have about 129 pair!) Kaye Davis, Director of Fashion for AmericasMart says, "Shoes are now the number one-selling accessory. You don't have to be a size 0 to buy a cute pair of shoes and get instant gratification.  While heels have reached skyscraper heights, functionality is the name of the game. Women want fashion, but they're all about taking good care of themselves. "It's fashion and function together", Davis says. "You'll see the fashion and the sexy stiletto worn with narrow-legged jeans - but women are looking for comfort." fashionistas will be shying away from pointed toes and will be looking for bigger, clunky heels and round-toed shoes reminiscent of the 70's. The wedge will continue to be "hot"........
