How Can You Help Support Founders Today? →

Founder Feature: Alexa Buckley

We’re experiencing a revolution in sizing in women’s fashion, and Alexa Buckley of Margaux has jumped in feet-first. With Margaux’s online Meet Your Match quiz, you can determine your actual perfect fit in shoes, along with guidance on your best style.

Margaux’s line of footwear is made in Spain in a family-run factory, allowing for laser-focused attention to fit, including customization for offbeat feet. Shoes are sold online and in a variety of retailers nationwide.

So Alexa must have a background in fashion and design, right? Or an MBA with aspirations to get into niche fashion? Um, how about a bachelor’s degree in history from Harvard. She didn’t follow a traditional path to founding a women’s shoe company, perhaps, but Alexa understands what every woman who has spent a long day (even if that’s just an hour) in ill-fitting shoes knows. Comfortable feet make all the difference!

Alexa told Stephanie Schomer of Entrepreneur, “We had witnessed the shoe shuffle -- women put on a pair of shoes to take them where they’re going, and then carry another with them to change into when they arrive. It’s inconvenient and outdated. The modern woman is frankly too busy for this. There should be a pair of shoes you put on in the morning and makes you feel beautiful and you can run around in it.”

And with Margaux, now there is!
