My Shoe Café is the creation of 26-year-old Bethesda native, Nina Kimmel.

My Shoe Café is a combination of Nina’s love of fashion shoes and a passion she developed for cafes while traveling in Europe as a child. As early as 8 years old she had the opportunity to accompany her parents to the fashion centers of Milan, Paris, Madrid and London and her favorite activity when in these cities was to look at, try on and buy shoes. At 16 Nina’s personal shoe collection had grown to 200 pairs.

Nina graduated UMD in 2006. Her mother’s graduation present was to take her to a designer shoe store and buy her 10 pair of shoes. Unable to visualize a well-paying career in the fashion world however, Nina planned to follow in her mother’s footsteps and becoming a dentist.

Her career plans changed when Nina decided to help her mother by taking over the business management of her struggling dental practice. Within two years she had doubled the number of staff, hired five new dentists and increased the annual revenue from one million to two. In this period, the practice gained notoriety for cosmetic dentistry and is now ranked as one of the best in the country.

Now, four years later Nina will pursue her true passion. Sporting the slogan “Where sole mates are made…”, My Shoe Café is the first custom shoe store of its kind in the north eastern USA.
