Re-soul is a boutique staple on Ballard Ave., and has provided hip, modern shoes and the other lifestyle trappings to go with for 12 years. Saturday, April 12 marks the launch of their very own, eponymously named, Italian-made shoe line. “I began to notice that some of the products that I knew my customers would love weren’t available from the brands we were currently selling. That’s when I sensed an opportunity for us to seek out and produce our own collection of women’s shoes,” says designer Maggie Burns.
