Hill's Glory Gold designs shoes for the 'boardroom to the red carpet'
Glory Gold, her Lee’s Summit-based premium designer shoes company, features “charming classics” that easily transition from the boardroom to the red carpet, she said.
“At the heart of the brand DNA is elegance and sophistication,” Hill said.
Hill’s venture into the fashion world is partly inspired by her mother, who previously designed apparel for a coat company and regularly sewed Easter and other holiday dresses for her daughters. She later became a home economics teacher, and Hill and her sister would model outfits for her school fashion shows.

If the shoe fits: Glory Gold founder opens first store in OP
With an eye toward growth, Tanise Hill opened her first storefront at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park.
Hill founded Lee’s Summit-based Glory Gold in 2013. It’s a premium designer shoe company that previously relied on website traffic and trade shows to promote its shoes. As the pandemic whittled trade shows and other in-person events, however, Hill re-evaluated her business strategy. Those events might look different moving forward, or they might not return for a while, she said.
