McClain Barteet, RPh. created Onesole as a
hobby in the back of her pharmacy after buying three of the same shoes
in different colors. She developed the idea through trial and error
with no shoe design or business experience. Now her pharmacy is in the back
of her shoe factory taking a back seat to the phenomenal sales
throughout the world with her patented interchangeable shoe that is
well known for comfort and versatility.
Dominique was featured on ABC's Shark Tank Season 2 Finale pitching
Onesole to the sharks and they all wanted to invest.

Dominique McClain Barteet, RPh,
invented and created the Onesole interchangeable shoe, because of an
idea and need for such a shoe due to her extensive traveling.
She wanted to create a shoe that would be fun, versatile, and
comfortable. The Onesole shoe has evolved into a unique shoe
concept that can be personalized, customized and is ever changing
with the fashion trends easily and affordably. Quick Change
Artist launched a line for the Onesole shoes that feature renowned artists work on the tops for a Signature
Quick Change Artist's Onesole shoe idea
is a 20 year vision that came to fruition in the year 2002. 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
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.

this with no business or fashion education!!
Interview with Founder of Onesole
Gambling on a New Idea
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
Dominique has always liked a challenge and it
looks like the gamble has paid off for her.
