I think this job would be ideal for a Stay-at-Home Parent with a spare bedroom who wants a part-time job that they can do from home and at their own pace.
A shoe repair shop with extra storage space.
It would be nice if you were near San Diego, CA (our HQ) or near Ogden, UT (our warehouse). But anywhere in the USA is fine.
On a monthly basis, my warehouse will forward you all of our shoe returns that are no longer in brand-new condition, and cannot be added back into regular inventory.
The format is Uxxxx, where “x” are numbers. Use the next number available. If the last number used was U1234, then tag the current pair as U1235.
I will give you access to our Shopify.
“This pair shows normal wear at the flexpoint.”
“R shoe L toe has a very light scuff."
If it’s something that can be fixed, do it. Often times, the next step will take care of it.
To get the shoes ready for photographs, and to wow the customer when they open the box.
Note: If the defect is visible in the 2 standard shots from the previous step, i.e. “normal wear at the flexpoint”, you don’t need to take an extra photo.
Store them until they are purchased.
Since this Outlet Store will take up a room in your property, you will be compensated for both Labor and Rent.
Labor: Local Minimum Wage x 125-150%
Rent: Local Market Price x 50-75%
I'm offering slightly below market price because our shoes are less of a hassle than a human tenant.

At left is a typical dress shoe, same size and same Wide width. You can see that it is still 1 or 2 cm longer than ours. Most sleeker dress shoes have a fair amount of unoccupied space in the front. We took advantage of that and used it to give you a wide toebox without looking like it. Dress shoes get even longer if we start looking at chisel-toe and pointy-toe styles. But even though these conventional dress shoes are longer, you still feel cramped because of the heel lift and the fact that their shoes are widest at the ball of the foot. Ours are widest at the toes, as a foot naturally is.
Regarding groundfeel, Chronology's outsole is 4mm thick, with another 4mm of leather and cork between that and your feet. The polyurethane we use for the outsole was selected for durability, which is more important than groundfeel in a shoe like this. The 2-part (polyurethane + leather/cork) design allows for the shoes to be resoled like good dress shoes and unlike most minimalist shoes.
