You want to open a online store or entity one? Ok ,whatever store you open, you need to find a men shoes or women shoes suppliers with nice price and good quality. you can purchase shoe items from local wholesaler on your city or country. or you can use online way to have an order from suppliers abroad, 'cause it will save you more or less 30% cost by doing this.

Method 1
I am not quite familiar with you condition if you are a well-capital owner you can ask for a OEM service from China,India,Thailand, such countries that can provide OEM services. However the service like this will take you at least 50,000 $. And you can buy 5000-10000 pairs, so that cost of every pair of shoes could be lowed to a very benefit lever .
However you should bare the risk of deal and you should have your own legally registered company and a good relationship with your nation's custom.Besides these,and a bunch of people working that,you should control the quality and in time shipment date, you have to wait 2months from sample confirmed to production delivery. Then you have it.. you can find such company agent in alibaba.com,export.com or some other websites.

Method 2
If you are a start-up company, and you want to purchase from abroad then you should abandon the first suggest and try some thing more secured and easier.
I think there are also a lot of websites abroad could provide small lots or small order wholesale , all you need is just a paypal account .
i am not very sure if you want to emphasize men shoes or women shoes, my idea is single-minded operation for your start-up and so that make your store more outstanding and easy remembered. For men shoes store you can try shoepoem.com , it is only doing men shoes business and save you a lot, or you can try menshoemake.net ,it is the one. if you want sell ladies shoes, then ... then you try the same way.

Good luck!!!!
