Kathleen and Kristina Cuce founded Cuce Shoes in 2010. A business endeavor that has landed them several spots on HSN, as a result of their dedication and determination. Chatty and Krissy were raised in a family that taught the values of family and community. Their father and mother founded several family restaurants where they were taught the value of a strong work ethic, strong family relationships and building a strong community. These three values are apparent in everything Chatty and Krissy seek out to achieve. In addition to building a successful company that fills a gap in women’s NFL and NHL apparel with cruelty free products, they are also ambassadors for the welfare of so many pups (mostly PitBull Mix) that are suffering from horrific situations and in need of rescue. Chatty and Krissy are literally human angels to many dogs that didn’t have but one last chance. These pups hit the jackpot when these two angels show up. Chatty and her husband Jason, have two pitbull rescues, Rosie and Bubba. Krissy and her husband Rich, have two pitbull rescues, Chaz and Chops. (Bio written by Karen).
