Business Possibility? ~ Shoe store

I`m in somewhat a sad situation.  I`m currently in the military but I have conflicting goals.  On one hand I love my job and I`ve been sent to the best place in the world, Italy. 
The problem is that I`m totally obsessed with shoes.  I`ve been here for just over 3 years and over this time I`ve made friends with the local shoe venders here that always provides me with the latest shoe for exposure.  For the last year and a half I`ve been speaking to my friends about the idea of opening a shoe store in the states.  The location that I wanted was my small home town.  Reasons because the item isn`t really offered except at stores like WalMart or clothing stores.  My approach to this was to offer ladies dress shoes and matching accesories. 
The shoes that we have in the states are basicly Italy`s shoes from the year before.  Is this a good idea?  I`m open to suggestions.
