With the seemingly endless footwear options out there, designer shoe collaborations keep things interesting. When your favorite designers team up with established brands, shoe lovers everywhere score big. These 7 cool collaborations have us reaching for our credit cards!
1. Milly X Sperry
I’m all about keeping my feet comfy during lazy weekends, so this designer shoe collaboration made my toes rejoice. These adorable sneakers and boat shoes are just right for a shopping trip or movie night. Meanwhile, the floral and rope patterns are bold and fresh (vibrant prints are a Milly-must, after all). Though you’ll have to drop $90 on a pair of sneakers or $125 on boat shoes at sperrytopsider.com, it’ll be a splurge you’ll never regret. I can’t wait to wear mine with a blazer and skinnies.
2. Dannijo X Matt Bernson
What happens when a fab footwear brand pairs up with jewelry company Dannijo? Pure embellished magic. You can pick up a pair of stylish Mary Janes –perfect for date night– for $238 or a pair of embellished booties for $325 on up. Sure, they’re major splurge pieces, but they’re at the top of my Christmas wish list! Check ‘em out at shopbop.com.
3. Coach X Frye
Does this collaboration even need an explanation? If you’re a fan of Frye’s supple leather boots and Coach’s signature designs, these boots are must-haves for fall and winter. Prices range from $398 to a whopping $1,863 at coach.com, so start saving up now.
4. Christian Siriano X Payless
Project Runway winner Christian Siriano’s shoe collaboration with Payless at payless.com is a show-stopper! The super affordable price points don’t hurt, either! You can expect lots of classy snakeskin prints and office-appropriate black. So sexy!
5. Marimekko X Converse
Last year, the Marimekko x Converse shoe collaboration took the fashion blogs by storm. And they’re no less funky chic this year –but they are on sale over at usstore.marimekko.com. The Finnish design house is known for its notice-me patterns and haute hues. Paired with comfy Converse, they’ll soon be your morning class staples.
6. Pamela Love X Nine West
Pamela Love x Nine West at ninewest.com features only one $299 item, but it’s a sure shoe score! A bit bohemian with a heavy dose of cowgirl chic thrown into the mix, these boots were made for walking. Leave it to a jewelry designer to bring a downtown feel to country kicks.
7. Hermes X Vans
Earlier this year, I caught wind of television host Robert Verdi’s one-of-a-kind Vans. Crafted using Hermes scarves, they’re undeniably gorg. Too bad that they’re not actually available for purchase, but you can still read about ‘em at racked.com. Are you swooning over these shoes yet?
These are 7 designer shoe collaborations my feet adore. Which ones are your faves? Do you have any of your own picks to add?
