There's A New Shoe in Town

Heather Williams has branched out with her own line adding a bit of Italian flair. She is no stranger to footwear design, honing her design skills at Calvin Klein and Reebok. In 2008, Williams packed her bags and headed to Italy to immerse herself in the art of Italian shoemaking. She wanted to study the artisan and technical craftsmanship of Italian footwear and handbags. By the looks of her first collection she was a perfect student.

Her inspiration came in part from the intricate details of cathedrals that she was surrounded by in Italy. The collection is debuting with 17 styles, with everything from flats to tall boots. Exotic skins, bow embellishments and exposed zippers will make choosing just one pair difficult. This collection has a very edgy and modern feel. Perfect for the chic and sophisticated. She is also launching a handbag collection at the same time.

Available this fall.
