Paige has introduced its first ever shoe collection, inspired by its Fall ’18 apparel and designed to coordinate with it.
The recently launched footwear line rolled out at eleven Paige locations in North America and on Paige.com, plus through distribution with Nordstrom.
Designers at Paige created the footwear to complement its upcoming fall collection. Shoes in the line are made with high-quality leather and suede and also include extra cushioning for the insole to improve comfort. Each pair also includes a reference to the same nine bar whipstitch that can be found on every pair of Paige jeans.
“I’ve always loved shoes and I love that we will now be able to offer customers everything they need to complete the perfect Paige pair from head to toe,” founder Paige Adams-Geller said in a statement about the new collection.
The Millie, a white leather sneaker in the collection, features zipper detailing directly inspired by Paige’s own Edgemont jeans. The Willa, a Western-inspired Chelsea boot is available in brown leather and black suede, and the London, a pull-on ankle boot with a 3.9-inch heel boasts customizable O-ring hardware.
“When I started Paige, I would always bring in my favorite shoes for inspiration, details, hardware, leather, etc. When we decided to expand into shoes, I jumped at the opportunity to create everything in-house and personally be part of every step of the process,” Adams-Gellar said regarding her involvement in the design stage of the line’s development. “Every last detail is thought out and intentional, just as it is for our clothing designs.”
Adams-Gellar founded Paige Premium Denim in 2005 and opened her first store, Paige, in Los Angeles soon after. Sought after as a fit model for denim, Adams-Gellar decided to put her own designs out into the market, and her brand has since been referred to by UBM Men’s fashion director Tommy Fazio as one of the “masters in fabric, technology [and] comfort” in a recent interview with Rivet.
