The once handbag only brand Nancy Gonzalez will step into the shoe market. The collection’s availability will be in multiple high-end retail stores, such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman’s, and Neiman Marcus by December 2016. The collection includes sandals, pumps and flats in the brands signature look of exotic skins. Like the bags–the shoes will come in an array of colors and will of course have that signature Nancy Gonzalez trademark style.

Produced in Italy, the price point for the new collection ranges from $795 to over $1300. Although the shoes now are just an introduction to the market, there are plans to create additional shoes with more detail and embellishments. The current shoe styles in the collection are sandals (flat and heeled), mules, and pumps.

One of the great features about the new shoe line is that the Gonzalez brand has its own exotic skin factory, that has been established since Nancy Gonzalez started making handbags in 1998. They did not have to look for a supplier, which essentially helped in being able to price the new shoe line at a more reasonable price, when compared to other brands with similar styles.

If it is one thing Nancy Gonzalez is good at, it is producing top quality crocodile items. The handbags are very nice and fairly priced, considering the fact that the item is an exotic skin. The colors are vibrant and full of life. The shoe collection will be great for shoe enthusiast. The most versatile shoes in the collection would be the Tina crocodile ankle-strap sandal ($1,350) and the Holly crocodile point-toe pump ($1,995). Overall, the collection is a very nice introduction for the Nancy Gonzalez brand and worthy of a try by any shoe lover, especially a shoe lover with an eye for a shoe that will stand out from other shoes.
