The Real Heels

Lei Chic Your posh peds are a little spoiled.

Just the idea of dressing up your sole sisters in generic shoes has you digging in your high-maintenance (admit it) heels. If it’s not couture you kick it to the curb. Of course, that means every time you pick up a pair you give your budget the boot.

Get your finances back on its feet with the new ALDO RISE collection.

Lei Chic The line is a collaboration between the ALDO and six dynamic designers known for their work in luxury retailers such as Barneys, Open Ceremony, and Bergdorf Goodman. Now, they’re bringing their feathered, striped, platformed, and grommeted glory to a more budget-friendly shoe.

You’ll fall head over heels for JW Anderson’s ankle-strapped stiletto with contrast whip-stitching and faux-ostrich feather detail, Preen’s chunky-heeled cuff front done up in colorful pixelized prints, Mark Faster’s sexy cut-out stiletto in contrasting tones of suede and patent leather, or Libertine’s preppy nautical t-strap with red, white, and blue striped heel.

Lei ChicMost are around $155 dollars with the priciest pairs still coming in at a far-from-couture price of $175.

Making it simple to (stylishly) toe the bottom line.

ALDO RISE’s Spring/Summer collection is available now at ALDO, Ala Moana Center and online (with free shipping and handling for purchases over $75). Want more? Preview the zipper-edged stilettoes, boots, and others styles in the fall collection.
