With more than 30 years' experience in the footwear industry, husband-and-wife business team Sam and Libby Edelman know a thing or two about women's shoes. Sam honed his skills working for Ralph Lauren and Candies before co-founding Kenneth Cole Productions. With his wife, he created iconic '80s brand Sam & Libby. They sold the brand to Maxwell Show Co. in 1996 and decided to focus on raising their family. But they couldn't turn their back on footwear entirely. In 2004 they mounted a comeback with the launch of Sam Edelman Shoes.
Their newest design venture quickly became synonymous with luxurious, fashion-forward footwear available at accessible prices. They have flagship stores in some of America's most fashionable locations – like New York's Soho district and North Beverly Drive in Los Angeles – and a thriving online outlet.
Sam Edelman Shoes for Any Occasion
Sam Edelman creates stylish shoes to suit a range of occasions and seasons. Its flats, like slippers and espadrilles, are made for comfort, so they're perfect for busy days spent on your feet. You'll find flat flip-flop style Sam Edelman sandals too, or dressier versions with chunky high heels. If you prefer a narrower heel for more elegant occasions, look to Sam Edelman heels in popular pointed toe and slingback kitten heel styles.
When winter weather rolls around, you'll find Sam Edelman boots for any occasion. Sam Edelman offers tall over-the-knee and riding boots as well as shorter ankle boots and bootie styles. Choose options with snakeskin or leopard prints to show your wild side!
Other Footwear Brands You Might Love
Unlike the other brands, Cole Haan designs contemporary footwear for woman and the men in their lives. Again, the shoes tend to be a bit more expensive than Sam Edelman's offerings brand new, although you can find some bargains among thredUP's pre-loved pairs. Cole Haan's range is also extensive, with classic styles like oxfords, loafers, and ballet flats all executed with the fashion house's trademark flair. Perforations, metallic finishes, and bold buckles help Cole Haan shoes stand out from the pack. Another brand similar is Nine West shoes, they have a similar urban feel that modern women will love.
Step out in style no matter what the occasion, when you choose pre-loved Sam Edelman shoes from thredUP.
