If you're a footwear fiend who rejoiced at the news that multi-hyphenate extraordinaire Elyse Walker was set to debut her very own line of walkable steppers, we hope your wallet's in a good mood. The LA stylist's Cali-inspired collection is now shoppable in stores and online this very minute, with more styles slated to drop now through the summer.
"I wanted to create wearable, comfortable shoes that can work for the every-day California woman," Walker tells us about her range of day-to-night flats, espadrilles, fringe booties, sling-backs and pumps. "I chose colors and patterns like the satik—which I love—because to me it just goes perfectly with the laid-back California beach culture that we are accustomed to. Ultimately, I'm designing for the woman who's chic without taking herself too seriously."
The shoe designer gave us an exclusive sneak peek of her latest collection that's expected to hit her Pacific Palisades boutique and online retailers—including her own e-shop, Forward. From the above Sable heels ($575) to a very summer-ready tie-dye update to Walker's espadrille flats, see more after the jump.
