When Wolverine Worldwide decided to add a women’s collection to its heritage-inspired 1000 Mile label, the 130-year-old men’s boot brand was eager to approach it from a different angle than men’s, and it wasn’t long before Brooklyn-based fashion designer Samantha Pleet made it onto the company’s radar. Known for her whimsical clothing, Wolverine knew Pleet’s mystical-meets-modern design aesthetic would translate perfectly into footwear. Now four seasons in, the latest collection includes five new styles and the design team is already putting together ideas for Spring ’15.
Toms gets a major makeover for the spring season, thanks to interior designer Jonathan Adler. The two have united for a limited-edition collection of shoes and shades stamped with Adler’s signature prints.Launching today, the Correa Sandal, a new silhouette for Toms, and the classic Alpargata retail for $59, while the Kitty, Marco and Lobamba sunglasses range from $160 to $170.
