If there’s one thing that unites everyone here at Gilt.com, it’s shoes. This week brings the return of much-adored designer Sam Edelman to the site, and naturally we couldn’t be more excited! Edelman’s eponymous footwear line (launched in 2004, on the heels of his famous label Sam & Libby) is playful, distinctive, and always in line with the trends…which is why all the footwear obsessives on our staff swear by his shoes.
This sale is packed with essential boots and booties and chic, stash-in-your-bag flats, but what’s really catching our collective eye are the ahead-of-the-curve pointy-toed styles. We’ve been loving the reemergence of this classic footwear style — few shapes lengthen the leg so effortlessly! — and Sam’s designs are right in line with the trend.
The subtle Hamptom Flat ($59, from $110) offers a unique twist on the classic round-toe ballet style, with a cute embossed-python panel at the heel that further sets it apart from the (flat) pack.
The ultra-flattering Portnoy Pump ($59, from $120) also has a great pointed toe, and we’ve got it in three great wear-with-everything finishes: black suede, patent-leather neutral, and patent-leather black. For those looking for something a little more bold, there’s no arguing with the leopard-print calf hair Portnoys — perfect for indulging your inner Sophia Loren.
Raise your hand if you’re feeling the return of the pointy toe as much as we are — and don’t miss out on our amazing Sam Edelman sale, which kicks off February 8 at noon ET on Gilt.com.
