Looking for your next pair of favorite shoes? Look no further than 80%20: NYC designer Ce Ce Chin's line of sleek, city-chic women's footwear. Launched in 2005, 80%20 started out as a limited-edition series of hand-painted sneakers designed for Steven Alan, then grew into a full line of sandals, boots and pumps. The now-ubiquitous hidden wedge, an early 80%20 innovation, has cemented Chin's position as a creative leader within the footwear market. The name 80%20 comes from Chin's assertion that we wear 20 percent of our wardrobe 80 percent of the time; with wooden-heeled color-block booties, sleek leather loafers, neon-soled kidskin flatforms, and other one-of-a-kind styles, these shoes are sure to become part of your 20 percent.
