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.
Classic-chic slip-ons to wear absolutely everywhere this season.
Simultaneously feminine and strong, this funky footwear by 80%20 makes runway-inspired styles accessible to everyday fashionistas. Standouts include waxed linen lace-ups, cowboy booties, tribal-inspired styles, and metallic colorblocked loafers. As for the brand’s signature hidden wedge? Don’t worry, that’s in here too.
With your datebook already filling up for fall, you’ll be in need of a chic pair (or two) of shoes for every outing on the calendar.
