Per a press release by New York & Company:

Following her recent Spring Collection, Gabrielle Union continues to expand her brand and continued partnership with New York & Company, with the unveiling of her first footwear collection. Made with elevated, high-quality materials, the Gabrielle Union Footwear Collection was designed with comfort and style top of mind, inclusive of increased foam in each shoe’s footbed for extra support.

“I knew I wanted to expand my collection in a new and creative way, and footwear was the natural progression for my line,” Union told Footwear News. “The launch of my very first footwear collection is a personal milestone, and I am excited to offer this new collection to consumers.”

According to the release, fans of Union’s brand can indulge in “a luxe variety of styles across boots, heels, sneakers, and more available in a range of neutral tones and pops of spring colors.” Already available via the New York & Company website, prices for the first drop range from $79.95 – $129.95—but for a limited time, early birds can catch a substantial sale.

The new collection may be themed for spring, but it’s only the first step in Union’s venture into footwear, as she told Footwear News.  “I am eager for what’s to come down the line as I expand the collection with more styles for every season,” she said.
