Behind the Design: Chic Dress Sandals


Ever wonder what it's like to design this season's must-have shoes? From trend research to sketches to samples, Danielle Kalish, senior design director, and her team puts their passion for must-have style and comfort into every pair.


Here, Danielle takes us behind the design of three incredibly comfortable and flexible dress sandals, all takes on our iconic Celia block-heeled sandal. With an on-trend sculpted block heel at the just-right height, incredibly flexible comfort technology, and chic versatility, these are the shoes you’ll be wearing for everything on your calendar this season.


Shop Celia Series

“Our style icon. One of THE most comfortable heeled sandals. The Celia is designed with our most flexible outsole, which makes it so easy to wear, plus the angled block heel is the perfect height. I love the padded straps too which are both so comfortable and on-trend. And with five beautiful colors, you can find one that works with everything in your closet.”

“The Cassidy has the same modern block heel and amazing flexibility as the Celia, but with a classic two-piece strap design. The ankle strap is adjustable for the right fit and I also love how it has a zipper on the back that makes it so easy to put on. This one comes in beautiful on-trend colors like a snake print and metallic silver that I love. It’s a great shoe for both the office and a night out.”

“The Captivate is truly a stunning heel. With sparkling rhinestone straps and a knotted detail at the toe, it looks so expensive but is an incredible value. Plus, it’s built on that same angled block heel with amazing flexibility which makes it so easy to walk in and wear. And a cupped heel keeps your foot secure even if you’re dancing all night long. I love this one for weddings and anytime you want to add a little extra sparkle.”
