Footwear retailer Aldo has been busy this year collaborating with different designers, including teaming up with Greta Constantine to create floral shoes for their F/W 2011 show and selling the S/S 2011 Denis Gagnon shoe collaboration at the designer’s first stand-alone store in Old Montreal. Their latest collaboration will be with FLARE Magazine to create the limited edition FLARE x ALDO wedge.
FLARE’s fashion director, Elizabeth Cabral, worked with Aldo’s lead designer, Anna Sheldon, to create the shoe which has a four-inch wedge heel, a neon orange insole and a snake-skin print. The collaborations create some hot looking shoes that would work well on the shelves of Aldo stores, and look better then some of the shoes currently in the stores. We just wonder if Aldo will have any more collaborations? We will have to wait to see how the FLARE x ALDO wedge translates into sales.
The shoe will be available online and at select stores on April 27th.
