Like many of today’s designers, Mallory Musante saw a void in the footwear market and took steps to fill it. The Connecticut-based designer searched endlessly for shoes that allowed her to express her personality. After what she calls a bit of “sole-searching”, she enrolled in a 5-day intensive shoe design and construction course, hand-making a pair of her own pumps. As a painter, it was only natural for Mallory to add that artistic touch to her collection, making her shoes the canvas.
The collection officially launched in 2009. Fast forward two years later – Mallory Musante Shoes is now a designer to watch. Her line of uniquely painted shoes consists of low and high-heeled pumps, and is amazingly affordable, retailing from around $100 to $195 for limited-edition styles. Her Fall/Winter collection consisted of 12 distinctive designs, including geometric and animal prints. She recently held her first trunk show at Brooklyn Stone Boutique, for whom she designed an exclusive 4-piece collection for. To shop those styles you have to visit the boutique but you can browse and buy her Fall and Spring collections on the Mallory Musante Shoes website.
