Twisted classics. Comfort technology. Stretch. The seven-hour shoe. Gloves for the feet. Sexy, witty, breathable.
Those are some buzzwords footwear designer Eileen Shields uses to describe the next chapter for DKNY’s shoe category. Shields joined Donna Karan’s design team in 1992 to help launch footwear and remained there for more than a decade before leaving to start her own namesake line in 2004, as well as to open a store in Ireland. That line has since been discontinued, and Shields has returned to DKNY as vice president of footwear design.
