The lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas feels your recession shoe-aholic pain. She knows her fans can’t afford to run out and buy an expensive new product just because it bares her name. So, she made sure her new line of gladiator style sandals and pumps are affordable– or at least more affordable than the shoe lines of competing pop star shoe-sellers like Gwen Stefani. Fergie’s shoes, available at Nordstrom, are priced online between $90 and $130, while Stefani’s soles can run over $300. Despite her international stardom, Fergie seems eager to price her footwear for the masses. She recently said, “I would feel really irresponsible right now to have a line that was completely out of my fans’ price range.”
And I have to say that I like Fergie’s shoes even more than her singing. Although her choice of all gladiator style sandals and pumps is pretty safe from a marketing perspective, Fergie’s shoes are cute. They’ll last through the gladiator craze thanks to their interesting details, like a cork wedge splashed with playful kindergarten colors in the Zully, my favorite. I also love the eggplant tone of Fergie’s Maxim pump. All in all, Fergie’s shoes are worth considering– and not just because they have her name on them.
