Not a day goes by that I don’t head on over to the big wide Internet world and watch an Ellen DeGeneres video to get my daily dose of giggles. Little known fact: she’s the OG source of my love for women wearing suits, especially when she perfectly pairs them with sneakers. She is, in short, one of my favorite humans. That’s why I’m so excited to share with you all the news of her new footwear line, ED, available at Nordstrom!
The line, which was first announced back in 2015 and was created in partnership with the Camuto Group, features a range of styles, including flats, sandals, and, of course, tons of sneakers. DeGeneres said in a statement,
“They say you have to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes to really know how they feel. Well, now you can literally walk a mile in my shoes, or even further if you choose.”
So, if I put on a pair of Ellen’s ED sneakers, will I immediately feel like a delightful talk show host who regularly befriends celebrities and gets occasional lap dances from Zac Efron? I could get on board with that.
But seriously, y’all, the shoes are hella cute. The low-tops are the perfect fashion sneaker option, the ballet flats feature decorative affirmations like “love,” “smile,” and “laugh” (but in a totally wearable and not-at-all tacky way, you’ll see), and there’s a pair of leather high-tops that I fully intend on buying and wearing all Spring. Everything has the easy, comfortable vibe that echoes Ellen’s style, and with prices ranging from $89 to $110, they fall into the relatively affordable, Converse-esque territory.
Read on to see some of my favorite shoes from the ED Ellen DeGeneres collection!
Do these not look like an awesome alternative to the Adidas Stan Smiths that you see literally everywhere? If the white sneaker isn’t your game (they are admittedly difficult to keep clean), there’s also a gray fabric option.
See what I mean about the affirmations on the toe cap being cute? Just wait until you see the other ones.
Honestly, I think this would look great with every outfit I own. Then again, I don’t really wear dresses all that often, so that could have something to do with the opinion.
I’ll admit that I think this style of shoe is a bit silly, but they’re totally on-trend right now, and they definitely do look comfy, so if this is your style, you do you. They also come in white and caramel.
ED Ellen DeGeneres is available now at Nordstrom stores and on nordstrom.com!
