Yes, it’s true (and you heard it from us first!), Club Monaco is launching a collection of shoes for women. With booties, flats, pumps and loafers—or slippers, as Club Monaco calls them—the complete collection will be rolling out in stores through fall. The best part? The shoes are timeless. Though they might be on trend now, these kicks will carry you through the 2014 seasons and beyond.

“I am proud of the quality of the shoe; as well as the versatility. At Club Monaco, we focus on what we believe makes a modern woman’s wardrobe classic—just like our apparel line, our shoes are timeless classics. They can work this season, and still be worn seasons from now,” said Caroline Belhumeur, the senior vice president of women’s design at Club Monaco.

Launched in 1985 by Joe Mimran and Alfred Sung, with a small shop on Toronto’s Queen Street West that still exists today, Club Monaco has spread across the globe throughout its 28 years. Now owned by Polo Ralph Lauren, the brand has continued to maintain its status as a trendy retailer, so footwear was a necessary step in the evolution of Club.

Handcrafted in Italy, Club Monaco’s footwear ranges in price with items as low as $150, reaching up to $350. The collection was made available online today but, before you start shopping, take a look at our favourites that we’ve gathered below.
