L.A. retailer extraordinaire Elyse Walker is launching her own line of shoes in September.

Manufactured in Spain, Italy and Brazil, the collection ($375 to $995) includes classic shapes, sunny colors (turquoise, olive, coral, tan and more) and some fringe.

Specific styles include pony and suede espadrilles, suede booties with ankle fringe and the perfect pointy-toed flat.

“I feel that there are never enough styles to choose from, especially in a lower heel height. I am going to take all of these things I have learned throughout the years into consideration for my collection. My blood is pumping with ideas and colors and shoe lasts. I dream shoes and have been for over 3 decades,” Walker said in a statement.

Walker's roots in the shoe business run deep. Her father, Larry Feder, was a shoe manufacturer and her mother, Barbara Feder, a retailer who launched Capretto shoes in Scarsdale, N.Y. The Feders will handle the importing and shipping of the new collection, with Walker sourcing and designing. 

The line, called Elyse Walker Los Angeles, will launch at Elyse Walker’s Pacific Palisades boutique and

The line will also be sold at Neiman Marcus and select boutiques nationwide.
