A Peek At Sarah Jessica Parker's Shoe Line

One of the most beloved fashion icons of our time, Sarah Jessica Parker has brought Sex in the City's Carrie Bradshaw back to life as she launches her much awaited shoe line, SJP by Sarah Jessica Park

One of the most beloved fashion icons of our time, Sarah Jessica Parker has brought Sex in the City's Carrie Bradshaw back to life as she launches her much awaited shoe line, SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. The collection hit the shelves on February 28th and will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom's and nordstrom.com. Unlike the shoes that Carrie Bradshaw spent entire paychecks on, the SJP line offers a more affordable option with styles ranging from $195 to $485. SJP collection also offers a selection of clutch style handbags and a trench coat, so that a woman can be totally put together with SJP when she leaves her house in the morning. The line has been well received proving that the actress has combined shoes and chic successfully, producing a collection of footwear that Carrie Bradshaw would surely be thrilled to wear.

Since the end of Sex in the City, in 2004, SJP has been approached repeatedly to create a line of footwear. Finally she has partnered with George Malkemus, CEO of Manolo Blahnik, Carrie's favorite shoe designer of all time. The two have been friends for years and in fact, SJP approached him regarding a possible business venture in the shoe arena. They pulled their concept from the latter 1970's, a time when they were both living in New York. SJP says, "What I wanted to do is to revisit that single sole that can look so feminine and beautiful and sexy on a foot … to go back to a simpler time..." She designed this line to be versatile and to withstand the test of time.

There are 25 different shoe styles, each one with a specific name chosen by SJP. The line is also very colorful; there are only three styles in black, and two in nude, no brown shoes in this collection, except for a pair of boots. Surprisingly there are no sky high stilettos in this grouping either. According to SJP, "I didn’t want sky-high, because I think other people do them really, really well, and I wanted to show that you can have a shoe that’s not sky-high that is still significant and still feels sexy and powerful and feminine." Although she says she loves them all as each one allows her to feel different when wearing them, there are a few standouts. Below are ten styles from the collection that are closest to the famed fashionista's heart.

10 SJP Wallace Sandal: $250

9 SJP Anna: $345

8 SJP Lady: $350

7 SJP Fawn: $350

6  6. SJP Ina: $355

5 SJP Carrie: $355

4 SJP Pola: $365

3 SJP Diana: $365

2 SJP Etta: $425

1 SJP Alison Boot: $485

The Alison boot is a real show stopper. This is designed for the woman who wants a heel but not in the traditional shoe style. It is named for Alison Benson, the woman who runs SJP's company at HBO. This is a lace up, open toed boot style shoe, and in that way defies both the conventional shoe and the conventional boot. With the open toe this shoe can be worn well into the summer. It has a three and a half inch very slender heel and comes in only one color: luggage. As a side note, this is the only basic brown shoe in the whole collection. In this racy model you will find the signature ribbon trim on the back of the shoe.
