    Default Halle Berry launches new line of ugly shoes‎

    Following in their footsteps: Hollywood actress Halle Berry said it was a 'dream come true' to have her own shoe collection

    It used to be the case that you couldn't really call yourself a celebrity until you had your own fragrance. Now stars are aiming higher - with whole collections of footwear.
    Cheryl Cole recently launched a collection on Stylistpick.com, following in the footsteps of everyone from Natalie Portman to Jay-Z.
    And Halle Berry - who already has her own fragrance - is now throwing her own line of sandals into the mix.
    The '5ths Avenue by Halle Berry' collection, designed for German retailer Deichmann Shoes, comes six months after Cindy Crawford posed with her own range of Deichmann heals.
    The launch of the collection must be a welcome distraction for the actress who was interviewed by the Los Angeles Police Department yesterday over claims her ex-boyfriend pushed their daughter's nanny during an argument.

    Like Crawford, Berry is 45 - and the shoot shows off her enviably toned legs as she slips on her new shoes.
    The film star's spring/summer range of 40 limited edition shoes will boast peep toes with wedge heels, high-heeled sandals with straps and high-heeled sling sandals on wedge heels.
    Berry said it was a 'dream come true' to have her own collection.
    She said: 'Women have always loved shoes. It's like if your hair is not right and your shoes are not right, the woman is not right.
    'If both of them are right, you're pretty much OK.
    'And shoes are a statement. They can be very sexy; they can say something about where you are in the day; they can say what your mood is; they give you a chance to accessorize.
    'And I'm a girl that loves to change my shoes all the time. It's an expression of who you are really. I'm a girl if I find a shoe that I really like I like to get them in all colours. I'm big on that.
    'I would say I'm a nude girl because this goes with everything. You can dress it up and dress it down.
    'I can't think of any girl who wouldn't want her name on a brand of shoes. I think that's pretty cool.

    In her Deichmann commercial, Berry gets so caught up in the shoes and changes of outfit in her dressing room that she is late on a film set.
    She said of the ad: 'I like the concept of it. It really relates to my life and who I am as a person and what I do for a living.
    'And I think there's kind of a fun element to it. And it also speaks to my love of shoes.'

    No hurry: An advert for the collection sees Halle Berry getting so caught up in the shoes and changes of outfit in her dressing room that she is late on a film set


    Admiring her handiwork: Halle Berry shows off her favourite peep-toe wedges at a launch of the shoe collection in Berlin

    'The company's owner Heinrich Deichmann said: 'We are very pleased that Halle Berry is our new partner.
    'She is an internationally renowned artist and a global style icon.'
    The company, which is Europr's largest shoe retailer with more that 50 UK stores has previously signed up the Pussycat Dolls and the Sugababes to promote its shoes.
    Berry's shoes will go on sale in the UK from early March with prices starting at £29.99.

    I like the grey sandals and that grey dress she has on.

    I whole-heartedly agree. Halle is a diabetic. The wrong shoes are that much more detrimental to her health than the average woman. I can't stand plenty of other things about the crazy bitch, but at least she has a smidgen of sense when it comes to her footwear.

    Women are so ridiculous about these goddamned high heels. Podiatrists and Orthopedic surgeons are making a killing off stubborn broads.

    who said they had to be high heels? i love nothing more than super cute shoes with a low-to-mid heel, those are the shoes i live and work in and can walk and even bike in. the only super high heels i have are reserved for going out.
    but these aren't cute. they're boring at best, fug and dated for the most part.

    Different strokes. I personally don't think they look that bad for casual every day wear. But I'm admittedly nowhere near the shoe whore most women (well, of the ones I know, anyway) are. I wear a combination of what's good for my feet, what's most appropriate for whatever activity I'm engaging in (which about 80% of the time is work), and then what looks good on my own feet. Even if it's not the latest thing coming down the red carpet.

    I have no doubt plenty of women would probably die before they'd allow themselves to be seen in what I spend the majority of my waking hours in Klogs - Professional Collections
