J. Aldridge by Sea of Shoes for Urban Outfitters Holiday Collection

I am excited to announce that the second collection I did for Urban Outfitters is online now!

These pictures were taken by the talented Shannon Sewell as part of a photoshoot we did last week-it was so much fun and Shannon is so sweet. I can't wait to share the rest of the shots!

Thanks for reading! xo Jane

    It’s interesting how you’ve never worn a pair of your urban outfitters shoes on the site. Nor has your mother.

    Gorgeous! I love the look of the black ones, have a kind of archaic cintage feel.
    And you’re right. The photography is so gorgeous! I was thinking its a litle Tim Walker-esque. That black and white shot with your sketches in the corner is particularly nice. You must be so lucky getting to work with all these photographers and organisations!
    I’d like to say a massive thankyou for replying to my email (I’ll send one back but thought I may as well mention it here too.) I really appreciated it that you got back to me so quickly… A great surprise for me!
    Congratulations.

    “Producing leather—whether by chrome/chemical tanning or vegetable tanning—comes with a host of problems. It heavily contributes to global warming, land devastation, environmental pollution, the depletion of valuable natural resources, and water-supply contamination, not to mention the spread of disease and the abuse of billions of animals.
    From start to finish, the amount of energy required to create a leather hide is 20 times greater than what’s used to produce a synthetic material.” (http://www.ecouterre.com/4041/can-leather-be-eco-friendly-ever/)
    If Stella McCartney and Elizabeth Olsen can make shoes which are completely leather-free, then there are no excuses anymore not to do so.

  15. congratulations, they’re absolutely gorgeous! and it’s nice to get a glimpse of the sketches…sweet.
    i love those two-tone brown wedge ankle boots.
    are you getting accustomed to the hair? it’s quite flattering on you. it’s taking me a while to get used to my darker color, too, but i’m very glad i went for it. i look in the mirror and forget i’ve gone darker…a bit of a shock sometimes, but what the heck, it’s fun to change things up!
    anyway, best wishes on continued success as a shoe designer, or whatever your pursuits may be!

    While I think you are extremely talented with styling and have a great eye at shopping and I enjoy your blog,
    I can’t help noticed that your designs are quite similar to other designers. Your last collection was heavily,
    and blatantly “influenced” by Ann Demeulemeester and this time it seems to be Chloe and Chanel. I also wish
    you wore your collections, as another reader commented (They are good enough for us who cannot afford every
    shoe we desire, but not you?). For your next collection, I hope there is more originality just like your
    style. Again, I love and enjoy your blog but this is just disappointing.

    This must be very exciting. The collection looks awesome. Not only are the designs great, but they are marketable to the general public. This is a smart, savvy and overall fabulous collection.
    To those who have posted nasty comments (only a few): Grow up and get over your jealousy.

  96. This reminds me of the scene from The City last week, where Whitney takes her sketches before the buyer at Bergdorf, ready to launch a line and have it carried in stores. That was a no-go. The only difference here is that UO went ahead and put the line through, with obvious improvements made by their artisans.
    I’m surprised how easily this is all coming to Jane though and maybe a little disheartened. I know a lot of women and men, working feverishly to “make it” in fashion, with incredible talent, who’ve logged long hours and debt just for the very thought of having their dreams actualized. All Jane had to do was buy a bunch of shoes and take pictures for her blog. I don’t know, I think I’m just overall, disheartened.

    I agree with a few of the previous comments…I love your blog, I love your style, and most of all, I love your individualism. You are very fashion-forward and I love seeing what you wear. When you consider all of this, both your collections for UO are extremely disappointing. The shoes are simply knockoffs of designer styles that you own and obviously favor, because we have never seen you wear any of your designs. I do like some of your UO shoes, but I honestly don’t want to pay $100+ per pair to have a knockoff collection from your own. Basically, you aren’t “designing” these shoes; you are going in your closet and replicating ones you own. If you are asked to “design” another collection in the future, please use some of your unique style to create new and interesting shoes, because not everyone can pay hundreds of dollars for these like yourself. I am not jealous about this collection or any other of your opportunities; I have no desire to go into the fashion industry myself. I would love to buy some unique, funky designs of yours. Most likely, though, I will wait until these new shoes go on sale, just like the shoes from the last collection did. (Everybody, the studded gladiator is marked down from $98 to $29, and all sizes are in stock! Good deal!)

    Second, I am in need of the little black bowtie shoe as well as that little pink pair! They are perfect. You have done a lovely job. I just posted about the great news on my blog as well, just in case my readers haven’t had the pleasure of visiting your blog yet!

    Ugly, repulsive, trashy, and depressing. Yes, this is a hater, and those shoes are certainly detestable, cheap-looking fakes. Eegads! This is no judgment of you in any other area of your life, since you’re seemingly a decent person, but these shoes are pure hypocrisy. It’s like if Chanel brand-licensed rubber keychains to Claire’s accessories.

  130. I can’t believe some of these comments. You guys are going to give this young woman a serious complex even before she’s old enough to drink. We’re discussing shoes. It’s not like were talking about “high art” here. Don’t be so dire! People need to come back down to earth and stay awhile.

    Wow Jane,I totally know that you’re extremely stylish and creative,but c’mon,I was hoping for more, before seeing the first collection you designed to UO,i was like ‘oh,these are so not original’,and many people thought like me.
    In the second part I thought that you,after reading some bad reviews,would make some more original shoes.Like,pay attention,the satin bow heel in black is SOOOOO chanel,and it in pink is like the loubotin you have.The tall wedge boot reminds me of your dries sneaks and many other shoes I’ve seen,and the tall buckle boot,it’s a not-over the knees copy of your BARNEYS COOP BOOTS,i was hoping for something better.
    But,anyway,the shots for the ad are marvellous,the idea of hanging shoes in a tree is really brilliant.And well,your sketchs are amazing and you should use your hair more like the way you used in those pictures.

    Jane, instead of getting upset about the negative comments people leave on your blog, you should take them to your heart.
    The shoes you designed are, really ,just replicas of the designer’s shoes ( Chloe, Chanel,Demarchelier,).
    And while there’s nothing wrong with that ( a lot of designers do that) you should be honest with your readers and customers and at least say that your designs were “inspired” by the shoes from your own closet.

    I’m sorry, but the suckers-up (most of whom just seem to want to promote their own blogs on the back of sugar coated comments) are just as annoying as the haters.
    Why can people who comment on blogs never take a balanced view of things? Jane is beautiful, well dressed and has an extraordinary sense for fashion. She also has a huge online following and is something of an online celebrity. This is why Urban Outfitters are working with her.
    I’m sure Urban Outfitters specified that the shoes have to be ‘similar’ to the ones Jane wears on the blog in their contract with her, because the whole point of the exercise is obviously to trade off the fame and following of Sea of Shoes, and fans need to feel like what they’re getting is relevant.
    Jane obviously has fashion talent, and I’m sure she could one day be a ‘proper’ shoe designer if she wished, and I’m also sure that if it wasn’t just a ‘celeb promotion’ with UO she could design much better shoes, but here what she is selling is her own brand. Urban Outfitters asked her to design shoes for them because she is famous and has a distinctive look which lots of people admire, not because they were looking for an actual shoe designer for THEIR brand. It’s just like a celebrity clothing line for the online generation.
    I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s stupid to say ‘these are so unoriginal you suck at designing shoes’ because you have to take this for what it is (i.e. celebrity merchandising for the online generation), but also it’s stupid to say ‘OMG Jane you’re suuuuuuuuch a talented designer you’re ammmaaaaazing (btw visit my blog HERE)’ when clearly Ms Aldridge is doing savvy marketing more than actual designing.

    most shoe design is derivative. I think uo calculates that their customer would like an affordable, watered down version of what’s trendy (open toe boot, whatever). it’s not immoral to be mainstream and commercial. and it’s unrealistic to expect anyone but ann demeulemeester to design as well as ann d. even ann d has plenty of unoriginal or mediocre moments. these shoes are ok, probably smart in marketing terms, and jane is 17. all in all, a success imo.

    I have to agree with bJ. I adore the blog and read it every day, but her observation was very astute about selling the Sea of Shoes image. It would be an even better marketing tool to actually wear the shoes. Just look at the enormous sales L.A.M.B. generates with Gwen Stefani wearing her product. It is true there is little originality to the designs, and nepotism has played its part in funding Jane’s budding sense of style. But c’mon – bow ties on shoes? That was done centuries before Chanel. Check your fashion history people. UO aside, the blog is wonderful and has introduced me to a lot in fashion I did not know about. It remains a great source of inspiration.

    Hello !
    I’m French and I don’t speak a good English, so excuse me for the faults.
    I saw your new collection, and I was so excited when I saw the wedge booties that you created.
    I really like shoes, and I absolutely wanted to have these, I think they’re original, very beautiful, I’m fond of the colors, laces, details, they’re all that I like.
    It has been approximately one year since I look at your blog regularly, and you have a very good taste. You inspired me, opened my mind in term of aesthetics, in particular about shoes. I bought balenciaga shoes you published one year ago, which were on sale on Yoox !
    When I saw your new collection, I rushed on Urban Outfitters, but regrettably they don’t deliver in France, and the European site doesn’t sell your shoes… I am really disappointed…
    Nevertheless, I want to congratulate you about your blog, and especially your creativity :)

    Jane – the wedges are to-die-for! I am so getting them, even though Urban Outfitters do not deliver to Israel… You have got such a unique style – you are truly a one-of.
