“It’s the same trends and the same inspirations as Sam Edelman, but my line is designed for the woman on the go,” said Libby Edelman, as she described her Spring 2010 shoe line to me. I made a trip to Dillard’s to see and interview her husband Sam, and to my great fortune, I also had the pleasure of meeting with Libby.
“Would you say Sam’s customers are the daughters and your customers are the mothers?” I asked. “Well, I’ve seen both mothers and daughters buy Sam’s shoes and both buy my shoes, but most of my customers are no longer staying out all night at night clubs,” she laughed.
Upon glancing at the Libby Edelman Spring 2010 shoe line, it’s apparent her shoes complement the lifestyle of today’s busy, modern woman. I am especially impressed with her Bani gladiator which features trendy embellishment and a low wedge for maximum comfort. CLICK HERE to view the Libby Edelman Spring 2010 Collection.

With a warm personality and a hypnotically, endearing energy about her, one gets the sense that Libby invests time into getting to know her customer. “I love blogging,” Libby confessed as we turned our conversation to social media. She has over 2,000 fans on Facebook and actively expresses her love for food, food television shows and recipes on her Facebook wall. She also actively tweets and shares her photography on her website: http://LibbyEdelman.com.
The Libby Edelman Fall 2010 line promises biker-inspired looks. “Very rock and roll. Very Isabel Marant,” said Libby. She described one of her favorite fall boots as an over-the-knee boot with built in elastic for great mobility. While over-the-knee boots offer great sex appeal, it often comes in the form of constriction, but with Libby’s elastic-designed over-the-knee-boot, a busy woman can run errands and run after her toddler while remaining stylish.
