Union’s five year tenue with New York & Company brings on a “natural progression” into shoes.
Stepping into the spring with four new silhouettes and neutral tones, the Gabrielle Union footwear collection hit the internet on March 24th, 2022 followed by the release date of Union’s new movie and a site-wide sale.
Expect to see a solid group of boots, heels, flats, and sneakers for spring and summer that will accommodate Union’s namesake apparel line. According to New York & Company, the range is made with elevated, high-quality (faux leather) materials and you guessed it, designed with comfort and style.
Union’s first apparel collection with New York & Company launched in fall 2017 as part of their multiyear partnership. Since then, the line has proven to be a success, with customers praising the actress for emphasizing positivity and inclusivity. With footwear to round out the product offering to the customers eager to walk in her shoes, Union says the addition to her brand was a “natural progression for my line.”
Let’s take a closer look into Gabrielle Union’s shoe closet.
The collection features square toe boots, puffy mules with contrast stitch details, bare-all strappy sandals with architectural heel, and a chunky loafer playing along with the white-white trend this year sporting a bright blue outsole.

The new Gabrielle Union Footwear Collection, which retails between $79.95 and $129.95, launched last week on nyandcompany.com. However, there is a site-wide sale that is offering the collection 30% OFF a single pair or 40% OFF any 3 pairs or 50% OFF ANY 4 or more pairs (or any item actually). Ironically, New York & Company’s sale incentive does make it “cheaper by the dozen”, so it will be interesting to see the sell through or if the collection will go back to its original pricing soon.
