Size inclusivity has reached footwear. Women's accessory brand Loeffler Randall has announced the addition to a U.S. size 12 (EU size 44) to select styles. In a press release, the brand explained that its decision to expand sizing was in response to customer demand.
"We are always looking to offer shoes that are more inclusive of the consumers who want to wear our products," said founder Jessie Randall in the release. "When I started our company almost 15 years ago... with only eight styles in our line, we offered what was then a standard size run of whole and half sizes 6-11."
Randall explained that as the brand grew, she learned that there was a demand for sizing outside of that range, and added sizes 5, 5.5 and 11 to meet consumer needs.
Loeffler Randall will also be launching its first bridal line at the end of this week. The range will include footwear retailing between 195 and 395 dollars, as well as handbags between 250 and 350 dollars.
While the bridal line will launch on May 17, there is already a wait list for the products.
