Aldo may not have been the next fashion name we expected to see on Target’s shelves, but Aldo Product Services (the branded wholesale and private label division that's owned and operated by Aldo Group, who also owns the Aldo shoe brand) will soon be creating a line of shoes to be available at the big-box retailer. The label will be called A+, and the shoes are very neutrals-driven (a chunky, nude ankle bootie, for example, and a wide-strapped black heel). Prices will range from $35 to $49, with boots topping out at $89. The fall collection is comprised of 17 shoe looks for men and women, as well as a few handbag styles.
“Aldo has a strong reputation for designing versatile, on-trend shoes and accessories, and we think our guests will love adding pieces from the A+ collection to their wardrobes this fall,” Stacia Andersen, Target’s SVP of apparel and accessories, said in a statement.
Why bring an Aldo offshoot to Target? The line bridges the price points of two of Target’s longstanding lines, Merona and Mossimo. A+ will make its debut at all Target locations throughout August. Will the line be as A+ as its name? Click through to decide for yourself.
