Known for adding its laidback edge to the latest in footwear trends, BC Footwear initially approached ban.do in 2014 with the idea of collaborating on a shoe collection. A cult favorite of celebrities and consumers for their playful take on tech and hair accessories, ban.do was thrilled with the idea to add their innovative designs to the BC label.

"There could not be a more perfect shoe company for us to pair up with than BC. Our brands are so aligned! Both born in California, we have a similar aesthetic, personality, and lifestyle. This collaboration is filled with all our favorite things: bright colors, cute patterns, and fun!" said ban.do.

Inspired by all things fun with the theme "Put On Your Dancing Shoes," consumers will recognize BC Footwear's unique designs wrapped in bold colors and two of ban.do's signature prints - the Supercute Hearts pattern and a ticket stripe motif.

"The shoes we've created with the team at ban.do immediately make you smile, which we love. Every girl wants to express her fun side, and we have provided her with a quick and easy way to do that," said Sari Ratsula, Queen Bee/President of BC Footwear. She adds, "Ultimately, we are two brands that make very different products, but we serve the same customer. We saw this collaboration as an opportunity to create something that will really blow her away."


The Hip Hip Hooray sandal is available in black/white, aqua/gold, or pink/gold, and retails for $60. The lace up Unicorn shoe is available in light pink stripe, red hearts, or silver metallic, and retails for $70.

The BC Footwear x ban.do collection will be available beginning in April 2015 at bcfootwear.com, Nordstrom, Zappos.com, ShopRuche.com, and a variety of other independent retailers.

About BC Footwear:
Embodying a laid back attitude they've titled "West Coast Cool," BC Footwear transforms classic silhouettes into fresh, eclectic statement pieces. Their shoes are designed for a girl who's unconcerned with "it" brands or trends, but prefers to craft a look that's radically different, spontaneous and unpredictable. The BC girl pulls inspiration from the colorful world around her, pairing vintage with modern, high-fashion with handmade, and global influences with local street style. BC Footwear is available at better department stores, specialty chains, and boutiques.

About ban.do:
ban.do is a Los Angeles-based design house specializing in gifts and accessories that really pack one heck of a stylish punch. In 2008, founder and creative director Jen Gotch began making one-of-a-kind headbands out of her living room. Now ban.do's wide range of accessories has been featured in countless magazines, seen on tons of celebrities, and can be found in stores worldwide. The brand is inspired by all things fun: disco balls, confetti cannons and fizzy cocktails. Don't be surprised to find a collection full of bright colors, irreverent patterns, and lots of sparkle.
