Ellie Shoes has partnered with artist and filmmaker Gris Grimly for two new shoes in the Bettie Page Shoes by Ellie collection, in a collaboration brokered by Carmella Johns agency.
The new designs marry the sex appeal of Betty Paige with Grimly’s Gothic-inspired artwork and include a Gris Boot and Gris Mary Jane.
The shoes will be unveiled this week at the MAGIC show in Las Vegas, Nev. where Bettie Page Shoes will also host a meet-and-greet autograph session with Grimly.
“Working with Ellie Shoes has allowed Gris Grimly to translate his unique vision into fashion with this limited edition shoe collection,” says Carmella Johns, president, Carmella Johns and agent for Gris Grimly. “Thousands of fans love and collect his storybooks, fine art and films and now they can own these fabulous shoes.”
The Gris Boot and the Gris Mary Jane will also be sold at the eight Bettie Page Stores across the country.
"I'm really excited about this collaboration as there are so many different subcultures of the genre attached to the Bettie Page name and having a Grimly take on limited edition styles is wickedly perfect,” says Ellen Renger, owner, Ellie Shoes.
