Women’s footwear brand, Naturalizer, and couture bridal designer Pnina Tornai, have launched a premiere collection of shoes for weddings and special occasions.  

“We are so excited to launch the Pnina Tornai for Naturalizer shoe collection at Kleinfeld Bridal,” says Marissa Rubinetti, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Kleinfeld Bridal. “The shoe designs are exquisite and are the perfect complement to our Pnina gowns. All uniquely designed with the essence of Pnina style, the shoes will be a sure hit with our brides.” 

The original collection of nine styles includes mules, platform heels and flats in a palette of whites, nudes, metallics, black and Pnina Pink in lace, satin and glitters. Tornai designed the collection with signature details such as bows, crystal embellishments, and lace. Personalization is also part of the collection, with handwritten messages from Tornai on the sole of each shoe. 

“These shoes carry a message of love with every step that my bride takes toward her future with the love of her life,” says Tornai. “At Naturalizer, I found the most professional and talented people in the industry, who have helped me create my beautiful shoe collection with all their knowledge and passion. When I saw the quality of the shoes and felt how comfortable they are, I knew instantly that that was the feeling I wanted to share with my brides around the world. The smile on your face starts at the tips of your toes, and there is no smile more beautiful than that of a happy bride on her wedding day!”
