Danielle and Jodie Snyder have been busy.
The founders of Dannijo announced this week they are adding footwear to their thriving collection of jewelry and accessories for spring. Working with Eric Rutberg, of Transparent Footwear Inc., the Snyder sisters will introduce 24 styles, including flats, dress sandals and spring booties starting at $250.
Equipped with a new social-media push (#steponit) and a dose of eclectic accents (Swarovski crystal elements, edgy metals), Dannijo’s designers said they are looking to dress their customer from head to toe.
Here, the sisters reveal their favorite things.
