Banana Republic was founded in 1978 by Mel and Patricia Ziegler, originally launched with a distinctive safari theme. In 1983, the brand was acquired by American giant Gap Inc. and received a powerful modernization. Ever since its takeover, the label has gone from strength to strength and continues to product contemporary, fresh and on-point pieces perfect for hi-low dressing. Simple in design yet rich in sumptuous quality, Banana Republic shoes are must-have outfit companions. Featuring colorful ballet flats, elegant pumps, strappy sandals and boots, this range of footwear boasts an inherently feminine flair.
