Jessie Randall launched Loeffler Randall because she couldn't find shoes that were a reflection of her style: "understated, elegant, effortless." Founded in 2004 by Jessie and her husband, Loeffler Randall can be found in more than 250 retail stores worldwide, including Bergdorf Goodman, Barneys, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Harvey Nichols. Jessie serves on our company's ShopStyle advisory board, spoke on a panel for our Power Your Happy event in NYC, and shared her advice and passions via our Power Your Happy Q&A.
