ALDO + Target’s New Collab Will Make Your Shoe Dreams Come True
Target and ALDO have announced something BIG: They’re teaming up to launch a new budget-friendly fall line called A+, which will be available to Target shoppers in early September. The collection, with prices ranging from $25 – $60, will feature 17 super stylin’ shoes to rock and a bunch of rad accessories to go along with your new kicks. A+ has all your shoewear basics like flats, boots, lace-ups and dress shoes for women and men (that’s right fellas, they didn’t forget about you!). Accessories include sleek and smart-looking bags that translate well from the office to date night to a night on the town.
Everything from the A+ line looks like high-quality, affordable versions of silhouettes and styles we all know and love from Aldo. The heeled booties have the *perfect* heel height and thickness (a borderline chunky heel is everything). We also spotted an all-black, edgy flat with a couple different textures on it — we’re already dreaming up outfits to wear with these in a couple months.
For the fellas, A+ uses different materials in unexpected combinations, like on the two-toned leather lace-up shoes that your fella could wear on a casual Friday at the office, running through security at the airport and then to a hot date. The line has something for every occasion, it seems, including some seriously dapper-looking dress shoes that are office-ready.
You already know that we’re big fans of basically any designer collab Target throws at us. From the DIY-esque Eddie Borgo collection to the cult-like following of Lilly Pulitzer’s line to Stevie Madden’s shoe line for minis, it’s hard to choose a fave, BUT Target x ALDO might just be that. Scroll through to see some other awesome pieces from A+, including two of our faves: a sparkly flat and a wrapped leather bootie.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
