Kate Bosworth surprised by success of shoe line

Kate Bosworth was surprised by the success of her new shoe line.

The 'Still Alice' star has confessed she was shocked when items from the 10-piece footwear collection began to fly off the shelves with some styles selling out in just a few hours.

She told WWD of her debut collection, which she launched at Nordstrom in Los Angeles this week: "You hope people respond to it. But I didn't have any expectations of it being that quick."

The blonde beauty's capsule collection - which she designed in collaboration with Matisse Footwear - features a range of star-encrusted boots to sporty flatform sandals.

Kate - who sported the $379 'Dawn' shoe during the launch - added she loves trying out different fashion trends in her footwear as it isn't as nerve-wracking as going for a top-to-toe look.

She explained: "Sometimes I think people get a little nervous about wearing a full trend. But if you want to accessorise with a trend, I think it's a little more palatable. If you were to wear the Kelly in the fawn suede, it gives a little bit of a Seventies flair for summer."

Kate previously shared the inspiration behind the line and admitted she was keen to create a "transitional" collection that could take the wearer from day to night.

She said: "I have always been attracted to fashion that is transitional wear, meaning, designs that carry a woman from season to season, from day to night.

"That was a significant part of the thought process for this collection. I wanted to think about footwear that is directional and also comfortable. I like my shoes to have a bit of personality."

The range is available to buy from Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and
