Agnes Bethel is a Black-owned luxury footwear brand that was founded by husband and wife duo Justice and Leslie Bessent.
The brand specializes in elegant heels for women, which standout from the many other footwear brands due to their unique silhouettes, statement accessories, and bold prints that can instantly elevate any look. The brand currently offers two distinct collections: Homage and Anniversary. The Homage collection honors Diahann Carroll, Dorothy Dandridge, Lena Horne, and Pat Cleveland—four prominent women of color who inspired change through their dedication to their communities and artistry. The Anniversary collection features two vibrant takes on the styles presented in the Homage collection: a bright 'Dorothy' in African Yellow and the 'Pat' in deep red and blue colorways.
