We’ve been around for a few decades now, so we know quality, comfortable footwear when we see it. We love our tried-and-true brands, but every once in a while, a brand comes along and makes us swoon. Meet: Intentionally Blank, which joined our lineup this season. We’re super excited to partner with a brand that has a lot of personality and is still comfortable to wear every day, all year long.

Intentionally Blank is a queer-owned company that was founded by Ty McBride in 2014 in Los Angeles, CA. His vision is to create the pieces that help you fill the blanks in your personal style mantra. Whether you think you’re missing out on comfort, excitement, whimsy, color…whatever it may be, Intentionally Blank can help you out. The brand is driven by the idea that shoes are the ultimate accessory and expression of individual style – and we tend to agree with them! 

This company creates shoes you’ll want to wear. They work with progressive, like-minded factories in China, Spain, and Brazil, garnering inspiration from local cultures, and are committed to embracing diversity. They work tirelessly toward sustainability, using recycled materials for their packaging and researching other ways to use scrap materials in future products. 

Every Intentionally Blank shoe is crafted with memory foam footbeds for cushioned support, ensuring all-day comfort that molds to your feet. They have a lot of styles to choose from, so we rounded up some of our favorites for you to get ultra-excited about.


Kamika is the perfect casual heel. It has a classic upper combined with a fun, unique rounded heel, and it comes in a ton of colors, so you’ll always be coordinated. You can dress it up or down, so it’s the perfect heel for wandering a farmer’s market, hitting a local park, or meeting up with friends for a barbecue. 


If you want something with a little more security than the Kamika, you’ll love Kang. The upper covers more of your foot, with the added support of a small adjustable ankle strap around the heel. It has a trendy, squared-off toe, making it sleek and versatile. Kang is great for chasing around after young ones or dancing the night away. 


Wedding season is in full swing, but finding the perfect shoes that look great and are comfortable enough for a full night of socializing and dancing can be tough – until now. The 1-800 is inspired by high femme retro styles from the 90s, with a simple upper and a super unique, sculptural, flared heel. It’s “comfort meets excitement” with this adorable pair of heels. 


On the more casual end of the spectrum is the Mary. Platforms aren’t going anywhere any time soon, so you might as well hop on the train with this minimalistic, sleek pair. A padded, cloud-like leather footbed and comfy rubber base means you can wear Mary all day and night. 


Intentionally Blank doesn’t just have shoes for special occasions. The Essex is a perfect performance mule that works for everyday wear, no matter what the task at hand is. It’s an essential for effortless dressing that keeps you looking cool, casual, and (most importantly) comfortable.

We’re proud to welcome Intentionally Blank to the Hansen’s family, and we can’t wait to hear which of their products you love. So go ahead, stock up on some new shoes for the warmer weather and let Intentionally Blank be part of your closet for years to come.
