Halle Berry is following in the footsteps of supermodel Cindy Crawford by designing a footwear collection for German chain Deichmann.

Entitled “5th Avenue by Halle Berry,” the collection is set to launch across Europe from March 5 and comprises 40 summery styles. The actress emphasized her decision to create an affordable collection, with prices for footwear beginning at £29.99 (€35).

Halle Berry launching affordable footwear line for 'every woman'

“The shoes can easily be worn by every woman. They are stylish, yet reasonably priced, that is what my collection is all about,” the star explained in a recent release.

Stand-out pieces in the line, which will go on sale in 21 European countries, include peep-toe wedges, strappy sandals and slingbacks.

Berry’s previous business ventures include launching signature scent Halle by Halle Berry in 2009, and her decision to venture into the realm of footwear follows an increasing rise in celebrity shoe lines.

British singer Cheryl Cole took to Twitter this week to offer a sneak preview of her Spring 2012 shoe range for website Stylistpick, while US actress Rachel Bilson unveiled a collection of footwear designed with the assistance of stylist Nicole Chavez and designer Steve Madden on website Shoemint last November.
