There are so many good shoe sales going on right now, girls, I can’t even begin tell you. But here’s one place you have got to to visit: Plaza Too sales–fabulous deals on the likes of Loeffler Randall, Sigerson Morrison, Kate Spade, Lambertson Truex, and many others. This beautiful Loeffler Randall ‘Camille’ silver platform sandal is only $159, down from $495, for example. Not too shabby at all, n’est ce pas?

Ever wonder what the party people around the USA wear on their feet for a night (or day) out?
Then go check out Last Night’s Shoes, a new blog that… you guessed it… displays photos of people’s footwear at various events around the country. Much like our Shoes on the Street forum, only making that its sole focus (pun very much intended). Sure, there are plenty of snaps of Crocs and Converse sneakers. They’re pretty ubiquitous… it’s hard to escape them.
But there are also neat pairs like these Miami Vice limited edition Reeboks
and these adorable cut-out flats
Additionally, they sometimes give you links to find the shoes on your own (like the Miami Vice shoes above).
I know I’ll be keeping an eye on this blog.

Or you choose a style that’s on the way in:
…it seems you can’t go wrong either way!
Proving that a ballet flat is not a ballet flat without those ankle straps, but keeping things edgy with the peep-toe almost ubiquitously seen on his designs of late, Louboutin surprises us this season with a few models that, amazingly, do without the 5-inch stiletto heel:
Here’s another with a touch of rustic chic:
What I’m curious about, though, how much are women willing to pay for Louboutin flats, when his staple design involve either stilettos or wedges of dizzying heights? How distinctive are these designs for one to be willing to part with about $700 (let’s face it, a month’s rent for some of us) for a shoe that’s not even distinctly recognizable as a Loubou? Well, save for the red sole, but you’d have to take pains flaunting that one. Is the mystique gone once the height (and pain) is gone? One wonders…
