As soon as I saw these Pierre Hardy cutout shoes, complete with lined up circles and jagged edges, memories of this little shoeblogger printing her english reports on dot matrix printer paper emerged. Luckily, I don’t see any possibility of paper jams with these shoes.
Pierre Hardy shoes are available for purchase at Barneys.com
If you don’t know what dot matrix paper looks like, have a blast from the past. Why the hole ridges down the side? It served as a guide to feed the paper into the printer. Ahem, since this post just dated me considerably, let just say that I was still born in this last half century.
Here’s a public service announcement I fully intend to heed: color, color, and more color on my feet–and who knows, maybe spring will come sooner. Scientists around the world work furiously to prove this hypothesis. I need no proof: I just need these shoes.

Yes, lucky commenter 24, Barbara, has a $100 discount coming to her at Nota Bene’s online shop.
Perhaps she’ll soon be joining the ranks of satisfied customers whose testimonials are up on the site:

These shoes feel like slippers. I am someone who stands a lot at work, and normally only wears “comfort shoes.” I love having pretty dress shoes that I can trust as much as my casual comfort shoes.
Kris, Director, Financial Planning Firm, 45. McLean, VA
Handling both clients and family, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate shoes that are as comfortable as they are beautiful. I’m in my Nota Bene shoes for about 12 hours a day, and I love that I no longer have to sacrifice style for comfort. After 18 months, they are holding up beautifully, I continue to get compliments on them, and they’re a sure choice whenever I travel!

I was reading a review of shoes on MSN, and they recommended Nota Bene for women who have to do a lot of work on their feet and women who have wider feet. I went and tried while I was at a conference in Chicago. . . .I was in LOVE. They feel like the “comfortable shoes” that you put in your bag, but they look like the cute heels that you want to wear out and around to impress people.
I’ve always been a fan of Dries van Noten; I love his ethnic inspiration, his colorful prints, his inventivity. It’s like wearing a work of art! Same goes for his shoes (well, with one notable exception). The collection he presented for Fall 2008 is equally artful and tasteful. Tell me you don’t want at least one of these pairs for your collection!
Based on observations of his Balenciaga show in Paris, I think we can safely say that Nicolas Ghesquière is going multipurpose with his shoes.
Some may be talking about weaponizing space, but Ghesquière is weaponizing shoes!
I certainly wouldn’t want to be kicked in the shins by any of these sleek and deadly creations.
