Em, yes. Apparently Crocs have figured out that their traditional Croc was not the way to go. While beloved by gardeners and chefs worldwide, the traditional Croc was just about one of the ugliest things the world had ever seen made for a foot.
But aha! They figured out (perhaps from seeing Melissa’s model, or reminiscing on jellies of yore) that they could make a cute plastic shoe. Thermoplastic polyurethane, to be exact. The insole also features a foam resin called croslite™ with circulation nubs for a massage-like feel.
Hello, I am in love with both of these versions of Carvela Girl! Kurt Geiger is a genius.
From the satin bow and fabric to the contrasting platform and heel color, this is a wonderful shoe. At left, in green, it is elegant and demure despite it’s height. At right, in orange and purple, it is audacious and eye-catching. And thankfully, Asos will ship it for free to all of you Stateside! A huge heel, but a worthy investment for day to night.
Green is so big for spring. Buy your (I think rather reasonably-priced) Carvela Girl, $203.12 at Asos.com.
The YSL Trib in Patent Green is totally what the gross-spring-weather-doctor ordered. As soon as this rain stops, we can start wearing them.
How cool and unique is this color! We haven’t seen that many shoes in this unique shade. This shoe is sure to turn others metallic celery-green with envy.
And the pebble effect in the platform and heel is totally cool, both hard-edged and glam.
5.5 inches with a 1.25 inch platform. Soooooo… essentially, a 4.25 inch shoe. Ok, we’ll take it. Potential tripping and all.
Melissa, the young, playful gal fave that we’ve blogged about before, has a new line called Mel.
This spinoff line is cheaper, younger and more geared to teenagers.
Made of mellflex plastic, this sandal is 100 percent recyclable. It also appears to be the only heel in the line at the moment, though their flat sandals are adorable.
There’s a lot to love about these new Earth Sandals.
In the past, I had eschewed Earth Sandals. Those hippie girls I went to school with wore them, but I could never bring myself, even when I was a campus protesting activist gal. UGLY UGLY UGLY I kept hearing in my mind.
Not so with the Earth Enchanting, $119 at EarthFootwear.com. Excellent arch support, cushioning and cute decoration are the mood here. I tried them on, and they look and feel much better in person! So on my quest for comfy sandals this summer, I present you with Exhibit B (Exhibit A were the Bass Chloes). It’s environmental, comy and stylish, and definitely worth a look.
