I’ve been dreading the end of summer because it means the weather will soon turn gloomy again but after seeing a sneak peak of the accessories in the Missoni for Target line, I have to say I’m actually looking forward to the fall or to be more precise September 13th, which is the date the 400+ gigantic Missoni for Target collection premieres. I’m particularly looking forward to trying out the cute rainboots and getting a set of the expresso cups. I can’t wait!
I remember kids actually wearing a penny in their loafers when I was a kid. Is this a trend we’re going to see make a comeback?
While I’m doubtful that we’ll see pennies in loafers on people other than those named Chet and Buffy, I do like the return of the penny loafer, in new, updated colors and sheens.
The patent on this loafer is shiny and fun, and the orange color is classic but sparky.
With concealed Nike Air technology, a fully padded leather sock lining, a mini stacked heel, and a suede buffed sole with injected TPU pods, this is a high-tech shoe! Supposedly the TPU pods help with stability and support.
Well, my shoe-loving friends, our Dansko sandal giveaway has come to an end.
Which means it’s time to announce a winner.
And that winner, according to a randomly selecting number generator, is… drumroll please…
Nancy L., who said: I love the Rowena in red!
Well, Nancy, drop me a line (jitterbugbaby at shoeblog dot com), and those Rowena’s in red can now be yours.
Anyone else feeling the Dansko love (and why you wouldn’t I don’t know), keep your eyes out for sales on these sandal styles as summer retailing season comes to an end. Feel free to drop in and let us know if you find great sales or have your own comfy Dansko stories to share.
Everyone knows by now that Louboutin lost the lawsuit trying to prevent YSL from making shoes with red soles, right? I mean, most ladies buying that level of footwear can tell a Loubie from a YSL from a mile away, and wouldn’t buy a red-soled shoe from Payless anyways. From the NYT.com article:
“But recognition aside, the court ruled that allowing Louboutin to claim that scarlet sole as its own would have been like forbidding Monet from using a specific shade of blue in his Water Lilies series because Picasso had been there first with paintings from his Blue Period.”
Great, so we can move on.
Specifically, to the IT SHOE OF THE MOMENT, YSL’s Robyn, at left. No red sole needed. NYMag.com named it the Best Bet for today. Click for purchasing details and cost.
In other news, Fashions Night Out has just launched its website! Where will you go? What will you do? The possibilities will be endless, from hot DJ’s to celebrity sightings to free manicures to shoes galore (on models, on celebs, on mannequins, in your hands and on their way home to your closet!). Check out FNO here. (More event deets will be added as the date gets closer).
Lastly, check out some looks for spring in Footwear News, with a slideshow on vintage-inspired wooden heels with 1970′s silhouettes, woven uppers and natural colors. Surely Bottega Veneta will be at the forefront of this look come spring, knowing how well it does neutrals and woven shoes!

Quite literally, Christian Louboutin’s Deja Vu slingbacks have got their eyes on you. While there is a novelty factor involved in this particular Louboutin zany design, I’m not impressed. First, the $1,595 price tag means you’ve got to be a collector or perhaps Lady Gaga herself to wear these shoes. Plus, I figure a second or third grader could glue eyes onto shoes for their art project.
What are you thoughts? Innovative, quirky, creepy (perhaps for Halloween?), or cool?
