Shoe reader Alexandra wrote us asking:
…I was hoping you could clear something up for me. I love Anne Hathaway and I’ve always wondered who designed the shoes she is wearing in this picture. It is from the 2008 Venice Film Festival, if that helps.
I was completely oohhing and awwing when I saw this dress on Anne Hathaway last year (the dress is by Versace if anyone is interested). For such a stunning dress, I was happy that the shoes were so classy and understated. They did not distract from the dress and all it’s beauty.
Unfortunately, I was unable to identify the exact shoe for you. By now there is a high likelihood that the style has been discontinued by whoever the designer is too. But, since I love solved mysteries, if there are any shoe readers out there who have better id’ing skills, please leave us a comment. First person to correctly id the shoe gets a small prize from us.
However, I’d like to recommend an alternative shoe for you. They are the Via Spaga Lulus. Although these Via Spiga sandals are not nearly as high or strappy as Anne’s, I can personally vouch for these shoes. I wore them during my wedding photos since they were more comfortable than my ceremony/reception shoes and they are a good price for well constructed shoes from Italy. The gold tone has also served me well – I’ve since worn the shoes on several occasions, pairing the shoes with a red dress, black gown, etc.
