To quote Coco Chanel “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” When I first saw these Chanel running shoes, I thought Coco might be rolling in her grave. These shoes just do not reflect the feminine and timeless style that I absolutely love about Chanel. In fact, they are so off course for Chanel that I would have thought they were cheap knock offs had I not been on the official Chanel website. I know that sneakers and running shoes are ‘hot’ and a way for brands to extend their reach to appeal to a wider audience, but really, Chanel, isn’t this selling yourself a bit short and comprising the brand? Nike spends tons of money on research to achieve the perfect running shoe. Somehow, I don’t think much science was involved in creating this shoe.
What are you thoughts? Do you like this shoe? Would you wear it?
I’ve been trying to find a way to comment diplomatically about the shoes and fashions at the SS2011 Chanel show but find that words fail me. I am trying very hard to politely express my disappointment in both the shoes and fashion that were shown.
First, the shoes:

For the grand reopening of the Chanel Soho, New York Boutique on Friday, September 10th, a collection of limited edition shoes, ready to wear apparel, beauty products, and handbags will be available exclusive to the Soho Chanel boutique.
Footwear wise, there are about five types of footwear to purchase, all made of python (i.e. for California residents, this is off limits to you). This Chanel red python ballerina looks deliciously devilish and sinful.
CHANEL SoHo Exclusive Python Peep Toe Pump: $1,050
CHANEL SoHo Exclusive Python Ballerina: $995
SoHo Exclusive Handbag Python Handbag: $4,900
For more information including pricing and purchasing, contact the boutique at (212) 334-0055 or email email@example.com

Ever wonder what warrants the high price tag for designer couture? For the Chanel Fall 2011 couture show, the devil really was in the details. I can only imagine how many hours it took to create this floral motif boot – the level of detail in the white flowers and golden leaves is just amazing.
More Chanel Couture Fall 2011 shoes, including slouchy boots, after the jump.
Pre-fall 2010 shoes have begun to arrive in department stores. For the non-retail shopper in me that translates into sales on the spring/summer collection to make room for the new footwear. Most department stores discount their merchandise in June and started pre-sales in May so much of the selection has already been reserved, but it never hurts to see what you’ll find in stores. Here are some of my favorites:
At Nordstroms, our contact tells us most of the Louboutins have already been sold. That’s okay by me. I’m crushing over these Miu Miu jeweled flats (the picture is in tan but if you like dark rose they are on sale for $355 (originally $595).
Nordstroms also a Chanel thong in silver (picture is to demonstrate the silhouette only) on sale for $339, down from $575. Sizes are extremely limited. If you are interested in finding out which cruise/summer styles on on sale, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or our Nordstroms SA Henry at email@example.com.
Not to be outdone, Net-A-Porter has 5 pages worth of sale shoes.
Net-A-Porter even has a pair of Louboutins, the Miss Chief on sale for 50% off or $400.
Barneys.com also has a few decent shoe sales as well. But be forewarned, I’ve had orders cancelled due to lack of inventory. These square toed Lanvin pumps with ankle strap are now $414, down from over $1000.
Happy shoe shopping everyone! And for those of you who do find a great shoe, please share with us over on the forums. We promise not to have too much shoe envy.
