I’ve been having a bit of a crush-fest on shoe offerings from Alexander Wang this year. Let’s face it, Alexander Wang is one of those fashion houses that loves designing shoes and does them right. (more…)
Happy Monday, folks.
Summer hit here hard last week in my part of the country, if a day late temperature-wise. Which has me personally shopping my closet for alternatives to the boots that still litter my none-too-organized wardrobe’s floor.
And, of course, wishful thinking brings me to engage in online window-shopping as well. Which is a bit masochistic when I am on a budget-healthy, shoe-restriction. But what’s a shoe lover to do?
Anyway, I go peeking over at Saks and what do I find? Boots, boots and more boots for Fall 2010, coming into stock now.
No, I will not show you any boots today – no matter that they are trickling back into retailers in anticipation of the fall retail season. I won’t do it. Not today.
Today, I am going to indulge in more of an all-seasons, dinner-date to club-vibe of a shoe.
These are subtle statement shoes. Yes, that is a bit of an intentional oxymoron. These are coy at first glance with a bit of an edge expressed in the heel.
These are …dare I say it? … a bit like a mullet …. business in the front, but party in the back. Luckily, these are much prettier than any mullet I’ve ever seen. I particularly like how the chain is integrated into the corset-styled lacing – just the thing to hint at your exotic side.
What to you, our readers think?
Have you seen, read, or heard about Mihai Albu’s architectural shoes? The styles are, for the most part, imaginative, extreme, crazy, wild, wearable-art pieces.
In other words: Statement Shoes.
Via the Mihai Albu website:
Okay. I know this first shoe isn’t really all that over-the-top or statement-y. But it is available for purchase online, so I thought I’d include it anyway. For the real show-stoppers, I thought I’d leave them as a surprise after the break.
Are you ready?
There is nothing worse than the official Christian Louboutin web site. All you see are these awful green eyes and floating shoes. You are supposed to click on this little photo to pull the shoe up. Terrible.
I used to be all about Christian Louboutin shoes, maybe I am getting old, contrary, or just grouchy, but I didn’t see anything lustilicious. Lots of spikes, lots of studs, lots of metalics, lots of ultra high platforms, lots of over the top. Whatever.
Here is a glimpse of some of the shoes released last week.
These shoes do appeal to someone because there are about 200 counterfeit websites. Christian Louboutin released an update to the list of counterfeit sites a couple of weeks ago.
So, are any of these lustilicious for you? Maybe if I look at them long enough, I will change my mind.
