Regular Shoeblog readers may recall September of last year when we saw some very intriguing styles from Proenza Schouler’s spring 2009 runway show.
For those of you who want a chance to own some of these styles, they have started to appear online via Saks.com.
The first two shoes below are very close to styles seen on the runway; including the strangely organic skeletal heels that immediately bring to my mind the various ’biomechanical’ artworks by HR Giger.
If these are too unusual for you, there is also an on-trend version of the still-popular gladiator/spat sandal:
Admittedly, the flats are really not my style. There would be too much chance of ‘the shoes wearing me’ rather than the other way around.
I could, however (were finances to permit) completely see myself sporting that wicked and slightly dangerous-looking cutout heel.
Bring on the towering Femme Fatale!
