Today the April showers have decided to have one last hurrah before May comes. But let that not deter us from excitement about springtime shoes.
On a recent stroll through the high end department stores in New York City, I snapped some pictures of shoe friends old and new that are out in the stores.
First up, of course, how can I pass by the now-infamous Marc Jacobs heel-less shoe? It’s on display at Bergdorf’s in all its oddly-shapen glory.
(those are my MUCH comfier Converse sneakers there reflected on the pavement, and believe me, I won’t be making that trade anytime soon)
At 10022-SHOE, the shoe floor of Saks that’s so big it needs its own zip code, corset styling is the rage. Chanel’s combined it with their classic quilted pattern in a variety of colors.
Though I must say I’m partial to this more literal interpretation of the corset, with ivory waxed canvas peeking through the laces.
Don’t want such crazy high heels (because I sure don’t)? Then how about these classy little loafer-inspired ballet flats.
Or my very favorite shoe spotted on the whole floor, this flat Prada boot.
It’s a flat! It’s an ankle strap! It’s Super Boot!
Tell me this wouldn’t be the perfect footwear for a really well-styled lady superhero. If my wallet had the ability to stretch indefinitely, this boot would be coming home to my closet, that’s for sure.
