There is something about suede that I find absolutely irresistable. I love touching it. I love the way it holds color. I love the way it looks. I have also heard many of you complain about water damage, so you have completely given up on wearing suede. That’s understandable. But, since I live in an area that gets 6 inches of rain a year, that isn’t an issue. (I know it’s annoying to hear me chirp about our mild winters, but we also hit 113 degrees today, so I get what I deserve.)
Yesterday I was able to go to the local Nordstroms and nearly died. They had about 30 pairs of suede shoes that I wanted to take home with me. I did buy a couple of pairs, but will have to wait to wear them because we won’t see autumn until mid- November.
Let’s see some suede shoes. All these shoes are from Nordstroms. Maybe you can guess which shoes I purchased.
Kors Parker Wedge Pump. $150.
The back of the Parkers.
Do you love that zipper? It isn’t a working zipper, but it seems to work with this 4 inch heel.
Calvin Klein Scarlet $110. The nice thing about this shoe is that when you look at the heel to toe ratio it is only a 3 inch heel. A perfect professional pump with a chunky heel that offers quite a bit of stability.
Dolce Vita Holt $159 I will admit, I would probably never wear a heel like this.
Sam Edelman Torin Boot $224 This boot sparkled so much under the halogen lights the studs looked like crystals. It was striking. It also looks like something Chloe Sevigny would wear.
Jeffrey Campbell Reagle $104 for those who have had it with sky high shoes, and need to give their feet a rest.
These are just a few of the suede samples that were available. The people in the shoe department gave me the evil eye because I kept touching their shoes. I think they were glad when I finally left.
