Highsnobette Burberry1 Burberry Prorsum Embellished Sandals

Mimicking fun colorful anklets (which we highly endorse) these Burberry sandals are indeed fun. While I personally find a kitten heel  problematic due to an  attraction to extremes (very low or very high), the reality is that a kitten heel is very  practical and can really look charming. See more angles on the flip and get them here.

Christian Louboutin Shoes Spring 2012

06 December 2011, 20.15 | Posted in Shoes, sandals | 2 comments »

CL27 540x475 Christian Louboutin Shoes Spring 2012

Christian Louboutin’s Spring 2012 lineup is now out, with two of the collections call out themes bright colors and a little more foot exposure then we’ve seen in the past. There are the usual two or three over-the-top, borderline vulger styles, which truth be told are what make the brand special and give it its halo of artistry. Louboutin could crank out Pigalle pumps all day and do just fine but it’s his willingness to “go there” without fear on a couple of designs each season that makes him special and above all the rest.

Q&A: Designer Ce Ce Chin Of 80-20 Chats About Shoe Trends

8020OpenToeLoafer 540x360 Q&A: Designer Ce Ce Chin Of 80 20 Chats About Shoe Trends
In an era in which mega-brands and retailers seem to be growing more dominant than ever, designer Ce Ce Chin of shoe brand 80%20 has always been welcome fresh air. Starting as a llifestyle sneaker company in 2005 with her first retail customers lower-Manhattan boutiques, she’s continued to grow, evolve and remain distinct because of a future-seeing design aesthetic that combines edge with ease and packs all that punch at prices the Downtwon trendsetters who adore her can afford. Case in point, the “hidden wedge,” now a popular design element, but truth be told it was Chin’s first. That ability to offer a new design twist on a shoe (like for Spring the open-toe loafer #straightfire above)you can still wear all day is really what defines 80%20 and makes it special.

Chin was in touch with us recently to let us know about an event at the great Shoe Market in Brooklyn, on November10th (a glass of wine AND 15% off all Holiday 2011 80%20 styles), and we asked if she couldn’t answer some quick questions on trends and what she sees coming up for Spring 2012.  Here’s what she had to say:

Q: What’s been your overall most popular style for Autumn 2011?
Chin: We have a new style called the Rina (see image on next page), which is a bit like Chelsea boot, but has an 1.5-inch heel and a 2-inch hidden wedge inside.  We’re taking the hidden wedge concept further along…  It’s so concealed that some people don’t even realize it’s there!

 Q: It looks like we’re seeing the return of women wearing sneakers as a lifestyle item with celebs being spotted in brands like Supra and Isabel Marant sneakers. What’s your take on the trend and do you see your brand addressing it?

See Chin’s response on the next page, along with Holiday 2011 and Spring 2012 shoe images.
