Translating as  faithful  and loyal  in Spanish Fiel , the shoe brand  made their fame designing the kind of flip flops you pretty much want to live in.We would call it the perfect city flip flop. For spring 2011 the young brand continues their foray into footwear with a collection inspired by Mexican folklore and exotic travel. Incredibly soft leather designed and made  in California. Peek at our Compass finds on the flip.

Spotted on the Floor: Shoe Candids

TradeLAMB Spotted on the Floor: Shoe Candids

When attending the trade shows, I always intend to take candids of the fashionable folks strolling the floors, but you’d be surprised if you haven’t been to the shows because it’s not always easy to find photo-worthy walkers! For a lot of attendees, it’s a work event and they’re wearing comfy (read: b-o-r-i-n-g) footwear. The one exception was New York’s Coterie. That crowd was much more dressed up, but then again the labels that show there are higher end and the crowd is older. Alas, I forgot my camera that day. The image above was worn by a LAMB rep at the Project show in Vegas. After the flip some candids of Chloe boots, Jeffrey Campbell wedges and and a couple of other cute styles spotted at Magic (also held in Vegas), Project and Compass (in New York).

Compass: Native Spring and Fall 2010

CompNative1 Compass: Native Spring and Fall 2010

Looking like shelves stocked with rows and rows of candy, the launch of Native caught plenty of attention at Compass. The molded EVA (think Crocs, only 10x slicker designs) makes them both lightweight and color-friendly. On the flip, check out the hiker and some adorable slip-ons for the little boo-boos in your life.

80/20 at Compass: Spring 2010

Mesh oxford with cork bottom
Just returned with Samia from Compass, a trade show that is making its appearance for the first time in New York. It took me the whole show to get to talk to 80%20 designer Ce Ce Chin because, simply put, she had the busiest booth in the place. Chin’s forte has always been to design shoes and boots that are  eye-catching and forward, but still emminently wearable, and each year her collection gets better. Spring, featured here and on the flip, had several stand-out styles, including some recolored versions from last year. We couldn’t photograph fall, but it has a bunch of the neatest boots you could ever imagine. See more after the flip, including a couple of pairs now available for preorder at Intermix and an Anthropologie exclusive.

80%20 CeCe Playing Hooky @ Compass

Now that this new show, Compass, is in the mix, there’s gonna be a lot of brands that are going to have to decide where it’s best to show. The big dudes can afford to show in both if they please (though note that Converse chose to bypass WSA altogether), but smaller, budget-constrained designers often don’t have that kind of money ’cause trade shows aren’t cheap!.

^^The lovely, talented, smart and funny Ce Ce Chin, designer/owner for 80%20, showed at the WSA, but not one to missed out on the action, we caught her playing hooky and visiting her pals at Compass.

LaCoste @ WSA

31 July 2008, 20.12 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Fashion, Shoes, Sneakers | No comments »

LaCoste was actually at WSA and Compass, but like a dummy, I didn’t visit the booth at Compass, where, I’m told by Lacoste p.r. champ Emalie Adcock, there were was lots of cool Vault stuff that wasn’t at the WSA. Oh well, the stuff at the WSA was still pretty great.

^^These bright-pink hightops were causing quite the ruckus in the booth. I had to wrestle them away from a sales rep and as soon as I was done shooting them he snatched them right back.

After the flip, see Amalie’s faves, as well as another pair of hightops and some sporty flats.

J. Shoes @ Compass

Spring 2009 will be a good season, I’ll bet, for women’s footwear. A lot of new ideas sprung up during 2008 and it’s looking like a lot of them will be expanded on and combined for next spring. Here’s a spring 2009 J.Shoe style that combines gladiator looks on a platform with Native American detail influences.

Creative Rec @ Compass

I made it out to Vegas! First thing I did was to visit the Compass show, a long overdue, hip, alternative to the WSA shoe show. It was mostly men’s shoes, but there was some great stuff there for women, too. First up, Creative Rec, which has been killing it with its women’s product:

^^As you can see, hightops are preparting to go higher AND glossier. These are just stunning.

One more on the other side…
