Ah come on II: Maison Martin Margiela Painted PVC Booties

Sorry people, I know there has been a tad of whining in this blog but the wonderful world of shoes seems very confusing lately.

Maison Martin Margiela Painted PVC Booties

Without even going into the specific details of this, such as $900 price tag or the totally unflattering model or why they just did not go to the shop for another can of black instead of releasing it on the market (they surely must have a trainee or fifteen responsible for crucial tasks like that), the two biggest questions in my head are: How could anybody at any point of time think that this is a good idea? And why?

Shoe math or come on: Kanye West By Giuseppe Zanotti “Kanye All Over Beads Sandals”

I don’t even longer know, maybe I AM an old prune. Maybe I am not really gettin’ the whole “it” of shoe fashion, maybe I will soon get the same shocked look from my friends as my mom got from me suggesting that I borrow her 3cm heeled (very middle-aged  looking) pumps for a school disco eternities ago (yes, I had a horizontally challenged feet area already then). Maybe I am losing a sense of (at least in my opinion) good taste.

But, for the in-my-book considerable sum of €4 505, in the choice between this:

Kanye All Over Beads Sandals

OR THIS:

Dolce & Gabbana Crystal-embellished satin pumps

PLUS (nope, not another “or”, plus it is) THIS:

Christian Louboutin Asteroid 140 suede and patent-leather pumps

And what the hell, for the additional €35,  these AS WELL, together with the two abovementioned pairs:

Christian Louboutin Maggie Glitter and Snakeskin Platform Pumps

I know what option I would go for, after giving a long giggle about the most expensive beads in the history of man.

But some good shall come from the first creation as well. If Kanye’s quote   “I’m trying to right my wrongs/ But it’s funny the same wrongs help me write this song,” is true, I think we might have a new album coming out soon. The guy can sing,  we all have to give him that.

Colourful shoe shopping on a shoe string: Zara Court Shoes

Excuses in advance for potential TV commercial vibes in this post.

Feel for a colourful feet vitamin shot but your budget is currently tighter than Kylie Minoque’s hotpants back in those days? As so many times before, Zara is offering a couple of “even more price-worthy than usual” alternatives. And while the pointy (and pink) pumps trend might have faded untill the Summer of 2013, for the modest price tag of app €40 there is no reason for anybody to lose sleep due to potential fashion risks of the next season.

And for app €33 there is also a possibility to take a walk in the opposite colour scheme (pun intended):

Extra points for the slightly  more almond-rounded toe. With all respect to current trends, one of my big toes’ primary needs is still a touch of personal space.

Shoe candy: Karen Millen Colourful Raffia Platform Sandal

Let’s start (a tad late) this week with something new and blue:

Karen Millen Colourful Raffia Platform Sandal

I am not totally sure where the “colourful” came from but I am definitely sold on the beige and blue as well as the pattern. While it probably takes a bit of tan and a drop of red nail polish in order for your feet not to disappear, I definitely find these sandals cute enough to put in an effort at the both.

Shoe poetry: Jimmy Choo Hazel Haircalf Platform Wedges

Oh Jimmy Chooo

I love youuuu

But this can’t doooo

My eyes got a flue

By seeing this shoe

That makes me blue

So off I go for a cookie or two

 

A shoe-girl’s brainfreeze: Irregular Choice Cant Touch This

A lot of words could be used but honestly Irregular Choice pump with the slightly playing-hard-to-get name “Cant Touch This” awakes only one reaction in me:

Irregular Choice Cant Touch This

Don’t need to.

 

 

 

 

Shoe classic candy: Sam Edelman Lorissa studded faux-snale pumps

I know that Lorissa pump has been on the market for some time now, in a whole bunch of different colours but I can’t help not liking this one enough for sharing it with you:

Let’s take a peek where the real action is, shall we:

Sam Edelman Lorissa studded faux-snake pumps

The cold shade of the blue leather almost gives the decoration a wintery feeling, making the studs and rhinestone embellishment look like ice and frost sparkling in the sun. And while I have been muttering over this Winter quite frequently for the past few months, it is obvious that I don’t mind walking into warmer seasons with it on my feet. If you’re ok with that as well, you can find Lorissa at Harvey Nichols.

Shoe fudge: Boutique 9 Doetzen3

Oh Summer where are thou? ‘Cause I have found a really cute friend for the two of us:

I think that we would make an awesome trio, your 20-25 Celsius sunny days, myself and the elegant, fudginess (with a touch of golden bling) of Doetzen.

Maybe I am living in self-denial, but the quite reasonable 10cm heel makes me also believe that my feet will not declare war due to the uncomfort of only two thin straps in front as the contact point between the shoe and a whole lot of my body weight, the pressure which increases significantly with a killer stiletto. In worse case, here we will just experience a minor conflict that will be resolved with a foot massage and a pair of flats.

Possible temporary shoe confusion: Aperlai 140mm Suede and Leather Elasticated Sandal

This really should not be my cup of tea. It is a chunky-ish slingback with “elasticated, PVC inserted straps” and a 140mm “marble effect heel” or to summarize it – a lot.

But I seem to be in a tea-flavor changing mood today ’cause I can really see this sandal work together with a white Greek-style short dress and a piece of heavy jewelry, like a pair of large turquoise earrings.

Shoe shiny fab: Karen Millen Crystal Peep toe pumps

Let’s give a wake-up slap to our inner magpies in the middle of the usual “oh why is it Monday already” weekly life crisis with something shiny and pretty – Karen Millen Crystal Peep toe pumps:

Classic model, curved edge, 11cm heel and a lot of bling – this is THE shoe you put on when there is some serious “modern Cinderella” time. Thanks to the 3cm hidden platform, there is also a good chance that you will be able to run away at the end of the evening, without leaving one of these babies behind. That would be a real pity considering the price tag of almost £300. It is both easier and cheaper just to hook up with the prince charming next day on Facebook.*
