Parisian graphic artist Mathieu Missiaen gave a serious buzz around the globe with his art work on designer pumps. As real art, I hardy believe that anyone would go shopping on Oxford Street with these jewels on the feet (OK, maybe the grey ones and not on Oxford Street), but it doesn’t affect the worship […]


If you like me review designer shoes collections for many hours each and every day inevitably will notice some very slight inclination from flats to the sporty flats. Volcom, Billabong and Keds started first, but now they are everywhere. You might think that only the sporty ladies will shop for them, but I don’t think […]


Animal Instinct

15Oct07

All of our favourites included the animal detail in their fall collection. It is definitely a trend, and Marc Jacobs even boldly added eyes, ears and whiskers to his flats’ styles. Here is a selection from Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Stuart Weitzman & Kate Spade. I am still thinking wether to embrace the “animals” but […]


The title says it clear enough – there are shoes for inspiration, but we also need shoes for our daily lives. The best option of course is to find shoes that are both inspirational and afforable (because I don’t know about you, but I can hardly limit my closet needs to 2-3 pairs per season). […]


Simplicity is everything. Maybe the designer shoes area is not the perfect proof to that, but Simple Shoes have put a good start. There is no need to say (or maybe there is, uh) that their shoes are eco-friendly. I like the boots the most, they could be 2007/2008’s UGGs who knows? Simple Shoes Women’s […]


The ballet flats evolved. Mary Janes seem like evolved too – with ties. It is not something totally new of course, each of us has a pair of shoes with ankle tie, but its new for the flats and for the Mary Janes. I am personally comfortable with this, just to give you one piece […]


Here is the fix I need in terms of shoes, and today it comes from Topshop. We saw the sandals on many celebrity feet this summer. The flats and ballet pumps on everybody’s feet. I don’t get it what is about Topshop that attracts me so much, but it’s a fact – its not just […]


Seems like Franco Sarto has other understanding of irony, and very unique too! You look at them, and its obvious – this is what we are all wearing this fall (and most probably in spring too) ironic or not. And many have already started – Renne did, Sarah Michelle Gellar did, Carmen Electra too, and […]


With the legacy of Anne Klein, the touch of Donna Karan’s genius, and the take over by Jonas Apparel Group, this brand’s shoes simply cannot turn you down. As you know Jonas Apparel’s nationally recognized brands include Jones New York, Evan-Picone, Norton McNaughton, Gloria Vanderbilt, Erika, l.e.i., Energie, Nine West, Easy Spirit, Enzo Angiolini, Bandolino, […]


Ann Marino – Stylish! Although we already saw pairs like this one on Kate Moss and Sienna Miller’s feet last boot season, its obvious that the trend contunues this fall/winter in full speed. Little is known of Ann Marino as a general information of her work, but the scarce models she signed off speak for […]


Matisse released this “Sampson” ruched suede flats and we are stunned! The seude-like fabric upper with the metallic shimmer is man made, and there is bow on the back heel. The footbed is lightly padded and the toe is pointed. The sole is also man made and rubberized. The available colors at Smart Bargains are […]


Oh, we’ve been waiting for this moment right since we’ve noticed those Nantucket Black Nappa flats. Apart from looking just gorgeous they also would bring so much comfort … and style, well, not very unusual for Me Too. You could have them in either black or beige & black. You can get this item from […]
