Another two seasons pass and I find myself wanting to tough it out with a pair of LD Tuttle shoes with their new A/W 09-10 collection.  So many near-Tuttle opportutieis – lingering over them on Oak NYC, nearly clicking that Checkout button and had I made it to their showroom in New York whilst I was there I might even have done the Tuttle deed.  2009 will surely mark the year I finally get Tuttled.  Especially when the shoes in question, whilst clearly evolved from the last fall collection, have blossomed with added detailing and textures.  Like the clasps that make satisfying click noises when they snap into place in the first picture, the exposed stitches, the criss-crossing leather and the curved platforms. 

I'm cheering on the bank account to get me some Tuttle action…

P.S. I just like the word Tuttle and the way it sounds.

    Ooh! I’ve had my eye on ‘The Spectre’ since it came out, LOVE it! They’ve already sold out in my size 🙁

    That’s a bit of a Kirkwood sole, isn’t it? I expect to see more of that. I agree, Tuttle is a good word!

    susie, i must tell you that i fell for ld tuttle after seeing them here on your blog and immediately bought a pair when they first appeared on, so now you really should get a pair! i saw the new ones with the leather-covered carved heels in person and they are really amazing.

    They’re so cute! I especially love the 2nd pair. Yum. Though they’d surely get messed up uber quickly… though they look like they could handle it ;-D

  18. adreamer says:

    liking the name is fair enough. say it fast enough and it sounds like you’re saying turtle in a retarded kind of way 😀
    the shoes speak for themselves. the first pair are absolutely divine

  19. luxirare says:

    yes totally agree about criss cross leather ones! These shoes are great, one of them reminds me of some whittled down version of those Margiela shoes with the little strap crossing the toes.

  20. Georgie says:

    I love them all, I think I will need to save a lot of money before i could afford them first.
