Let’s Shoe Shoo Shoo Together

>> I had to post these Loeffler Randall x Suno shoes once again just to start off this post of NYFW shoe collaborations that have been making my heart go ba-boom-ba-boom.  I still haven't decided on which print will be gracing my feet complete with a HUUUUUUGE chunk of wedge that looks like it could also be a good doorstop…

…however, I'm now a-prints-a-plenty in the shoe department when I went to the Chris Benz presentation and saw these offerings, a collaboration with Alejandro Ingelmo.  There's sort of Erdem x Nicholas Kirkwood vibe going on here that's aided of course by the vibrant floral prints but Ingelmo's rounded wedge shape cutesifies the overall look because the toe is so round and the platform, so hidden and high.  Purists will love the nude and black woven offerings but print-lovers will have to choose between some choice florals… oh and there happens to be a pair of blue floral trews that match the blue wedges if that helps/hinders things (more about the presentation later…

Due to a scheduling mishap I didn't make it to Julian Louie's presentation but a reader did point out the Aldo x Julian Louie shoe collab and fortunately I ran into some peeps from Aldo yesterday at the Rad by Rad Hourani show (they also did his shoes too… black slitty leather with a square heel… will definitely sell out in a flash…), who I had met in Montreal where they are based.  There are seven styles altogether for Julian Louie's collaboration and they will all be going into production so it will make for an affordable shoe collab option considering that Julian Louie is a relatively young designer.  Again, it's a tricky picky question with which Ikat weave combo to go for…

  2. Wow absolutely love the floral wedges in the middle there, kind of like miumiu but better… wonder how long I have to wait now 😛

  3. Hiya! Waowww the shoes are absolutely amazing! I’m a sucker for wedges and the ikat weave combo shoes are something else. I’m from Indonesia and I’ve seen ikat weaves being made into sooo many things including shoes *and to be quite honest I’m not a big fan of ikat weaves to wear* but the ones here are on a whole new level, and now I want to wear ikat weaves! haha. It’s great too see it being used like this. Thanx for sharing the pics!!!

  4. Wow these shoes are amazing!! The floral prints and the woven basket look on the shoes is amazing, and the unique shape. I love the rounded toe. It make the shoe really cutesy, yet the wedge makes it sexy. They are just great!!

  7. I love this jigsaw design in footwear. It make so much of an impact and fresh update to the well-known shapes. The last images fit perfectly to the tribal,nomadic inspired originals. Nomadic tribals

  8. thanks so much for following up with the julian louie closeups. loving all these shoes. love your work.
    p.s., while you’re in NYC, if you haven’t already got a pair of the isabel toledo x payless high ghillies, you should def scoop a pair. they are very ‘susie’ and offer all sorts of possibilities for pairing with crazy socks;-)

  9. I love how how orthopedic the nude knee socks are! I’m going to start rocking those. And these wedges are to die for.
    Love Grace.

  10. Lovely shoes! I also posted my love for the Alejandro Ingelmo for Chris Benz a couple days back, not knowing you had as well:) I am so in love with the prints and form, I cannot get over it! So happy to see them up-close from someone who was at the show, so thank you!

  11. Who knew such a small, stinky body part could get so much attention. Once I start dressing the rest of my body in style, I will focus on my feet!
