Slide Show

June 3, 2016

The pitter patter of little feet will be coming to an office or restaurant near you. No, we don’t mean someone is expecting a baby. We’re talking about slides and mules, those late 90’s throwbacks that make a rather annoying sound as our feet slap about when we walk.

This time around, there are lots of variations to the theme. From pancake flats to chunky block heels, there’s one thing to be sure of… they’re back!

Low heels and closed pointed toes make these mules almost seasonless:

Phillip Lim, Prada, Opening Ceremony, Gucci

Simple slip on slides in tumbled leather or metallics:

Wide crossed straps, embellishments and chunky soles take “shower shoes” to the next level.

Chunky heels and peep toes in colored suede, denim or floral prints modernize the mule and are the perfect warm weather option that’s not too bare:

If last year was about the Birkenstock, this summer will be all about the designer Dr. Scholl:

What Do You Call a Female Pope?

March 15, 2013

By now you’ve seen our post about the new Pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio and our recommendations for his Papal footwear. But for a moment, let’s just imagine that the Catholic Church displayed some unique open-mindedness, and the new Pope is a woman!
Now we can really look at shoes, y’all!!

Chances are, she wants a little height. I mean, those flowing robes can swallow up a petite girl. Perhaps she might rock some Valentino stilettos, with very Papal gold studded heels.


We all know that Popes prefer Prada, so these high platform sandals with a cut out wedge could work well for summer, provided there is a pedicurist at the Vatican.


Snakeskin Loubies are a status symbol and our Pope-ess might love the elegance of this sky-high heeled, peep toe pumps with a hidden platform. Christian Loubitan’s signature red soles are said to be good for a women’s soul, so we say “hallelujah” for this choice!


Brian Atwood’s strappy zip front sandal could be a great way for the Popette to feel feminine and dare we say it, sexy. It’s the equivalent of wearing silk and lace lingerie under a conservative business suit… it’s a guilty pleasure only she knows about. Those vestments are pretty long, and hey, your secret is safe with us, girlfriend.


Sometimes a girl needs comfort, and these Tory Burch ballerinas are iconic these days. The gold logo on the front kind of resembles a cross, doesn’t it?


These shoe choices may not be needed now (although nobody knows what goes on behind closed doors) but it’s fun to dream. We are looking forward to the day that pink smoke blows from the Vatican chimneys, symbolizing the election of the first female Pope.

The Pope Wore Prada

March 14, 2013

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires has been named the 226th Pope of the Catholic Church, taking the name Pope Frances.


As his predecessor, Pope Benedict turns in his red Prada slip-ons and shuts down his Twitter account, “@Pontifex” in preparation for his departure, Cardinal Bergoglio will be finding his way around his new town, and thinking about how to make his mark as the new Pontiff.  Once the smoke clears (pun intended) he will need to make some stylistic choices to get this Popedom started.

In honor of the momentous occasion, we have gathered some of the season’s fiercest red shoes for his perusal.


These skull embossed patent leather Alexander McQueen slippers would lend an edgy vibe to the traditional Cossack look.


Nothing screams Italian like a horse bit loafer, and these Gucci patent ones will have him blending in with the locals in no time.


Fashion duo Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2, have created a classic wingtip in rich red. A manly choice.


Perhaps he will choose the iconic Tod’s driving moc, which is perfect for cruising around town in the Popemobile.


For the modern Pope on the go, these DC skateboard shoes are just the thing, offering both comfort and a sense of urban cool.

We’re sure whatever he chooses will be historic. Best of Luck Francis! Glad we could help.



Put Your Best Foot Forward

February 11, 2013

It’s fashion week here in New York,and that means it’s time to break out your most impractical, outrageous and uncomfortable shoes. Yes, the sky is the limit for heel height, and the more extreme, the better. So what happens when a blizzard rolls through the city? The shows must go on, but the footwear might have to change. Here are a few shots showing  intrepid fashionistas adapting to what will go down in history as the time when Fashion met Nemo: the great blizzard of Fall 2013 fashion week:

Shoes of Prey

January 25, 2013


Lots of things come across my desk these days; crazy inquiries for consulting services, Linkedin requests, and a ton of spam. One day I added up the amount of money I supposedly won or inherited, and if only it were real, I would be wealthier than Donald Trump.

An email introducing this website passed through my inbox today and completely blew me away!

Fact: Girls love shoes. It starts at a young age and continues indefinitely. It has to be genetic.

What if there was a way you could get the perfect shoe, designed to your specifications, made to fit, even if you preferred a different size for each foot?
What if you could color and fabricate the shoe to match a specific outfit?
Well, now you can do all that and more!
Introducing Shoes of Prey, a bespoke shoe company that allows you to choose style, heel height, size, material and color for each component of the shoe. Not only can you customize your style, but you can also customize your fit. With sizes ranging from 2.4-15(!!!), almost everyone can find the perfect shoe in their size. If it doesn’t fit, the company will remake the shoes free of charge.

The process is easy and lots of fun. Let the footwear designer inside you run wild, selecting a style, and digitally filling in each section of the shoe with one of the many choices of materials and colors.
Prices start at $169 for a sandal and go up to about $379 for a bootie.

What more could a girl want?

Urban Gladiators

July 24, 2009


From Prada to Payless, the gladiator sandal is the shoe of the season.
Inspired by Roman Gladiators, and interpreted by designers at all levels, this flat-heeled strappy shoe is showing up everywhere!

This trend started last year, and has spread to the masses, with children and grandmothers alike all sporting an iteration of the shoe.

When something peaks to this extreme, it begs the fashionista in us to ask: “What’s next?”

Tell us what you think the next big sandal trend will be by commenting below, or emailing us at
