The thing that keeps me returning again and again to the pictures of the shoes from Fendi Spring 2011 is that the brand somehow managed to take so many colors and make them work together so flawlessly, in so many different combinations. Even if the structure of these shoes isn’t your cup o’ tea, you have to give them some credit for masterful color work.
That being said, the structure of these shoes is my cup o’ tea, particularly in the face of so many designers doing stilettos with high platforms. Thick heels and no platforms (save for the two overstated wedges in the collection) seem fresh and new by contrast, and the tiny, unexpected touches of color have put me over the top. A bright red cork heel is something I never expected to love, but in this context, it seems essential.
