Tom Ford is as revered as anyone currently in the fashion industry, and in general, I love his aesthetic. I loved him at Gucci, I love his fragrance and cosmetic lines, I think his style vision is unique and interesting. Unfortunately, I’m not such a big fan of his handbags, and now, I’d like to talk with you about his shoes.
Tom Ford footwear just debuted on NeimanMarcus.com late last week, and I’m not entirely convinced. The shoes are pretty good, but they’re not all that distinctive or interesting, which is the same problem I had with the bags over at PurseBlog. They’re also extremely expensive, because they’re made by Tom Ford, which is practically synonymous with “expensive.” Check out the Tom Ford Padlock Ankle Strap Pump Above, $1100 via Neiman Marcus, and take a look at some more of Ford’s initial Internet offerings after the jump. Chime in! We want to hear what you think of the collection in the comments.
