Well, first of all, the Edmundo Castillo Chad Suede Booties have mad profile. They have profile in spades. Shoes are a piece of clothing that can be seen no matter the position of the wearer, and they have to be designed to be viewed from all angles. That’s fairly unique in the accessories world – jewelry and handbags generally have one section or side that’s seen far more often than the others, which provides an easy focal point for design. A shoe, on the other hand, can center it’s visual interest almost anywhere – the heel, the toe, the platform, the ankle strap. On this design, though, the clear winner is the profile.
That’s just in my estimate, though. Think these shoes have something else going on for them? For this week’s Fill in the Blank, share your thoughts in the comments. Or, if you’re so inclined, pick up this pair for $835 via Luisa Via Roma.
