If there’s one thing Miuccia Prada loves, it’s the challenge of taking something ugly and recasting it in a beautiful light, and while doing is, challenging her consumers to rethink their own concepts of what can or can’t be aesthetically appealing. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the Prada Spring 2013 Runway Shoes, some of which are now available for purchase at NeimanMarcus.com.
As she always does, though, Miuccia managed to translate some (emphasis on “some”) of the runway madness into something totally wearable. The leather/satin boot-sandals (bootdals?) are still around, but the strict straps and pretty bows have also been used to create a few sandals that manage to be both girlish and modern without sacrificing the finer points of either. You can have the full-on madness or just a touch of it – take your pick. Check out our picks from the runway collection below or shop the full selection via Neiman Marcus.
