It’s fairly well-documented that Jeffrey Campbell makes some ridiculous shoes. The elusive designer’s line is so vast that it encompasses everything from neutral, totally functional boots and flats to platforms that are probably tall enough to qualify as stilts and that come in every manner and mode of embellishment that you can possible think of. The Jeffrey Campbell Icy Glitter Platform Booties definitely fit at the latter of the two extremes, and they’re so extreme that I’m a tad surprised that they’re available at a mass-market retailer like Bloomingdale’s.

We had our first few snowflakes of the season in New York City yesterday, but that doesn’t mean that a group of women who fawn over shoes for a living is prepared to be practical about our footwear. We’ve got a few foul-weather options in our proverbial back pockets, what we’re wanting on this Want It Wednesday is footwear that might be appropriate for the temperature (mostly) but certainly does not yield its style to the worsening weather.

At this point, nothing you can put on a sneaker would genuinely surprise me. It’s a post-Jeremy Scott x Adidas world, and we’re just living in it. Most of the fashion taboos that still exit are for men, and usually for men who want to be publicly perceived as heterosexual. So where do these Lanvin Iridescent Snakeskin Sneakers fit? Read More…

Some shoes you buy to wear, others you buy to look at, and still others you buy because they’re just too good of an opportunity to pass up. The Alexander McQueen Enameled Flower Suede Wedges fit into the latter two categories; not only would they make a stunning display piece in the fantastical boutique-closets that I know some of you have, but they’re currently available in two sizes for 70% off.

Ladies, I want you to know that, first and foremost, I respect your right to an UGG Boot. Really, I do. I own two pairs myself: a pair of hardcore snow boots that aren’t immediately identifiable as UGGs and a pair of grey Classic Short Boots that you can spot a mile away as being from the much-reviled snuggly footwear brand.

Sometimes, you have to take a trip to visit a pair of shoes. About a month ago, I ventured down to Bergdorfs with my friend JM in pursuit of the Prada Metallic Bow Pumps, only to find that the store didn’t carry them. We checked at the Prada flagship down the block; no dice. This pair was made specifically for department stores, we found out, so we walked several more blocks through throngs of tourists to get to Saks. Read More…

Another Wednesday, another round of totally covetable shoes that the TalkShoes team wants badly. This week, we appear to have made the full mental transition to fall, with choices full of toe-covering pumps and loafers, plus knee-high boots for both slushy and decidedly non-slushy weather. One member of the team is also craving some indoor shoes, but you’ll have to follow along below to figure out what we mean by that. Read More…

Normally, I’m of the opinion that the more rugged a motorcycle boot, the better. My personal favorite pair includes wrapped buckle straps so loose and chunky that I sometimes sound like a cowgirl parading her spurs down the hall toward the office, and once I arrive, I look vaguely like a pirate. The slick, elegant Pierre Hardy Buckled Ankle Boots are the opposite of those shoes, but I’m totally in love. Read More…
