We may not currently be able to offer you access to the diamond-soled shoes of that famous Paul Simon song, but for today’s Pedicure of the Week, we have what might be the next big thing: gold for your toes. The Rococo Gold Leaf Lacquer is exactly what it sounds like – real 24-carat gold leaf shreds, suspended in clear nail polish. Read More...

For seasons upon seasons, the fashion industry seemed to feel, collectively, that the only way to look polished was to wear heels, and high heels at that. Stilettos served as a badge of honor, a sign that a woman cared more about looking good than being comfortable, a word that’s often conflated with “slovenly” in style circles.

Editor Jordan Bickhem picked 31 of spring’s best kicks and had them photographed alongside cats both professional and amateur (and some adoptable!). Read More...

The TalkShoes team doesn’t talk amongst itself before we gather our shoe picks for Want It Wednesday, so when an unofficial theme emerges, it’s simply because we’re all in the same mood. Today, one such theme is apparent – we’re all about light, bright shoes, probably because we can’t wait for spring weather to really arrive. Check out this week’s picks below! Read More...

As aesthetics go, punk rock is among the easiest to identify. Punks love things that are extreme, industrial, dark and a little bit dirty – studs, safety pins, black leather, excess hardware, heavy boots, aggressive heel heights.
