In the not-so-distant past, Isabel Marant Bekket Sneaker Wedges (and their sister shoes of varying visages) were ungettable objects of desire for everyone from industry insiders to everyday fashion fans. They were like nothing else on the market at that moment, and Marant always imbues everything she does with her signature Parisian-cool style that makes it irresistible to a certain subset of stylish women.

Another week, another round of Want It Wednesday, in which all the members of our team select the two shoes they’d really like to blow their rent money on this week. Right now, nearly everyone’s feeling sandals, but I wouldn’t mind one last pair of boots before winter goes. As long as they’re Givenchy, natch. Read More...

Where I’m from, boat shoes are all-weather, all-season staples. The preppy ideal lives on in the American South, and when you combine that with mild winters, I’ve known plenty of people, both men and women who never send their Sperrys to the back of their closets to rest.

Time for a confession: it’s been a while since I’ve had a pedicure. In the past six weeks, New York City has racked up snowfall totals nearing five feet, and it was starting to seem like winter had moved in to stay.

We’re going to be staying home tonight to both avoid the Valentine’s Day crowds and slather ourselves with various and sundry lotions. Read More...

Not only am I a noted Prada fangirl, but I’m a lover of purposefully ugly shoes. (Those two things are related, probably.) In addition, I adore Prada’s weird face-painted runway bags, which requires both a really open mind and a willingness to wear things that other people think are really stupid. I should be the perfect consumer for the Prada Asymmetric Suede Sandals, which just arrived for pre-order at Neiman Marcus, but I am not. Read More...

You all know that the TalkShoes team loves kitschy, fun shoes, but for this edition of Want It Wednesday, things have taken a decidedly minimal direction. We don’t collaborate or compare our picks before submitting them to be compiled into a post, and sometimes we find out after everything is said and done that we’re all on the same wavelength.
