After her show, Gucci creative director Frida Giannini reported to Vogue that the brand’s latest collection is all about “real clothes for real women,” and the Fall 2014 Gucci Shoe Collection exemplifies just that. These boots were nostalgic of the sixties, and many were knee-high and made in either python or patent leather. Styling played a clever role during this runway show, as it looked like some of these boots may have been ankle length, but the pants were simply pulled over the knee-high boots to simulate that effect.

I am, admittedly, not a sequin girl. In the TalkShoes offices, as you might imagine, Katherine takes that title. What I am, though, is someone who appreciate ultra-modern finishing, particularly when applied to a traditional shoe or when coming from a traditional brand, and that’s why I’m really into the Gucci Ali Sequin Ballet Flats.

Ballet flats aren’t the non-heel shoe of choice in fashion at the moment (although, come to think of it, the simple ballerina is probably due for an ultra-chic revival any minute now) and have never been my personal favorite, so the combination of the shape and sequins should put me off in this situation.

When online shopping is a major part of your job description, you see some very interesting shoes. There are some shoes you see that you can’t get out of your head for days, and then there are some shoes you see that you truly wish you could erase from your memory. When it comes to these Gucci Coda High Top Satin Colorblock Sneakers, I just can’t. Read More…

Blake Lively recently kicked off the first day of Milan Fashion Week by showing up at the Gucci Spring 2014 show in a mustard yellow leather Gucci dress which, let’s face it ladies, basically put us all us to shame. We’re guessing her beautiful bronze heels are also Gucci, though we couldn’t find any proof of this via our extensive online research. Read More…

Yesterday it was the beloved birthday of one of my favorite models, none other than the beautiful Cara Delevingne. While doing my daily shoe stalking, I stumbled upon the most perfect birthday present for the spunky 21-year-old, these Gucci Brooklyn Monogram Star Print Leather Sneakers. Of course, if we were best friends (which I’m sure we were in a past life), I would have totally bought them for her because they’re screaming her name; since we’re not, I’ll just pretend.

Gucci is a name that likely still inspires images of Tom Ford-era obvious sexuality in many fashion lovers, but over her thoroughly successful tenure at the brand, Frida Giannini has gone about changing that obviousness into something far more subtle and even, at times, ladylike. The shoes of Gucci Fall 2013, available now for pre-order at Neiman Marcus, represent the brand’s growth beautifully. Read More…

Shoes, especially modern designer shoes, are an exercise in design extremes. How high can a heel be before the human foot can’t handle the pitch of a shoe’s sole? How tall can a platform be before everyone falls over? How high can we make a boot shaft before it’s basically a pair of pants? In the past few years, nearly all of those questions have been answered by some kind of high-profile footwear master (usually Christian Louboutin), and with this Gucci Victoire Buckle Sandal, we’ve answered yet another one – how minimalist can a stiletto really be?

Just last week I was applauding Kim Kardashian for wearing reasonable Balenciaga flats while pregnant instead of mile-high platform pumps, but it seems this week she’s strapping herself back into the stiletto-heeled strappy Gucci Patent Ankle Cuff Sandals. Here she is rocking Gucci (and that burgeoning baby bump) all over NYC, doing Kardashian-type things, of course. Regardless of the context, I do love these shoes – especially that iconic Gucci horsebit. Read More…
