As we look ahead to all the new shoes that await us in 2015 (just think back to our coverage of Aquazzura’s or Gianvito Rossi’s Spring 2015 collections), I can’t help but think of some shoes that got away from me in 2014. Simple sandals had a major moment this past summer, so it’s no wonder I was yearning for a pair.
Street style stars and celebrities on the red carpet donned these minimalist sandals that, ironically, made quite an impact. While the Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal won my heart this summer, there was still one other simple sandal that I couldn’t stop thinking about: the Sergio Rossi Juno Embellished Suede Sandals.
Between the architectural heel, the luscious suede, and my favorite, the toe strap crystals–this had a little bit everything I wanted in a shoe and more. This sandal was fierce while somehow still coming across dainty and also the fact that it was a beauty just to look at.
Even though I look at and write about shoes constantly, I have yet to become immune to shoe lust. I remember searching for this Sergio Rossi sandal on sale in the weeks after I found it, and it ended up slipping away with the many (many) shoes I wish I’d purchased in 2014. Some of my other regrts include the Gianvito Rossi PVC and Glossed-Leather Pumps, the Rochas Embellished Metallic Flats and the Nicholas Kirkwood Suede Pumps–and that’s just to start.
I’m sure I’m not the only one with a running list of shoes that got away this past year. Share your thoughts in the comments!
