PORN!!!

When doing exhaustive, lengthy searches for the latest & greatest in shoe trends, it’s important to take into account the fashion shows.  (Actually, I have no idea if it’s important or not – it just seemed like a good idea on Monday, when I was conducting my research.)

On the NY Magazine fashion area, you can search by article of clothing, season, gender, color, trend & designer.  When looking at all shoes for women in Fall 2008, you get the following popular trends:

Out of a field of 11,000 shoes:

Materials

  • 955 are leather
  • 49 are velvet
  • 18 are “skins”
  • 11 are fur

Styles/Influences

  • 22 are Rock
  • 18 are Fringe (bleh)
  • 12 are Goth

Colors & Prints

  • 5,127 black & 1,013 brown (of course)
  • 457 grays
  • 432 metallics
  • 393 white/cream (for fall?  really?)
  • 353 red (that’s more like it)
  • 324 beige/khaki (again, bleh)
  • 188 green
  • 114 purple
  • 111 prints/patterns
  • 104 pink

What I really want to see is a metallic fur fringe shoe.  However, doing a Google image search turns up some rather disturbing images, as well as pictures of Sharon Stone.  And this:

We discussed the fringe last week, and nothing short of a bribe would make me walk down that path again.  But, since it’s not shoe porn Wednesday without some shoe porn, I will give you the prettiest shoe that I’ve seen this week:

And, because apparently I’m a hater, with the ugliest shoe I’ve seen in a long time (and further proof that buying a Rachel Zoe pick is just stupid – she also endorsed the Pocahontas boot):

A bargain at only $475

  1. Just catching up. Love the red shoes. So hot.

  2. I *heart* shoes. You are making me salivate, especially those red ones. This meeting is killing me…totally going to go over 9pm—BOO! I will be cranky in the morning.

  3. Couldn’t view the pics at work … I’ll just have to take your word that the shoes are ugly.

  4. Yeah, I like the red ones but those last ones are pretty terrible.
