Shoe Porn!

Okay – for the last few shoe porns, we’ve been heavily focused on boots. BUT – that’s not all that the fall/winter shoe season has to offer.

Boots are awesome, and honestly, I wish I had a dozen pairs, so I could wear a pair of boots every day (but not the SAME pair, obviously). However, I also enjoy other types of shoes.

Today’s focus is pumps that I can’t wear. But maybe you can, so yay!

Fall themes do not seem to change much from year to year (I ignore the trends I hate, makes it easier). (I also tend to ignore open-toed shoes this time of year because I live in Portland, and I like my feet to stay dry.)

We have a lot of metallics, animal prints, and, surprisingly, a lot of neutral colors sprinkled in.  Platforms seem to be big, as well as lace overlays (which are pretty, but not everyday shoes, of course). A big color trend this year seems to be purple, which makes me insanely happy. I have been craving a pair of purple shoes…probably won’t purchase any right now, because that would be impractical, but I will be drooling!

Here are a LOT of awesome shoes that I cannot wear.

Vince Camuto Momas

Purple! I also encourage you to follow the link & check out the heel detailing. I like!

Joan & David 'Flipp' Pump

I really like these. Simple. Shiny. Red. So classic & pretty.

Cynthia Vincent Nia

These are so cute – I love the lace-up detailing!

Nine West Ample

Again – purple! I love the platform, and the solid heel, too. (These also come in emerald green suede – I feel that I need to collect the whole set!)

Betsey Johnson 'Itsy' Pump

I love the lace detailing and the leopard print INSIDE the shoe. So pretty & feminine looking!

Badgley Mischka Humbee II

SPARKLES!!!  And open toes – fun holiday party shoes, though, right?

This pair of shoes seems to be inappropriately named….

Okay – it’s not ALL about you. I am planning on buying my feet a present for making it through surgery & recovery. However, due to the swelling in my foot, and my inability to wear high heels, I have decided to (temporarily) cross to the dark side and consider clogs. (That’s right, Carrie…you may now have your revenge!) Easy to slide my foot into. Not uncomfortable (from what I’ve heard).

Here are the two pairs I’m looking at:

Clarks® Unstructured 'Un.anise' Mule

These are red, which I like. They are not fancy, but I think I could wear to work. And they are probably comfortable and roomy enough for my swollen foot.

Clarks Artisan Collection 'Inca Amy' Mule

I almost have to get these, right? They have my name in them!

  1. I like the red clogs…probably because they are red. 🙂 And yes, if a shoe is named after you, you should go ahead and buy it. *Take that with a grain of salt because it’s not hard for me to come up with reasons to buy shoes.*

    Now I need to go home and count my boots…

  2. Those Moschinos are super cute. Now I can spend my workday looking for a truly cheap knockoff….

    Can you do clogs like these? Dansko is always good for “cute” clogs. Not sexy, no, but cute.

    • I almost feel like the Moschinos are supposed to be cheap knock-offs of Louboutins! (It’s the red heel that makes me think that – they really don’t look that much like Louboutins.) (Also – let me know if you find a cheaper pair.)

      Those clogs are cute, but I think not appropriate for fresh out of the boot shoes – maybe later…

      Oh no! Am I actually becoming a person who really thinks clogs are acceptable public footwear? I must lock myself in my closet with my stilettos immediately!

  3. I LOVE the red ones and the purple nine west ones. The problem—4 and 4.5 inch heels…damn I’d be 6’3!! That’s just a little ridiculous.

    • Perhaps next week, along with affordable shoes, I will feature some lower heeled shoes (since that’s what, practically speaking, I should be buying as well). 🙂
