Confused by the resurgence of Birkenstocks? Don’t know what flatform sandals even are? This has all your answers about summer footwear trends! More
Well, the postal service stopped delivering mail on Sundays. I guess, since postmen are like elves with boundless work ethic, the postal service had to find a way to fill that time. So, your postman is now a clothing designer. Really. More
Oh, God. Okay, these are the shoes I wear pretty much every day: More
So we were outside TheGloss‘ Manhattan office last week and spotted a girl in Dr Martens (which we actively look for, apparently, because we’re still a friendless goth teenager). Upon looking a little closer, we realized they were actually a Dr Martens’ version of chelsea boots, which we had never seen and found kind of surprising. The short, suctioned ankle boot was a staple of the mod scene and enjoys a resurgence about every ten years–also! when spray-painted glossy white, they’re the unofficial shoe of the Stormtroopers in Star Wars–so we decided now would be a good time to go looking for a pair. While window shopping over the weekend, we then noticed approximately 60,000* other girls wearing Chelsea boots. …Which means we have an exploding trend on our hands. Moreover, an “It” shoe that’s walkable and practical is about the only kind we can get behind. So, without further ado… More
WWD filed a brief update yesterday on the launch of a summer collection for footwear brand Sazzi, yet nowhere in its 300 or so words does it mention that the shoes are outrageously ugly. Sure, it describes the styles, the price points, the eco-friendly materials… but it never breaks character and exclaims, “Holy fuck! These are the ugliest shoes of all time.” More
These boots were made for walking in very specific cities, clearly. The NYC version is pictures, but they’ve also made them for Miami, LA, and Vegas. They’re $800, which strikes us as pretty steep for anything but Louboutins, but they’re studded with Swarovski crystals. This pair is available at Ugg Australia stores in NYC. More
Okay, I’m going to put up some pictures of shoes, and you’re going to guess how much they’re worth. Spoiler: you’re wrong. You’re wrong every time. Because all of them have diamonds jammed in on them somewhere. More
Look! Friendship pins! I had literally forgotten about these until I saw this picture. Not like, “oh, I forgot about them, but I still thought about them every so often, like with snap bracelets.” No. I had completely and totally wiped these from my memory until the picture jogged them right back onto my life.
All I can hope at this point is that I hadn’t repressed these staples of 1980′s footwear because of some trauma that I associate with them, that will now come flooding back to me in all its horror. I’ll keep you posted.
It’s raining in Los Angeles, and that means that all anyone is talking about, anywhere, is the weather. It’s the lead-in for news stories. It’s the only appropriate topic of conversation at cocktail parties, none of which are happening because of the rain. It’s the cause of car accidents, power outages and rampant fear. Basically, all hell is breaking loose here in the City of Angels, and so, I would like to take what may be my last day on earth to talk about footwear.
Footwear, specifically, that is good for rainy weather. Here are some of my best finds: More
I never thought I’d see myself write this, but readers — I think I’ve found a clog that I might actually wear. Look at this! The thick wooden layers in the back make it non-clog-like and sexy More
Sometimes, when you have a full suitcase, the easiest way to pack is to wear your heaviest shoes and put your lightest in your suitcase. We’ve all been there. But security-line-wise…not to mention walking-through-major-airports-wise…it’s nice if you can don unenc … More
