A real pair of Christian Louboutin heels will set you back anywhere from $800 to $2000 (“A stupid pair of shoes should never cost the same amount as a fair condition ’95 Nissan Maxima!” — my dad), which means they’re not a realistic footwear option for most people. But hey, if the recession and crumbling global economy have taught us anything, it’s that a little creativity will get you far. Keep reading »

Double Agent Shoes Might Be The Best Invention Ever

Isn’t it annoying to have to carry a purse when you go out dancing or break into the Russian embassy to interrogate a high level government official? Don’t worry–a company called Bellona Fashions has come up with a clever–and stylish!–solution for you: double agent shoes.

Christian Louboutins Brings A Fairy Tale To Life With His Take On Cinderella

Nobody ever told us who designed Cinderella’s glass slipper, but if a contemporary version of the tale were to take place, Christian Louboutin would be a shoe-in for the job — so it’s only natural that Disney chose the French designer, known for his luxurious red-soled footwear, to create a modern-day take on the fateful shoe. Unveiled yesterday in Paris, the results are infinitely more practical than a heel constructed of, uh, glass: the shoe is actually made of a fine layer of lace and covered in a smattering of Swarovski crystals, including crystal butterflies. I totally would have preferred to see Louboutin create a pair of actual glass slippers, even if it meant they were unwearable. They would look just as pretty on display as they would on the foot of a future princess. Or, you know, a stripper named Princess. Or Shauna Sand. [Fashionista]

A lot of fur, especially. Read More »

Kim, you look great in this cape and Lestat blouse! It’s awesome! You might even be wearing less makeup these days! Probably not though. I have one serious, serious conundrum, though, and that is pant-boots. Are these pant-boots, like you had on the other day? Is it pants, tucked into open-toed boots? Why do open-toed boots exist? Where are you getting all of these pant-boots? Is there a store for that? Is it DW Kanye West? Is Kanye enabling this? Worse still, is he encouraging it? Is a line of pant-boots your next business venture? … Hey, don’t get any ideas. Pant-boots are not, and never will be, a thing. I hope. But then again, I also said the same thing about you. You see how that turned out.

A Shoe With Curve Appeal

I’ve had my eye on these Rachel Comey wooden wedge sandals for a hot minute. I love the subtle curve of the wooden wedge and the unexpected grey suede and leather color combo. But they’re like, prohibitively expensive. Even on sale, the shoes cost a pretty penny, which is why I’ll have to continue to love them from afar. Someday, my sweets, someday. Not all Craves are meant to be satiated. [$298, Rachel Comey]

Jeremy Scott’s latest collaboration with Adidas Originals yielded these craaaazy super-high-top wedge sneakers with butterfly wings, due to hit stores in August. I’m actually kind of obsessed with them, but when I asked Amelia if she would wear them she replied, “Yes. To a rave I went to in 1998.” Damn, too true. So, what do you think of these silly sneakers? Would you ever wear them? [Facebook]

Sorry guys, but Bon Iver just gives me the douchechills, especially after I read a bunch of Bon Iver Erotica. That’s why these shoes that Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver, designed are really making me feel uncomfortable. Yes, they’re for a good cause — sales of the shoes benefit the Best Friends Animal Society — but Bon Iver makes me want to die inside a little bit. The shoes are currently on pre-order, and will ship in October, just in time for Bon Iver to release another album about fireflies, hidden love notes and ugh, artisanal goat cheese. Of course, they’re sold in sizes for both men and women, because Bon Iver is for gender parity and believes all beings are created equal. [$75, The Keep]

It’s my belief that every woman should have at least one pair of totally superfluous-just-for-fun-ridiculously-over-the-top shoes. And if they’ve got a crazy platform heel on them, even better. Crazy big shoes make you feel taller, and more able to conquer the world. And if you’re feeling kind of whatever about your outfit, putting on a pair of wild platforms can totally elevate your look from just okay to supermodel status. After the jump, 15 pairs of fun platform sandals to make you feel 10 feet tall.
