Ask The Man Panel: “Hoth Fashion At Its Finest”

Free People is selling these post-apocalyptic-style platforms for $198. A little steep, sure, but I’m kind of taken with them — I love crazy footwear and would totally wear these with black tights and a summer dress. Wondering what guys think about strange shoes? Read on for reactions from our awesome Man Panel… Keep reading »

Butt-Toning Skechers Shape Up Sneakers Miiiiight Not Be Appropriate For Little Girls


We’ve all seen Kim Kardashian’s softcore porn for Skechers’ Shape Ups, the sneakers which claim to tone your ass (despite the health and fitness community calling BS on that one). Whatever, that’s what Kim Kardashian does in every commercial. But Skechers is also selling Shape Ups butt-toning sneakers for your little girl! Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Converse Hightop Sandal

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled. No one is going to buy this shoe and then every single pair you’ve produced is going to end up in a landfill somewhere. The phrase is “Earth first,” Converse, not “Hideous sandal/hightop hybrid first, Earth second.” Shame on you. [$40, Converse] Keep reading »

Prada Mary Janes Come With Their Own Legs

They were black patent leather with blue sequin details and, best of all, they had been marked down to 10 bucks. I scanned the stacks of boxes for a size 7, found one, slipped them on, loved them, and bought them. The time that elapsed between me squealing, “Look at those cute shoes over there!” to me owning those cute shoes over there was approximately 30 seconds.

Designer-Inspired Stacked Heels At A Pauper’s Price

Take a good look at this shoe. It is reminiscent of a number of different designer heels currently being featured in magazines and sold at expensive retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop. Amazingly, however, these stacked heeled sandals — which would look so cute with everything from skinny jeans to a floaty sundress — are from Target’s Mossimo brand and cost less than a hardcover book, a sushi dinner, and a date night at the movies. They are so cute and affordable that not buying them would be kind of silly. And you’re not silly are you? No. No you’re not. We’re not either. We’ll take one in each color.
