Knockoff Police: ModCloth Vs. Charlotte Olympia’s Cat Flats

At $725, Charlotte Olympia’s cat flats aren’t exactly in our budget. But believe you me, we would love to own the same shoes as Beyoncé. So we were delighted —if slightly guilty — to see these kittycat flat knockoffs over on ModCloth. They’re significantly less fancy, but arguably just as cute. Winona’s been noodging me to buy a matching pair all morning and I just might do it! [Left: $725, Charlotte Olympia at Moda Operandi; Right: $32.99, ModCloth

If you’ve ever owned a pair of Converse sneakers, you’ve experienced the long and arduous process of breaking them in. It can take six months to a year of daily wear to get them softened up and perfectly molded to your foot, at which point you can enjoy a brief window of sneaker self-actualization before a hole appears in the sole and you have to buy a new pair and start over. Converse addicts will tell you this is all part of the Converse experience, but apparently not everyone has the time or energy to break in their shoes. Enter Converse’s aptly titled “Well Worn Collection,” a new line of sneakers that are scuffed up, dirty, and worn-in, right out of the box. Keep reading »

The Toe Plow Might Be The Best Invention Ever

It’s officially spring, but many parts of the country are still blanketed with snow. Want to cut through the slush in style? Try a toe plow, which is exactly what it sounds like: a tiny snow plow that attaches to the toe of your shoe. Apparently you can make your own toe plow with some PVC pipe and a couple of dog collars. Can you imagine if this caught on, and every morning crowds of people shuffled to work wearing little toe plows? That’s the world I want to live in. [Instructables via Neatorama]

There’s Always Money In The Banana Shoe Stand

Ha! You thought I was going to make a joke about stepping on a banana peel, didn’t you? But no, instead, I’ll just say that these platform heels are rather appealing. Made by Scarlet Fever Footwear, a bespoke shoe shop in London, these babies definitely look slippery.

Looking for a pair of shoes that you can put on with anything and spice up your entire wardrobe? Look no further than these amazing handpainted Sriracha pumps from Hourglass Footwear. Inspired by the beloved red bottles of hot sauce and painted by a team of Seattle artists, you can also get your Sriracha footwear in the form of flats, stilettos, or mid-height heels. At $200 a pop for the platform heels (flats are $130), they’re not cheap, but for true fans of the red rooster, they’re well worth it. [$200, Hourglass]

The Perfect Hot Pink Sandals For Spring

I came across these Sofft sandals while rounding up links for the comfortable heel guide, and I was instantly smitten by their ridiculously bright pink straps and 70s-style wood platform. I want to wear them with my favorite black jersey dress and big vintage sunglasses to wander around the farmer’s market and feel really chic and stylish until I step in a puddle of melted snow cone and immediately regret wearing my favorite shoes outside of the house. At $100, they’re about twice as much as I usually spend on shoes, but I might have to make an exception (or engage in some shameless birthday begging). [$105.95, Sofft]

I am known for being cool, calm and collected under duress. But that all goes out the window when duress involves a spider. Especially a big spiders. Growing up, sometimes you’d open a closet and there’d be a big one with long hairy legs staring right back at you. So I have to say these otherwise-cute, blue, vegan sandals bedecked in a faux-jeweled spider fall firmly in the “Do Not Want” camp. I don’t think I could handle it if I looked down and saw two big spiders on the tops of my feet. [ModCloth]

My appreciation of Vans may very well be one of the final vestiges of my time as an erstwhile teenage skater-dater. I relish a good pair of the classic skate sneakers: they’re cool and comfortable, and my favorite well-worn white pair goes with everything from rolled-up jeans to summer dresses. Kenzo has teamed up with the brand for three years in a row, releasing limited-edition runs of classic Vans styles decked out in their own intricate florals and splashy prints inspired by looks off the runway. This spring’s jungle-inspired collection pays homage to the Japanese fashion house’s roots — Kenzo Takada, the brand’s namesake, first rose to notoriety when he opened his first Parisian store, Jungle Jap, in 1970. The shoes hit stores and e-commerce on March 15 and are priced at $125. I’m still kicking myself for missing out on the past two collabs, so this might just be the season I finally spring for a pair. $125 is definitely pricey for sneakers, but because they’re a punchy spin on familiar animal prints, I like to think of them as being borderline classic… which makes them an investment piece, right? Those yellow and blue slip-ons are calling my name. [Refinery29]
