Crave: Toms Glitter Slip-Ons

All that glitters is…Toms? Toms, the manufacturer of those ultra-preppy kicks inspired by traditional Argentinean utility shoes, just put a twinkle in our eye with its shiny new model. The shoes now come in silver and gold glitter, but still have the traditional espadrille sole. Swap them for your dressy heels while the weather is still warm, and fashion is still casual.

Crave: Trixie Heels

The previous resident of my place must have been a shopaholic (takes one to know one), because that chick still crowds up my mailbox with all the catalogues she had sent here. Although I must admit, I thumb through them lustfully — even the crappy home furnishings one with mini stone waterfalls. As I was perusing the J.Crew fall mag, I spotted these beauties! Polka-dot-a-plenty, without being too retro. And that hot pink bow is, like, BAM! These Trixie Heels are sophisticated, yet they’ve still got spunk — just like my best gal pals. Now even my credit card wants to befriend them. [$248.00, J.Crew] Keep reading »

Crave: Devotte Shirley Sandals

If you aren’t already a devotee of Devotte (we’re oh-so-witty), you are sure to become one after seeing this pair of classy kicks. These white and gold t-strap sandals combine ruffles and studs for the perfect combo of girly detail and boldness. Plus, they’re a great alternative to the gold gladiator sandal craze (who wants to look like everyone else, anyhow?). [$338, Devotte.com] Keep reading »

Gross Guy Trend: The Medge

At the men’s fashion shows in Milan, an interesting new shoe style for men appeared: the male wedge, aka the “medge.” We hope Tom Cruise is the only one who adopts this style. (Sidenote: When you do a search for “male wedge,” Google says, “Did you mean: male wedgie“. Ha.) [The Times, U.K.] Keep reading »

Crave: High-Heeled Gladiators

Technically I am against the gladiator sandal trend. I think they look stupid on 90% of the population. But these high-heeled gladiators are something I can get behind because they’re not obnoxiously strappy, they give you some lift which counteracts the stumpy-leg affect of most strappy flats and they’re wedges, which means they are easy to walk in. Sold. [$89, NineWest.com] Keep reading »

Soon, You’ll Be Able To Create Your Own Energy

You know how your feet get tired when you walk a lot? Well, all that pounding might soon be used to generate electricity. Engineers calculated the amount of energy that the 34,000 travelers who pass through the Victoria Underground station in London generate every hour, and they say it’s enough to power 6,500 light bulbs if underground generators were installed. These yet-to-be-produced generators could be put into any place that has high foot traffic, as well as on roads and beneath railroad lines. While the technology is still in its infancy, similar mini-generators were tested by the American military recently. Do you think walking in flats or heels would generate more electricity?

Crave: Patricia Field Pumps

How does it get better than summer shoes designed by Sex and the City stylist Patricia Field? When they’re readily available nationwide and cheaper than Samantha! Payless Shoe Source has been upping their brand with name designers and their latest catch is New York’s finest fashionista. From classic gold pumps to silver sandals, Field’s shoes are chic and the prices fit anyone’s budget — from your lil’ sis to your best drag queen friend. [Jezebel]

Fashion Slideshow: Fun & Fancy-Free Flat Sandals

For whatever reason, we find that we wear heels more during winter than in any other season. When summer finally arrives, it’s like a breath of fresh air…for our hooves. Ahh, summer. Finally, a few months where we give our feet a break, put away the high-heeled pumps, and break out the flat sandals. Our toes are free to wiggle, are heels and arches are able to stretch out, and the dogs finally stop barking. While we totally love a traditional pair of flip-flops, from the dressed-down version (Havianas) to the dressed-up (bejeweled metallics from J. Crew), we’re psyched about all the other available flat sandals on the market. Ten of our favorites, after the jump! [Click the images for more information.] Keep reading »

Crave: Day-Glo Slides

These neon green slides ($10.40 from Old Navy!) probably don’t match any of your clothes, so they’ll go with everything. I don’t recommend painting your toes a bright color if you plan on wearing them because that would be totally ’80s and way too matchy-matchy. [OldNavy.com]
