Frisky reader Jackie was really coveting these Jeffrey Campbell wedges. They’re pretty, and delicate and have a sexy little peep toe. But what she didn’t love: the price. At $114, they were well out of her price range. So we searched high and low, and came up with several cute, inexpensive options. Each option offers something a little different, at a more pleasing price point. Check ‘em out after the jump!

Check out these awesome sneakers Nike just rolled out as part of its 2012 BE TRUE campaign in support of the LGBT community. The high-tops feature iridescent rainbow soles and the message “Be true” printed on the inside. Three different versions of the shoes, along with a BE TRUE hat and t-shirt, are being sold in New York, San Francisco, and Portland to acknowledge those cities as “progressive leaders of LGBT life.” Props to Nike for creating a pair of eye-catching kicks that draw attention to a really important cause. Supporting equal rights for all: just do it. [Laughing Squid]

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 »
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?

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]
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.
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]
