Fashion can be art, right? And in the case of the shoes featured in Leipzig, Germany’s Grassi Museum, the art is decidedly avant garde. The museum’s new exhibition, Radical Shoe Design. The show includes more than 200 pairs of wildly designed shoes that challenge traditional notions of style, comfort and wearabilty — so of course we love them. If you’re in Leipzig, check out the whole collection. For now, we’ve collected 11 of our favorite weirdbeard pairs for your enjoyment!

So we wanted to show you the latest in spring footwear trends, but we didn’t want to do it in the typical boring way. Enter hot celeb dudes wearing spring footwear (for the ladies, obviously). Enjoy as James Franco, Bradley Cooper and a slew of other celebrity guys model the latest kicks!
Okay, so I’ve been vegan for about a year (vegetarian for around 20), and I’ve got to admit, I still wear leather shoes. I guess I always imagined that vegan, faux-leather shoes would be some kind of hippie nightmare. But then I discovered Moo Shoes — a NYC-based shoe store that specializes in animal-friendly footwear and products. And guess what? Vegan shoes can still be totally cute. Check out these awesome and totally chic vegan shoes.
I don’t know about you, but my summer sandals often get totally destroyed. So I’ve resolved to not spend too much on them this year. After all, they’re going to be headed to the beach, to the park, tubing and all manner of other not-very-hospitable places with me, so they should be ready to get wrecked. But hey, they should still look cute, too. I don’t want no stinkin’ four-inch platform nightmares, either. So that’s why I’ve found 12 pairs of perfectly cute, perfectly affordable sandals — all under $25. Check ‘em out!
We’ve got expensive taste, but don’t have the wallet to match. So while we’ve been salivating over the Spring 2012 shoe collections, it’s unlikely that we’ll ever be able to afford even a small wedge of a McQueen wedge any time soon. That’s why we’ve done our due diligence and found a vast array of designer lookalikes at a fraction of the cost. These shoes mimic the designs of the latest Altuzarras, Casadeis and 3.1 Phillip Lims — but at a fraction of the cost. Click through, and happy shopping.

I fell in love with oxford shoes in London, where you can’t throw a Cornish pasty down the street without hitting a pair (not that anyone was throwing Cornish pasties, but you get the idea). I love the vintage, masculine vibe they bring to every outfit, from dresses and tights to wool trousers and cardigans. Here are some awesome oxford options to work into your winter wardrobe, and the best part? They’re all 50 bucks or less…
For as long as we can remember, we’ve lived by the philosophy that you can tell a lot about a man by his choice in footwear. But lately, we’ve been ogling men’s shoes sartorially, rather than with a love connection in mind. Even though our feet are too small for most men’s footwear, we couldn’t help but put together some of the sneakers, boots, and shoes we wish we could wear. Here are 12 shoe options for the men of The Frisky.
Cuffed pants are having a moment, but now that it’s chilly ankles need a little warmth. So swap your plain sweat socks and trouser socks for these cute, stripe, and argyle socks that will look sweet peeking out between your pants and shoes.
“I like flats and I adore a high heel, but I don’t love a kitten heel. It’s neither here nor there. And the one shoe I will never wear is sneakers.”
–New mom and style czarina Rachel Zoe on her hatred of kitten heels and sneakers. I am so with you on this one. Unless I am on the soccer field or at the gym (I am never at the gym), you will never catch me in a rubber soled sneaker shoe type jawn. [FYI, I had to look up the word "jawn." Apparently, it's a slang word people from Philly -- aka Julie -- use that means "thing." Like "joint" in New York or whatever. -- Editor] Nuh-uh. [People Style Watch] Keep reading »
