Style Guide: 6 Spring Shoe Trends To Stock Up On

I must have a heavy step, because I wear my shoes into the ground. The bad news about that is that I end up having to say goodbye to my favorite pairs before I’m ready. The good news is that means I have an excuse to shoe shop! And sure enough, all of my warmer…

Cheap & Chic: Jeffrey Campbell Wedges — For Less!

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 offer…

Style 911: Help Me Find The Perfect Wedding Shoes!

I’m going to a wedding in a few weeks and am recycling a dress I love that I’ve worn before (see photo). I want to buy a new pair of nude-colored shoes to wear with it, but would ideally like to find something that I could wear with other, more casual outfits throughout the summer.

Tie-Dye Shoes, Hippie Chicks Need Not Apply

Usually, I’d run away screaming from anything sporting a tie-dye pattern on it. But these Messeca Tie-Dye Coraline Platform Wedge happen to hit the sweet spot. They’re working the tie-dye hippie thing, sure, but in a decidedly high fashion way. The sleek wedge heel offsets any crunchy, hacky sack vibe, and the bright, cheery color…

Shopping Guide: A Gorgeous Shoe In Every Color

This week, we had the first little bit of winter snowfall in New York, and that got us thinking about how we’ll be trudging through another few months of sludge. Which is why we need some color, and stat! These shoes, when worn with dark tights, should do the trick. There’s a color for every…

Your Advice, Please: What Shoes Should I Buy?

The other day I was walking by my fave neighborhood boutique, the inimitable Raised by Wolves (soon, soon, they will have an online store, my darlings) and I spotted these fantastic 80%20 Seanne shoe in Kiwi. Being that I’m not yet over wedge shoes, I had to try them immediately, but unfortch, they didn’t have…

We’re really feeling printed shoes at the moment: They’re an easy way to make an outfit feel a little extra special.

Jeffrey Campbell, Are You Out Of Your Damn Mind?

Okay, I have had it with you, Jeffrey Campbell. Some of your shoes are great, but holy hell dude, most of your shoes are straight out of my disco tranny nightmares (yes, I have disco tranny nightmares). What are you thinking, with the platform, and the pleather, and the fringe and just so muuuuuuuuuch? Also,…

Would You Wear: Painted Space Shoes?

For $180, Etsy artist Sheriff Nasir will paint you a custom pair of space age wedge heels. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous, but I might be more tempted to display them on a shelf than actually wear them. How about you? Would you dare to wear the galaxy on your feet? [via tulletulle]…

An Open Letter To Wedge Heels

Dear Wedge Heels,

My whole life, I’ve wanted to be three things: “Sabrina the Teenage Witch,” a writer, and the kind of person who wears high heels everyday. I’ve failed mightily on the first count, done pretty well on the second, and the third, well, that’s a bit more complicated…

Her Fearful Asymmetry

Hello, sexy shoes! Spring is almost here and our shoe drive is through the roof. We’re coveting these Swooping Asymmetry Wedges designed by Matt Bernson. The luscious leather wedge says “sultry,” while the military -nspired canvas upper says, “I mean business.” They are comfortable to pound the pavement in and perfect to pair with skinny…

Booties To Carry You All Day Long

As sad as it might be, it’s time to start thinking about fall fashion. The look and price of these Gap Suede Wedge Booties should cheer you up, though. These booties have a fashionable wedge heel that makes walking (and possibly running) comfortable. But also the style is highly functional. You’ll be able to pair…

Wedges That Take Stripper Heels To New Heights!

Someone should tell the craftsman who whittled the lil’ pole dancer on these 7″ wedges that stripper heels are usually made of clear plastic. But, hey, whatevs. The $175 price tag on eBay is a steal for such an, um, unique item. (Although we’re pretty sure falling off 7″ tall shoes will break your neck.)…

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…
