Dogs may be a man’s best friend and diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but shoes are a woman’s love. Fortunately, we’re not limited to just one “sole mate” or we’d all be cheaters. When it comes to women and their shoes, it’s definitely a “the more the merrier” situation. The past year or so, shoe designers have taken their creativity to new and great heights with outrageous trends, abstract shapes, and sky-high heels. These sexy shoes may not be for everyday wear, but they are driving everyone wild. Now, let’s take a look at some of the most fabulous of the fabulous shoes that need to magically appear in our closets this Fall.
Shoe designer Ruthie Davis dazzles us with her new shapes and spunky accents. Take these strappy Horizon heels in black, gunmetal, and rose gold for example. Davis’ shoes have been seen on dozens of celebrities including Fergie, Beyonce, Pink, and Jennifer Lopez. Don’t worry, though. You don’t need to be a pop star to find them. Try Neiman Marcus and Kitson for some Davis-wear or have a little peek at the latest collection on ruthiedavis.com ($995).
This beyond-hot heel-less masterpiece is sure to make a statement anywhere with its edgy rhino horn detail. Designer Noritaka Tatehana knows how to make jaws drop, which is probably why Lady Gaga is a dedicated wearer of Tatehana’s ambitious designs. Visit the Tatehana boutique via their website ($10,000 and up).
Who doesn’t love Swarovski crystals? These Massimo Dogana boots are drop-dead amazing. The turned up toe and high heel are great additions to this crystal-accented wonder. Their website is currently “under construction” but wipe those tears, you can find Dogana shoes on other sites like gregoryshoes.com ($1495).
Known for his high arches and sculpted heels, Gil Carvalho has succeeded once again with this grommet covered marvel. The curved heel and buckled accents add even further edge to the piece. Take a look at Carvalho’s catalogue here.
Talk about a “teeze”. This Bordello Teeze heel by PleaserUSA is sexy and is a great addition to your wishlist this Fall. Wine colors are definitely in fashion, so this burgundy-colored, floral satin shoe is just what the Style Doctor ordered. The raised texture on the outside of this shoe is out of this world and the hidden platform makes for a smooth, finished look ($140).
Recently spotted on Kim Kardashian at NY Fashion Week, Thierry Mugler's Chau Ankle Strap Pony Shoes are 8-inch heels from heaven. Also available in baby blue shades and a blue leather variation, you can get a little closer to these babies at openingceremony.com ($2715).
