    Feminine, flirty, fun footwear.  What’s not to fawn over?

  • zenobar

    I kind of want to collect ’em all. 

  • Sobaika

    Mixed bag for me – many are gorgeous but a few look suited specifically to editorials, not real world.

    • I could see some of the more “fashion-forward” lady stars wearing some of them. I’m thinking Gaga, Solange Knowles…

      • NC_Meg

         Solange, for sure. I’m also thinking Katy Perry (although she’s been awfully demure lately) and Emma Stone.

    • SassieCassy

      i love love all of these but yeah i can see how it might be difficult to wear a robins egg blue and neon green winged half pump or w/e

      • MilaXX

         I have a dress they would work with.

      • mightbewrong

        I’d wear the hell out of that pair in particular!

  • I need to have so many of these shoes.  For my, uh, lady friend who wears shoes like these.  In a ladies’ size 14.

    Oh, who am I kidding?

  • alyce1213

    My heart soars — nothing I like better than arty shoes.  These are glorious.

  • All these are pretty much Faboo. None of them really work with a kilt, though. Sighing.

    • StellaZafella

       Awww c’mon … wouldn’t that give credence to your moniker: “KiltdnTILTD”?

      I think the looped heels would put real spring in your step tossin’ the cabor!

      • It would certainly create a strong visual impression. The visible equivalent of a steady scream. lol

        • Chickadeep

           Clearly shoe #2 is kilt-ready!

          • Just trying to envision my bunion laden tootsies peeking out of those shoes from under a kilt.

            Hee hee

  • PastryGoddess

    I’ll take one of everything please

  • Minus the huge platform pump, I love all of them. Totally impractical for us mere mortals, but they are pretty awesome.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t like the hokey puck platforms, but the rest are nice and I would cut somebody for those blue/chartreuse ones.

  • Deac82

    He certainly isn’t playing it safe.

  • Jangle57

    I appreciate the shoes as artwork but my feet would not appreciate having to wear them – not that it matters, given that I was ‘blessed’ with a wide foot

  • Some of these are seriously wackadoo, but j’adore the 3rd- and 4th- to-last pairs. 

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    LOVE these!  They’re totally impractical for me (I’m a flats girl), but I love the look of them.  They’re beautiful.

  • mightbewrong

    It’d be easiest to list the ones I DON’T want.

  • Imasewsure

    Beautiful but most of them look like they should be made of sugar and placed on the top of upscale cupcakes not worn

  • ankali

    Drooling, these are so very pretty. I do wonder how they look from the front, though; it’s generally pretty easy to make a shoe’s side view look good.

    I really like the accordioned, springy heels; I keep imagining myself using them to pogo around everywhere!

  • crash1212

    Am not digging the squared off heels, but the rest are really interesting and pretty. I would kill for the 12th pair down.

  • Judy_J

    Little works of art!

  • StellaZafella

    I really love all of the curly cut spikes sans toe platforms… but my weak old ankles are saying: “I dare you…I just DARE you!”

    • l_c_ann

      Do an SJP search, she gave an interview last week  in which she reported her feet telling her almost the very same thing.

  • Do my eyes deceive me? Beautiful, colorful, fantastico shoes with a medium heel? I am in love!

    • MilaXX

       I was shopping last weekend and there were loads of medium heels AND kitten heels that were really, really cute. I got my eye on a Calvin Klein pair.

  • These are sitting shoes. After you have your brawny young men carrying your sedan chair into the club….!

    (Drat Disquis! This was supposed to be a response to Ms. StellaZafella)

  • kimmeister

    They are certainly eye-catching.  I don’t like any of the ones with laces, but I could rock the blue/aqua ones, the black/silver pair, and the last ones.

  • Cathy S

    You know, I can’t wear heels. But these shoes are really fabulous, and make me sad I can’t wear heels.

  • I LOVE the 4th and 5th from the bottom- I’d be all over them! 

  • RocknRollmom

    This can be my exhibit A in my defense of why I “need” shoes like a fish needs water.  Or if anyone needs a “fashion as art” example.  Stunning.  Each and every pair.  Even when I don’t necessarily like specifics (the lower squared chunky heel or the hockey puck on the sole), they are still beautiful pieces of art.  Sigh.  Need that lotto win.

  • marilyn


  • These all look like amazing, gorgeous works of art…on their own. But I have to wonder how they’ll look on feet. Specially the cut-outs–they’re so busy and sometimes an overload of detail on the foot can look unnattractive.

    But they’re amazing to look at.

    • ampg

      I’m with you – I suspect some of the more intricate cutouts would turn from delicate to clunky once they’re surrounding a foot.  Which is too bad, because they’re so beautiful.

  • I love these so, so, so much.

  • MaryanneGirl

    Just pieces of art. Absolutely stunning!

  • Beautiful.  Gorgeous.  Wish you were here.

  • FOURTH DOWN. *crosses self*

  • Want all of this, please. 

  • Kate Lorenz

    I’m not usually that excited about shoes, but wow, these are stunning and I want them!  The feel a little art nouveau to me, maybe?  The last pair is my favorite.

  • Gorgeous to look at.

  • Airkisses


  • Love! Love! Love!

  • The second last one needs to belong to me.

  • BrightsideSusan

    I am gratified to see some moderate heeels for a change.

  • Trisha26

    As works of art, yes, as shoes, no.

  • i can see them going very well – and very badly – on the red carpet.

  • libraangel

    FAB_U_LOUS! But I don’t like the wee heels

  • quiltrx

    These are beautiful!  There’s usually something about the more ‘architectural’ shoes that I don’t care for…too clunky, too severe, too heavy, too something.  But these look pretty great just sitting there.  Can’t wait to see them in action.

  • j_anson

    Ugh, it’s like all accessories lines in the world are obsessed with gimmickry lately.

  • lrhg

    I’ll take all but the fourth one, thankyouverymuch.

  • kikisayshi

    A couple of these are cray but I love them! Especially the first pair!!

  • These are all kind of fabulous. 

    Looking at them made me think there should be designer shoe trading cards…..a new series each month…..packed in boxes of granola bars or something since nobody makes those awful flat slices of bubble gum anymore.  Think of the fun to be had at pajama parties, or lunches.  Think of how trading cards with your friends (“I’ll give you 2 Jimmy Choos for that Charlotte Olympia”) could ease the grind of Fashion Week, and make the time fly between shows.  And autographs!  And stats on the reverse side!  (# of celebrity sightings per season, etc.)  Who wants to invest in a startup?

  • boweryboy


    They’re overdesigned to within an inch of their shelf life.  And no to the chunky heel.  Just…no.


  • These are all delightful. I will heartily applaud any little starlets who appear in any of these. 

  • BuffaloBarbara

    I don’t think I’d want to wear them for several hours on my feet behind the reference desk, but, dang, aren’t they pretty to look at?

    (Random question from someone whose own shoe purchases are considered extravagant at anything upward of $40 at Payless: Those loopy heels look both fragile and custom for the collection.  If you step wrong on a cobblestone, can you take it to be repaired as part of the fairly exorbitant original cost, or is it a second fairly exorbitant cost?  This is a large reason why I’d be afraid to buy expensive shoes. Inquiring minds want to know, without actually putting down the money to find out.)

    • amf0001

      these are not for walking on cobble stone,  these are only for walking from the car to the restaurent, preferably on a carpet.

  • I would wear the hell out of these everywhere, whether or not I had a reason.

  • PeggyOC

    So.  Much.  Want.

  • kategs

    I love so many of these but am very over those awful platforms.

  • hellkell

    Frumpy, over-designed, and painful looking. PASS.

  • Therese Bohn

    I probably couldn’t wear these for more than 2 minutes, but I love the aqua and lime ones, they make a great sculptural display. And I always like filigree cutouts.

  • Indigo54


  • Great shoes!

  • fairy tale-y, so pretty

  • second and the eighth… especially the eighth… I will just have to resort to look at them cos I have not been wearing heels like forever!

  • librarygrrl64

    Very whimsical. 🙂

  • Those aren’t just shoes – they’re sculpture.
