    The Fendi shoes make me think of the jelly sandals that girls used to wear when I was 6.

    • StarburstLady

      This may be odd, but they kind of remind me of suspension bridges– in terms of that extra rod on the heel, I mean. I think it’s interesting.

  • NO to the shideous cowboy bootie-thing sandal. NO.

  • Emily Smith

    I adore the flats that tie around the ankle but I could never wear them with my short stubby legs. Alas.

    • MoHub

      I’d just cut off the ribbons and wear them as really cool ballets.

  • MoHub

    I see FLATS!

    • Jessica Freeman


    • Ginny Ellsworth

      The kitten heels aren’t bad except I’d trip over the cockroach killer toes.

  • SouthernGirlRena

    Cute, fun, quirky, funky, fabulous, a few clunkers but overall I like.

  • In_Stitches

    Ermanno Scervino knows how to make some classy, elegant shoes. They look expensive.

    • kimmeister

      They’re my faves too.

  • Kathryn Tewson

    I am happy to see flats and low heels like you have no idea. But Armani, for SHAME, why would you put a model in shoes so small her toes are all over the runway?

  • MilaXX

    What a mixed bag. Apparently fashion doesn’t care if the shoes don’t fit anyone. I feel bad for the models who had to walk in too small shoes. Of this lot I like most of these with the exception of the Andrea Incontri, those silly Dolce & Gabana shoes, the Gianfranco platforms that look difficult to navigate in and the Armani odd toe cut outs & weird heels.

    • Fannie Wolston

      And to see some of those tortured ankles, insteps and scars (blisters, chafing) up close, that’s hardcore fashion on the feet.

    • 3boysful

      Pucci, Armani and Gucci evidently all smoked something together.

  • I’m a sucker for ballerina ribbons, but none of the others really sing to me.

    • 3boysful

      Me, too, but they’re terribly impractical.

  • paintedfish

    I really like all except the toe spill shoes. Give me a kooky, chunky shoe any day.

  • boweryboy

    The Blugirl shoes are the only ones I like, but then again I’m a sucker for a classic kitten heel slingback. They remind me of my mother.
    The rest are fug.

  • marlie

    The Alberta Ferrettis and the Ermanno Scervinos are right up my alley. Ladylike and pretty. LOVE. I like the Etro shoes, too.

    • demidaemon

      Jinx on the first two. The Etro’s did not appeal to me, sadly.

  • bertkeeter

    Italians do shoes the bes!

    • kimmeister

      Even though I don’t like a lot of these, it feels like the most interesting selection we’ve seen featured here this year!

  • mjude

    i like the blugirl kitten shoes because i know its the only style i could manage to wear let alone walk in.

  • Jessica Freeman

    I like at least 2 of the collections…which is better than the previous 2 postings combined.

  • queeniethebold

    Love the Ferrettis and the Blugirls. It’s just so nice to see beautiful shoes that don’t look as if they’re foot-torturing devices and are just simple and gorgeous.

    The Guccis and Armanis are hideous to my eyes, plus it’s not helping that some of those toes and feet look absolutely GRODY. Eeeeew.

  • altalinda

    Too bad those kitten heels are so boring. I’m still praying for something that height to come back into fashion.

  • Fannie Wolston

    Fendi and Giorgio Armani, making feet look beautiful!

  • Joan Golann

    Dolce & Gabana with the face should belong in Katy Perry’s closet

  • The Ferretti’s bring out the little girl in me.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Oh, MAN! Love ’em! I don’t even wear heels anymore, but there’s not a single pair in here that I don’t love. IRONY!

  • JasmineAM

    As someone that has only been into fashion for about 2 years, has Dolce & Gabbana always been this repetitive with their lines? I guess it’s good to have a recognizable brand, but I feel like everything always looks the exact same.

    • majorbedhead

      They’ve become an “Of course” for me, so yeah, I’d say they’ve been pretty repetitive the last few seasons/years.

  • majorbedhead

    I love the Ferrettis and the heel shape on the Fendi line is really interesting.

  • Imasewsure

    The Fendis are interesting but the rest don’t move me one way or the other.

  • LOVE the Blugirl slingbacks!!!!!!…

    • me too. they are sooooo cute, i want to see them on the red carpet!

  • Kelly

    *ankle-strap love!* I’m gonna milk this trend while it lasts. And though I’m normally a tailored sort, I go all weak over ribbon ankle-ties. Adore them. There’s a lot to like here overall. I don’t love the Armanis or the Ginafraco Ferres, but the only shoes here that I actually detest are the Blugirls. Satin kitten-heeled slingbacks? Please, no. I expect to see them on a dithery matron flouncing around her boudoir in a pink chiffon muumuu with boa-feather trim.

  • Danielle

    A lot of crack-tastic going on there,

  • Daisy James

    Dolce and Gabbana are really dedicated to exploring new frontiers of ugliness, aren’t they?

  • alyce1213

    I’m in shoe heaven. With a few exceptions, these are making me happy.

  • Qitkat

    The Pucci print shoes jumped out at me only because I used to love his prints from days of yore.

  • crash1212

    Love the Fendi heel. Overall…never have I seen so many pinky toes making a run for it! Poor model feet, they must rival ballerina feet.

  • Feretti bring me all your flats!! Seriously love those!

    I really like the designs, but sometimes the feet in them are way distracting (I look at you, armani!)

  • AndreaSkates

    I have never seen such a collection of feet that need bigger shoes in all my life. Ugly Stepsisters, anyone? Is it really too much to ask that models be given shoes that hold ALL of their toes at the same time?

  • DuBey2

    Overall, I’m worried about all the pointy toes. I can handle heels, straps, etc but cannot wear the pointy toes. But I love to look at these:The blumarine white booty w/pointy toe and all the Emporio Armani. Good news for all the ladies with skinny toes! All but a few are certainly beautiful and live up to the high standard of Italian shoes. (Although I’m not sure they’re Italian just because they’re Showing in Milan)
    LOVED the Pucci’s the Gucci’s and the bottom two Scervino’s.
    I agree w/others – this may be the best of TLo’s RW shoe postings this spring.

  • DuBey2

    Love me some Fendi, but not with the Jelly(hate that feel)

  • Let it out

    I don’t understand the appeal of kitten heels. I associate them with the Queen Mum–they’re the shoes you wear when you’d really rather be comfy, but the occasion demands it.

  • jspark

    Loves those Armani cowboy boot sandals… just because cowboy boot sandals… laughing all the way to the outdoor music festival… hope it doesn’t rain.

  • formerlyAnon

    Whole lot of close-but-no-cigar. There are a handful I like, but I can’t call out a single designer’s grouping as something I’d get enthusiastic about as a whole.

    The fact that ankle straps are generally unflattering and specifically a dreadful idea for me, puts a number of otherwise nice shoes out of the running, I must admit.

  • demidaemon

    I like the Ferreti and Scervino’s the best. The Gucci’s aren’t awful but need to be deployed smartly. Everything else is either over-embellished, too flimsy, or just plain ugly.

  • of all the collections we’ve seen, by the city, i’d say milan takes it for the shoes. the scervinos are my favorites, and the emerald green ones take first place!
