Designer Shoes: Reviews and Discussion

Carvela Kurt Geiger

I’m a big fan of Carvela Kurt Geiger shoes for many reasons; they’re stylish and unique in design, they’re great quality, and they are reasonably priced. I’m especially loving these biker boots, and I’m not a biker boot girl, however this year will be a first. The strap wrapping around the shaft and the lock and key details give these boots the “it” factor that make for a must have. Pair with skinny denim or leather leggings for a super cool look. Black leather with gold tone hardware and buckle, these designer shoes have padlock, key and chain details. They have a rubber, lugged sole and leather in-sole. The heel measures 1.75 inches with .6 inch platform. $290Available here.

Casadei Strappy Knee Boots

There is sexy, and there is bondage inspired, S&M dominatrix. I lean toward the former, and while these Casadei boots aren’t something I could see in my wardrobe, I think they could look really good with certain looks. Leather leggings and a billowy button down, for example. The casual top and tonal bottom makes for a seamless transition to these very “look at me” boots. As long as there’s not a lot of skin shown when you’re wearing them, these boots can be a chic addition to your fall wardrobe (but leave the whip at home). Black leather belted knee boots, these designer shoes have gold tone hardware, an open toe and a blade heel. They have a leather sole and in-sole. The heel measures 4.75 inches with a .75 inch platform. $1,900 Available here.  

I would have never pegged these lace pumps as a Nicholas Kirkwood design, because his usual bold style elements are missing. No, these shoes are demure and pretty, and while I love his fem fierce signature style, I also really like these pumps. We see a lot of lace pumps this time of year, but not a lot of red lace pumps. These are ¬†great shoes that are on trend for the season, but from a unique approach so your style doesn’t look like everyone else. Red lace pumps with a pointed toe, these designer shoes radiate with lady like sensuality. They have a gold tone stiletto heel that measures 4 inches. They have a leather sole and in-sole. $804 Available here.  

Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals

Fringe is definitely on trend this season, and no place more than footwear. From heavy all-over fringe to more subtle details, the embellishment is eye catching and somewhat playful. These Giuseppe Zanotti sandals are a great year round buy, with suede straps and a crystal embellished fringe, they would look great with leather leggings and a T or an LBD. Black suede sandals with a fringe front, these designer shoes can make just about anything look good. They have a leather sole and in sole, and an adjustable buckle closure at the ankle strap. The heel measures 5 inches with a .5 inch platform. $2,150 Available here.  

I can’t imagine a summer day cool enough to wear these gorgeous boots here in Texas, but in early spring or vacation in a cooler climate, these boots would get a lot of wear. I love the movement from fringe on any shoe, but it’s extra pronounced when it’s going up half your leg. All that movement is very eye-catching, combined that with the bright white leather and these boots are bona fide head turners. Wall flowers need not apply. White leather with fringe on the outer side and an open toe, these designer shoes are white hot. They have a leather sole and in sole. The heel measures 5 inches with a .25 inch platform. $1,695 Available at LUISAVIAROMA.COM.  

There’s a lot going on with these Cynthia Rowley sandals; gold hardware and studs, multi color stingray embossed leather, metallic brocade and multiple straps. However, they don’t look like a hot mess, not paired with a simple, solid colored outfit that is. These sandals have vintage vibe with the wide toe, the cylinder shaped heel, and wide straps that are thicker in the middle. Everything else screams modern glamour, but the combination of the style and design give these shoes a very unique look. These Cynthia Rowley statement sandals are a mix of metallic brocade and stingray-embossed leather, sprinkled with studs and finished with buckled straps. They have a leather sole and in-sole. The heel measures 4.25 inches. $410 Available here.
