Designer Shoes: Reviews and Discussion

These sandals are pure Kirkwood, the multi media prints, the cut outs, and the general eye-catching nature of them are what we have come to expect from the talented designer. While technically they were co-created with Peter Pilotto, you can tell the design was heavily influenced by Nicholas Kirkwood. Incongrous patterns and oversized eyelet lace ups somehow work on these shoes. Typical Kirkwood manages to pull it all together and make sense of what would be a mess under anyone else’s design. The result is an artsy statement sandal that will top the “what’s hot” list in many fashion corners. Patterned patent leather with lace up details and an open toe and all over cut outs, these designer shoes will turn heads no matter what you wear them with. They have a leather sole and in-sole. The heel measures 4 inches. $1,298 Available at mytheresa.com.

There’s nothing overtly striking about these Michael Kors wedge sandals, but I really, really like them. They’re the kind of shoe that I would wear a lot in my day to day activities. They’re neutral and would go with practically everything, the wedge heel isn’t back breaking, the ankle strap keeps your feet from slipping too far forward, and they’re adorable. As much as I love a killer pair of statement shoes, a girl needs practical, yet stylish, shoes for all the kid activities and other minutiae that comes with being a mom. Snakeskin embossed black leather with zebra print cowhide, these designer shoes have a zipper closure at the back ankle. They have a a 3.75 inch wedge heel, a lightly padded in-sole and a leather and rubber sole. $325 Available here.

Charlotte Olympia doesn’t specialize in ultra feminine, pretty shoes, but when she does them her designs can’t be beat in terms of beauty. These sandals are so gorgeous I wouldn’t know whether to put them on display or wear them. Wearing them to a social function might not be the best idea, because I would literally be staring down at my feet all night. The pale peach color is close enough to nude that they would seamlessly blend with bare skin and offer the same leg elongating effect, while the silk floral appliques offer a romantic twist and the skinny ankle strap adds a little sex appeal. They’re everything I love in a shoe rolled into one pretty little package. Pale peach colored leather sandals with an open toe and silk floral appliques at the toe and ankle strap, these designer shoes will no doubt add beauty to your summer […]

Fishnet Sandals? I love it! These shoes are all about illusion, with a fishnet upper, cut outs galore, and a curved half wedge they are absolutely hypnotizing. The snakeskin trim and wedge blend seamlessly with the vamp, while the cut outs and shortened wedge make the heel look perilously high and extremely flattering. While there’s a lot going on with this shoe, it’s really just a black and white sandal that will give serious style to many summer looks. Leather, snakeskin and textile sandals with multiple cut outs and an open toe, these designer shoes have a shortened wedge heel that give the illusion of a heelless shoe. They have an adjustable strap at the ankle, a leather sole and in-sole. The heel measures 4.75 inches. $1,050 Available at Shopbop.com.

Whenever I see something remotely similar to a gladiator sandal I have to see it on to decide if I like it. I wasn’t sure about these Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, but now I’m totally in love. These babies are sex on a stick (or leg), and if they don’t get every man in the vicinity hot and bothered I don’t know what will. With Zanotti’s signature architectural heel, these sandals look great from every angle. The shiny gold hardware on the front will enhance your tan while the heel to knee zipper on the back will enhance everything else. If you’ve got what it takes to rock these sandals, wear all season long, every chance you can get. Blame the trail of broken hearts on Zanotti… Black leather strappy sandals with gold tone hardware and an architectural heel, these designer shoes will make the summer season much hotter. They have […]

This is the kind of shoe that makes me want to whip out my credit card, buy, and think about the consequences to my bottom line later. It’s leg elongating and flattering, designed in a classic pump style, but with all over spiked studs it’s a study in contrasts. Lady like and glamorous or femme fatale? Both! Another bonus… the metal hardware on these shoes could easily double as a weapon, so not only are you going to look good wearing these shoes, you may feel a little safer. Nude colored leather with all over, silver spike studs, the Christian Louboutin shoes are statement style personified. They have an almond shaped toe, a leather in-sole and signature red sole. The heel measures 5 inches with a 1.75 inch platform. $1,295 Available at mytheresa.com.
