JImmy Choo Fedora Sandals

Jimmy Choo’s Fedora sandals are a shoe for all seasons. The colors are fall/winter, but the open design is perfect for warmer weather. Unlike tassels, the fringe on the front offers a bit of eye-catching movement without losing it’s shape. Wear with tailored shorts in the warmer months, leather leggings when it gets cold and a pedicure year round. Patent leather and red satin with short fringe on the front, these designer shoes will flounce with your every strut. They have a leather sole and in-sole. The heel measures 4.75 inches with a .4 inch platform. $1,050 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.  

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.  

Giuseppe Zanotti designed a small collection of sexy, grunge accessories inspired by model Anja Rubik. Corseted lacing and piercings detail this collection, and while I’m anything but grunge, I really like it. I love the asymmetrical┬ácut on these sandals. It leaves the soft arch of the foot exposed while the gold chain drapes across a part of the foot that is rarely seen. And while this chain to barbell is remniscent of a nose to earring chain, the effect is still sexy in non-grunge way. Black leather with gold tone hardware, these designer shoes are the perfect way to sex up almost any look. They have an open toe and inner side cut out. They have a leather sole and insole. The heel measures 4.75 inches. $1, 826 Available at LUISAVIAROMA.COM.  

Giuseppe Zanotti Sandals

Black and gold is a hot color combination this season, and when it comes to hot trends, no one does it better than Giuseppe Zanotti. He takes the classic T-strap style and makes it chunky with oversized gold tone hardware. The dual ankle straps do nothing to diminish the grandeur of these shoes, but with the rest of the foot exposed, the overall look is bold and sophisticated without being overstated. If you like the Giuseppe look but want a toned down version, go with the Schutz Akshya version (below). You’ll save a ton of cash in the process. Black leather and suede, respectively, with gold tone, pyramid shaped stud details along the T-strap and dual ankle straps, these sandals will flatter any look. They have a leather in sole and sole. The Giuseppe sandals have a 5 inch heel. The Schutz have a 4 inch heel. $149 Available at […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a really great shoe design that hasn’t come from a well known designer attached to a high end line. Obviously, Pour La Victoire has some talented people in the company, but based on the style and price point of these sandals I would have thought B Brian Atwood or Rachel Zoe. These shoes are quite versatile considering the multi colors and mediums. The shiny gold hardware and the strappy open toe are indicative of a dressy sandal while the perforated vamp have a sportier appeal, making them great for day to evening wear. These sandals come in three color combinations, but all are made with leather and have a strap across the open toe. They have an adjustable buckle closure at the ankle strap, a leather sole and in-sole. The heel measures 4.25 inches with a .5 inch platform. $350 Available here
