This suede wonderful shoe I came across while strolling around the internet is my latest obsession. It wasn’t specified if it’s for men or women so I guess (from the looks of it) it’s unisex.
Or not. But it’s really not important, it just looks lovely! I know that my last Shoe Obsession episode was about high heels (and $600)! Now it’s about a $350 (appx) urban shoe. One black with red laces and the other purple. Both with white Vibram sole. I just couldn’t resist showing them to you. What do you think? (via)

Hussein Chalayan is a very busy man. Yesterday, his collaboration with Puma was announced, today we focus on his latest catwalk.
It’s seems we get around shoes for this one too – for his fall-winter 2008 he managed something amazing – socks-boots. I don’t know how you look at these, but me I’m rather impressed! I wouldn’t mind at all if they would become the new it shoes! Made with Falke, the german producer of hosiery, these boots are still going under “concept” name, but I still hope they’ll go further than that! What do you think?
Are these Chalayan Socks Boots pretty enough to take over the streets? Or do you find them rather strange?

Haven’t had a crush on a pair of shoes for quite some time, now. I found this pair yesterday when strolling around the internet and I completely fell for!
It’s a pair of Christian Louboutin Stilettos. I don’t know what made this pair so special and why this particular one hit me more than others, but I guess the picture is more evocative than my descriptions. I usually don’t go for this kind of overrated-priced-shoes or made from “precious” materials (like these python shoes).
However, I have to ask for your help in finding these shoes. I looked around for info over the internet but couldn’t find anything relevant. So if you know something about them (including the name, price) feel invited to share, who knows, maybe I’ll give in to this shoes obsession…
Update: Thanks to our reader Stacey Leigh I found out that they’re called “Declic” and cost app. $1400 (and still beautiful).

When I saw this platform, I started wandering why it looked so familiar. It felt like I’ve seen it already. In my dreams.
A candy platform perfect for winter days. Light up your inner pink with this Miu Miu Deco Patent Platform (available at Bergdorf Goodman for $695).

Indulge me on this – ain’t this the cutes thing this week? And most important is that this “thing” is a shoe, and it’s well known, we’ve got this shoes obsession we refuse to manage in any other way than shopping therapy.
Giuseppe Zanotti leather round-toe style (with hidden platform) Patent-Trim Spectator Pumps comes with pre-order and it costs $595. I feel like any other comment on this particular pair of shoes is useless, they’re so much able to represent themselves that I’ll just let you enjoy the view.

Since we’re approaching the new year, resolutions are in order. Today we’re in shoes resolutions: therefore we made a 5 positions top with the boots we would never wear.
On the 5th place, Dior presents us this fur-trim ankle boot and invites us to buy it for $1.150. Now, if we were completely fashionblind, maybe, just maybe, he’d had a shot. But let’s take a closer look: black macramé with tonal solid underlay and! tonal dyed rabbit fur and suede trim? That’s just ugly! Two times ugly – first time because of the materials used to create this ankle boot and second time for the result itself.
The 4th place is taken by Dsquared2. We like a lot of their creations, but this fierce zip and tuck knee high boots is faaar from what we could ever appreciate. Not only the price measures their ugliness ($1.848) but the extreme bad taste of the coyote fur trim and the thigh-high harness make the sight of these Dsquared2 boots a hard one to bear.
Further on, at the 3nd spot, we find the Christian Lacroix Motorcycle-Style Boots. We love motorcycles but this boots make us hate them. The embellished gator is detachable but still that doesn’t convince us. These $1.543 multi-colored iridescent leather shoes definitely won their place in top 5 boots we’ll never wear.
The 2nd place is occupied by Christian Louboutin (that we usually love) with this Donjon Studded Boots that seem to have an edge we can’t really taste. For $2.487 you get black over-the-knee flat boots with gold studs. At least for that price, they’ve could have had real gold studs. It would have been reason enough to buy (for some)
The 1st place was very easy to choose. If one’s business doesn’t work, one’s trying new ways to seduce the market. The problem is we cannot see how shoes can represent an interesting market for Victoria’s Secret, especially since they’ve done quite well on the underwear segment. So this surprisingly ugly pair of knee-high boots from Victoria’s Secret kinda raise eyebrows. At least they only cost $129.
