OK fans, I am headed to the show today in L.A. and want to know what types of shoes you want to see! I’ll try to get some good pics of the latest shoe trends for this fall! 🙂
I know it’s not even spring or summer yet, but the shoe shows are always at least one season ahead of us so that the buyers for the retail stores can see what’s coming out, place orders, and have the shoes in the stores in time for all of us shoppers to buy them!
Here are just a few of the popular sweater boots:
This is a serious new combo that you have to try if you wear UGGs!
Ok, I have to preface this new find with this statement: I was not a huge supporter of UGGs boots in the beginning. They were just not supportive enough for me. I didn’t like how flat the insole was…until now! OMG, my feet are in love with this combo:
UGGs boots with the new Aetrex Lynco L900 Sheepskin Orthotics
It’s like a match made in heaven! I’m not even trying to be funny. The combination of the roomy sheepskin UGGs boots with the Aetrex sheepskin orthotics is like a putting your foot in a warm, fluffy (but supportive) pillow. It’s like when you buy a new mattress that fits you perfectly with just the right amount of support. Ahhh.
And just a reminder that back in September I showed you how far UGGs have come with their stylish new styles, from sandals to flats to clogs to wedge boots to high heel boots and of course the famous classic boots, hiking boots, rain boots, and slippers. Like I said in my last blog, they’re not just oversized slippers anymore!
These are my absolute favorite UGGs boots:
Yeah, I like wedge boots. But I love, love, love my UGGs Classic Boots with my Aetrex Sheepskin Orthotics even more!!! 🙂
Thank you UGGs and Aetrex for doing this to my feet! 🙂
Shoe lovers, I’d love to see your favorite boots & booties too!
I’m feeling a fabulous Friday approaching, so I need to post some of “My Favorite ____ for Fabulous Friday!” And I am still feeling the sexy style of Stuart Weitzman…so here are some of My Favorite Stuart Weitzman ankle boots:
Stuart Weitzman Camden zip booties $535.00 at Zappos
Of course, it’s almost winter so we’re still talking boots, booties, and more boots. Tall, over the knee, ankle, whatever, but all of them are still hot! As you can probably tell from my previous posts, I love grey. The detail on this shoe is a nice surprise in that chunky heel (a trend we’ll be seeing more of this spring and fall)…and another trend we’re going to see more of in the spring 2011 shoes is acrylic in the heel. Just watch! 😉
Stuart Weitzman camel suede DC Frosty platform cuff booties $285.00 at Bluefly
Of course, another bootie. But this one looks so warm and comfy (and sexy!). The furry cuff is a nice touch, and I love this color! It just looks luxurious, and I think I’m in love with these shoes. 🙂
Stuart Weitzman Ontherail zip booties $475.00 at Zappos
I know this color is bold and makes a strong statement, but whether or not you love this blue, you have to admit this is one beautiful shoe! I happen to love this shade of blue although I don’t own any shoes in this color (the closest ones would be my Kuru’s, my Crocs, and my running shoes). The zipper detail in the back and the silver heel add some more sparkle and nice touches too. By the way, these shoes are on sale this week for $360.00! 😉
Stuart Weitzman BuckKeen zip booties $525.00 at Zappos
Talk about a festive holiday shoe! I love this color during this time of year; it’s so much better than plain old red. And the buckle is a nice little additon. Yes, please! 🙂
Stuart Weitzman Fringes zip booties $535.00 at Zappos
Fringes were another big trend this season, so here you go! Fringes on a Stuart Weitzman bootie…you can’t go wrong here!
Stuart Weitzman Safetybelt zip booties $475.00 at Zappos
And last but not least, the Safetybelt zip booties. Grey again! But this time it’s two shades of grey, some black, and a buckle…I’m asking myself right now “why don’t I own these yet?!”
Dedicated to your foot health and your shoes,
“All shoes, all the time!”
With this cold winter weather, everyone is trying to keep warm. And as a podiatrist, I must add that warm is good! Warm is especially good for people with cold feet, diabetes, circulatory problems, connective tissue disorders, gout, peripheral vascular disease, anemia, and various causes of foot pain. When someone has one of these conditions and their feet get cold, their feet will hurt even more. Of course, there are obvious reasons for keeping our feet warm, like preventing frostbite…So let’s all keep our tootsies warm this winter whether we have any of these conditions or not.
And so with the cold, the shearling boots are trending in stores and in online sales. I’ve been keeping my eye on some of these boots that look warm, comfy, and cute! Tell me what you think. I’m just going to add that I would wear any of these. 🙂
Cole Haan Air Michelle Tall Shearling Boot $278.60 at 6pm
Rockport Gerti Welt Shearling Boots $225 at Macy’s
Maison Martin Margiela Tall Shearling Boots $1,000 at Saks Fifth Avenue
Cabela’s Winterchase Tall Shearling Boots $79.99 at Cabela’s
And just to make this list complete, I’m including two of my furry boots from my own closet:
my furry boots
my furry Skechers boots
They are both warm, comfy, and cute…and both have their special time and place for me to wear them. We can only wear our heels for the right occasion, even if they are boots! As a foot doctor & shoe expert, I know when and where to wear mine. I’ve been known to wear 5″ heels out on the town, but for everyday at the office or for walking out in the cold rainy weather, I wear what works best: comfortable shoes that keep me warm and pain-free. Just a reminder for my shoe lovers! 😉 Keep your feet feeling great!
“All shoes, all the time!”
To all of my girls out there, fashionistas and shoe lovers, I know you have one too…a Shoe Wish List, right? I want to know what you ladies want!
To all of our men out there, please take notes and read our wish lists! We love when you get us what we REALLY want! Don’t we, gurls? 😉 Well, here’s my Top Ten shoe desires…a girl can dream, can’t she? 😉
1. I can not say it enough…I am in love with these Stuart Weitzman over the knee black leather boots!
2. In a very close second place are the black flat leather boots that I tried on at the Paseo Colorado Cole Haan store in Pasadena. They were the most comfortable boots EVER!
7. For an open toe pump, these Lanvin shoes are awesome! I think I could definitely handle these! 😉
8. Well, what can I say? Stuart Weitzman made it to my top 10 wish list twice!
9. I’ve seen a few lace pumps this season that were great, including these Alexander McQueens!
10. Well, I couldn’t really do a top 10 list without mentioning Manolo Blahnik…and if I’m gonna wear cheetah, it may as well be these boots! Roar! haha
Well, I could go on and on…and I probably will later…LOL. For now, that’s all folks! –Dr. Michele, The Shoe Expert (and birthday girl)
For several seasons now loafers have been trying to make a comeback on the fashion scene, but they never seem to really pull it off. What do you think? Can loafers ever REALLY make a comeback? They’ve actually come a long way, baby! Of course, there are still the same traditional styles of loafers out there like the penny loafer, but there are now loafers with animal print, wedges, and high heels. Let’s take a look at some of the various styles of loafers on sale this fall…maybe you’ll like them and even wear them!
I actually sell these Aetrex loafers in my office, and my patients love them! They like the fact that they are super comfy and still stylish with the patent leather croc upper.
Here’s another wedge loafer but they’re not as high as the last ones…plus, look at the sole. Although they’re thin soled, the sole still looks like it has the rubber grip and cushion that we’ve seen in a couple of the other loafers. They just might be more comfortable on your feet than they seem at first glance. There are a lot of things to consider when looking at comfort, and most people look first at the heel height. But we also have to look at sole thickness, materials used, shape of the toe box, etc.
