Wild, Crazy, Outrageous Shoes of 2010 (Part II)

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 4, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

This is part 2 of my “wild, crazy, outrageous shoes worn on the runways in 2010” blog post, but they are not crazy in that we don’t want to wear them! On the contrary…although these shoes may be a little too high or too embellished or too colorful for some of us for everyday use (like me! I don’t think I could perform surgery in them!), these shoes surely inspired many of the shoes that were for sale in the stores this year. The styles were definitely a hit with the women buying shoes…from the wedges to the platforms to the strappy ankle boots…these shoes were incredible on and off the runways!

Wild, crazy, outrageous or not, I think I love all of them! 🙂

So just like I asked you in the last post, tell me something: Do you like them?

Or do you love them like I do?

And would you wear them?

If so, which ones?

Just my two cents on these wild, crazy, outrageous runway shoes: my favorites are the white satin Burberry ankle booties, the Alexander Wang animal print wedges, the Rick Owens grey striped strappy open toe shoes,  and the rest of them! Would I wear them? Probably!!! 🙂

The Top Ten Runway Shoes of 2010

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 31, 2010 by The Shoe Expert

There are sure to be tons of Top Ten lists of the year 2010 out there this week, and since we’re talking shoes…here is the list (and photos) of 

The Top Ten Runway Shoes of 2010

as compiled by Footwear News and Women’s Wear Daily. Just a little warning: some, if not all, of these shoes are a little over the top for most of us! But as you may know, runway looks are just that…they are over the top, they are for the runway, and they are meant to be that way to get the attention of the audience, the buyers, the retailers, and the public. And often the versions sold in the stores are a watered down version of what we see on the runways. So tell me what you think of these shoes, in concept such as the platforms, the detailing, the colors, the heel height, etc.

Alexander McQueen’s RTW Fall 2010 Collection



Barbara Bui’s fur lined buckled platform boots


Chanel’s RTW Spring 2010 Collection


John Paul Gaultier’s sequin pumps over platform wedges


Jimmy Choo’s strappy sandals with Lucite heel and platform


Louis Vuitton’s RTW Fall 2010 Collection


Nicholas Kirkwood’s platform booties


Pierre Hardy’s velvet and peacock feather booties

Just my two cents on these runway shoes: my favorites are the Chanel clogs and the Louis Vuitton pumps, but I have to give a special shout out to the Proenza wedges too! 🙂

Happy New Year, shoe lovers!!!
