The Shoe Expert in USA Today!

Once again I have to say a big THANK YOU to all of my fans, friends, and readers who have consistently logged in to see what I have to say about shoes, especially women’s shoes! So thank you, thank you , thank you! Because of all of this activity, my blog was picked up by USA Today who interviewed me a few weeks ago to discuss shoes of course. The online version of the article was published yesterday, but the printed version will be available next week.

Some of the shoe types that we discuss in the article are Flip Flops, UGGs (or boots like the classic UGGs),Foldable Ballet Flats, Platform Pumps, Stilettos, Minimalist Shoes (such as the Vibram Five Fingers and the yoga toe shoes), and the dreaded Rocker Bottom Athletic Shoes (yes, we all know about these fashion-don’ts, don’t we, ladies?).

I’m sure if you’ve been one of my readers during this past year, you know that I’ve discussed each one of these shoes at least once. Sometimes on this blog we talk fashion, function, or both, but one thing that we always do is talk shoes!

So thanks again!

One last thank you for helping this blog reach its goal of 60,000 views in one year, which by the way was last week! 🙂

For more foot info, you can always view my website or my podiatry blog. But for shoe info, don’t go anywhere! More is to be revealed…

Christian Louboutin Strikes Again!

Posted in Fashion, Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

It’s only been about a week since the news came out about Christian Louboutin suing YSL over red-soled shoes…and now another company, Carmen Steffens, is being sued by Christian Louboutin for the same thing!  

Here is a look at the shoes in question:

 What do you think? Do the shoes look alike enough to warrant a lawsuit or two? Are the red colors close enough? Are there more lawsuits coming? We shall stay tuned to see…

Vegas, Baby, Vegas!

Posted in Shoes with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by The Shoe Expert

I’m on my way to Las Vegas for the WWD Magic / FN Platform Show Shoe…and I cannot be more excited to see the new shoes coming out this fall! I know, I know, it’s not even spring or summer yet, right? I hope you’re excited too!

What I want to know is…what do you want to see more of? Heels? Boots? Ankle booties? Stilettos? Trends? New colors? New designers? Let me know ASAP so I can get some great photos and post them! Most of the shoe vendors like to see them posted for more free publicity.

So for this trip, what happens in Vegas will NOT stay in Vegas! What happens in Vegas will be blogged about! 🙂

Another trend for this summer in heels of all kinds, from sandals to wedges to pumps to boots, is animal print! I had the pleasure to take photos of some beautiful shoes coming out soon, so take a look and tell me if you like them, love them, or hate them! (I already know a few of you did not appreciate some of them that I posted as my “shoe of the day” last week.)

Please comment on your faves or your least faves! 🙂

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

 

Prada’s RTW Spring 2010 Collection

 

Proenza Schouler’s carved platform wedge sandals with embroidery

 

To see Footwear News’ slide show of these shoes on the runway, click here.

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!!!
