So, it’s fall and besides the ho-hum return to class, this lovely season means nothing but greatness. And by greatness I mean new shoes!! There’s no better excuse than the approaching cold weather to stock up on the season’s hottest boots, heels and flats. So, for those of you with less time on your hands than I have, here’s a list of fall 09’s must-have kicks. Just click on those beauties to buy ’em up.
This show-stopping style is EVERYWHERE and comes in as many varieties as its shorter counterparts, appearing in every incarnation from leather to suede to exotic skins, and with heels ranging from sky-high to nonexistent.
A perfect transition from class to dinner to a party, these versatile shoes offer a more comfortable alternative to stilettos without sacrificing one bit of glamour. This year’s flats have a dramatic edge, covered in everything from studs to beads to jewels, and they add sparkle to every outfit, whether it be your favorite skinnies and boyfriend blazer or your slinkiest LBD.
Last year’s basic booties and this summer’s cage heels and gladiators combine forces this season to create a truly amazing phenomenon–the cutout bootie! Perfect with leggings, or with tights and a minidress, these showstoppers make a dramatic statement without making you look like you’re strapped into snowshoes. The trick to finding the most flattering style is the cut–look for booties that dip down and expose your entire ankle (so more like “shooties”–shoes and booties, get it?) rather than covering it, so your legs are elongated and not cut off.
