nude heels

17 May

Someone just asked me how I feel about nude heels and I was inspired to write about my favorite topic: shoes.

I think nude heels are a great look for dressing up this summer, they will go great with a good tan. Any texture will do but I’m a fan of suede and treated soft leather. I would be careful with patent, the shoe should have some other really redeeming qualities if it’s all patent. Platforms are great, ultra-high heels are a personal favorite. Avoid the mid-range though and go for flat sandals.

Some shoes I love:

Dolce Vita ‘Vivo’ Slingback Pump

DV by Dolce Vita ‘Briar’ Pump

Steve Madden ‘Bevv’ Pump

I’ll be wearing the Steve Madden pumps with a bright blue silk dress to my next formal event (there might be photos to come, I haven’t decided yet). All in all I say go nude!

Knowing the blog’s author, she would want these shoes posted. Tom’s grey chambray cordones. I definitely see the appeal, but I can’t wax poetic about them like she would. Don’t worry. She’ll be back.

Louie Gong customizes sneakers (primarily chucks and vans) with Coast Salish Art. Northwest Coast style for the feet.

Also, I love the back zipper on these vans by Hush Fabrications:

I love these and I want to wear them with some high waisted light wash denim shorts and the asymmetrical jersey button-up I just got. The white ones are my favorite.

I roused myself this morning (is it even morning anymore?) solely for these shoes and this post. After this it’s back in bed.

The release today of the retro Cement Gray Air Jordan 3s is exciting, check the twitter buzz. These shoes were re-released in 1994 and also in 2003, the cement gray has been the best color in my opinion. These shoes are too clean and I love re-releases as much as I like new furniture that looks vintage (even though this might as well be a new release because I wasn’t alive in 1988). I can’t say anything that would be more impressive than these pictures:

These are definitely hot. Get them from where you’re sitting at nicekicks or Flight Club.

Not a bape superfan like I used to be but I stumbled across these yesterday and love them. Mixing suede and leather weirds me out most of the time but maybe the fact that the suede is navy makes it ok. Jury is still out on whether the white rubber soles add or detract.

I love the silhouette of these Vans and I think they should be in my shoe wardrobe to be swapped with my black booties on occasion. I love little details like the brass hooks. These would go with skinny jeans or skirts and tights. Key: the right jacket.
