B Store ‘Herman’ Desert Boots

This morning I was dreaming that I was trying to decide between black desert boots by Visvim or Bally. When I Goolgled them I found these instead. I don't usually like asymmetrical lacing but this is so far over to the side that it's completely different.


Lanvin f/w 11 Backstage

Pretty backstage images of the Lanvin show. There were some cool shoes featured which I'm sure to find more detailed views of at a later date.


Maison Martin Margiela 22 Waxed Leather Baseball Trainers

I should really keep an eye out for different fastenings that could be applied to footwear. These are from the Maison Martin Margiela f/w 10 collection.


Proenza Schouler Tasseled Sandals

I like the bits-and-pieces and the references to 'proper' footwear (brogueing and tassels) on these Proenza Schouler sandals.

Alexander McQueen Mens f/w 11

There was a great variety of shoes shown in the Alexander McQueen f/w 2011 runway collection. I was all very nicely done and all very British. "Shoin your shoes guvna?"


Miharayasuhiro Heeled Trekking Boots

I don't think I've ever seen such a well concealed wedge. It makes the shoe look like a big triangle. Triangle trekking.


Giuliano Fujiwara f/w 11 Footwear

The top example features some of the more awkward trends of the moment: fringing, bright blue leather AND thick orthopedic-looking soles.


Reed Krakoff Canvas Oxford Shoes

I'm astonished at how excited I get over dull shoes.


Maison Martin Margiela Open Lace Shoes

Recently I featured the Maison Martin Margiela wedge boots with the same kind of nailing of the upper to the sole. These men's shoes use the idea incredibly well. Really simlple yet quite out of the ordinary.


Dior Homme 10 Classics Footwear

These had escaped my attention. The footwear from the "10 Classics" range by Dior Homme is - as the name suggests - classic and simple, however there are some twists in the shape and stitching of the quarters.


Burberry Prorsum f/w 11 Mens Runway

Burberry showed rather refined and minimal uppers contrasting with thick Dr. Martens style rubber soles - which is a good thing because it rained. I think the use of this work-boot sole on a sneaker works very well, as is it unusual but quite fitting in its casualness.


Ann Demeulemeester s/s 11 Womens Footwear

Some more looks at the always inspiring work of Ann D. Some of my favorite elements in these are the simple strong contrast in the top wedges, the heel cap that extends down the boots and the asymmetrical panels on the bottom sandals. Black & white, black, white and black.


Ann Demeulemeester Vitello Boots

I'm in the mood for boots. These would do just nicely.


Nike Air Force 1 'Grey Perf'

For someone with a blog about interesting shoes, I can sure be into some boring looking footwear. There maybe more to these than I initially thought. I think what I like about grey sneakers is the colour (or lack thereof) brings a uniformity to what would usually be a complex design. Sneakers often have many pieces and elements, and an even grey tones down the busyness. Maybe they're not so dull.


Chloé Cutout Leather and Cork Ankle Boots

I like that visually there isn't much more to these shoes other than some black leather and a whole lotta cork. The simplicity and abundance keeps the focus on the materials.
