Kenzo Spring Summer 2011 Shoes

These are crazy geta inspired shoes from Kenzo this season.   My first reaction was pretty but I would never wear them but that has changed with time.  I also have a lot of ridiculous platforms why am I judging these.  I could see myself wearing the top two pairs.  I love the prints. Geta (下駄) are a form of traditional Japanese footwear that resemble both clogs and flip-flops. They are a kind of sandal with an elevated wooden base held onto the foot with a fabric thong to keep the foot well above the ground. They are worn with traditional Japanese clothing such as kimono or yukata, but (in Japan) also with Western clothing during the summer months.

i want: Paloma Satin Platform Pumps by Charlotte Olympia

There are times when I stare at my shoe collection looking for a simple heel. This always happens when I’m looking for something dressy or black tie.

Charlotte Olympia is available at The Room by The Hudson’s Bay. images:

i want: Giuseppe Zanotti Platform Wedges

These Giuseppe Zanotti platform wedges are crazy high. They have a 6-inch heel and 2-inch platform. I’m loving anything pony these days and my stance on animal print is slowly crumbling.  I really like it when it’s used for accessories. I love platforms and I have a few high ones in my closet. I wonder what these are like to walk in. Any Giuseppe wearers out there care to comment? Available at Platform Pump and Wedge images:

i want: Sergio Rossi Spring 2008 Shoes

Sergio Rossi Shoes I love these platform sandals from Sergio Rossi. The colour combos are spot on and they are unusual, very angular. I would wear these with a mini dress or skirt, they are perfect for showing off leg! Sphere Heel Sandals, I swoon at the ridiculousness of this shoe. I don’t think I’d ever wear something like this, but I do appreciate it. images:
