There are more talented designers and high quality crafted shoes than ever before. Retailers are stocking as much as the can; exclusive designs, premiere collections, pre-orders….and as much as I love how accessible fashion has become, it’s also seems quite cluttered.

Since we started this blog (6 years ago!) we continue to enjoy curating and searching through the masses to bring you the best, the standouts.

Which are you favorite?

Giuseppe Zanotti sandal | 130mm/5.1″ heel & 10mm/.39″platform | shop at Saks Fifth Avenue for $650 and Amazon for $695

Remember the beautiful lace-up booties we featured last month from the same Spring/Summer 2014 collection? Zanotti has continued to design several new styles in the same eye-catching white snake-embossed leather including these sleek sandals. They feature a padded nude leather insole, tapered round toe, cone-shaped white leather covered heel and adjustable strap with a gold-tone buckle. Half sizes are available.



Nicholas Kirkwood strappy ankle-strap sandal | 115mm/4.5″ heel | shop at Matches for $1,334 and at Saks Fifth Avenue for $1295.00

Meet one of the glamorously dramatic new styles from Kirkwood’s Spring 2014 collection. Check out how they look on the foot. They feature a black suede front & thin cross-straps, black satin back, rose gold piped leather trim, clear PVC straps at the back, blush satin toe, thick curved heel and adjustable ankle-strap. If the sexy sculpted heel wasn’t enough already, it’s given another dose of pizazz with a floating Swarovski crystal encrusted sphere attached to the heel breast.

Half sizes are available and you can find a similar ankle-strap from the same collection in nude satin at Moda Operandi.

Reese Witherspoon wore Manolo Blahnik Chaos ankle-strap sandals to ELLE’s 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration in LA. These shoes feature nude suede and 107mm heel. Chaos is available with a 107mm/4.25″ heel black, gold and nude at Nordstrom.

She was the best-dressed and joined the other honorees wearing a fiery red viscose strapless Calvin Klein Collection dress with a contrast white stripe and pleat detail around at the waist. Reese put the finishing touches on this beautiful look with her hair loosely twisted back and pinned at the nape of the neck. She also carried a marbled box clutch.

Katie Holmes wore Gio Diev Orly black leather high-rise pumps to the ‘Dead Accounts’ premiere after party in NYC. These heels are from the latest Spring 2013 collection featuring a t-bar design with two adjustable straps. Katie is the first celebrity to wear a style from this collection. You can shop the latest styles at Gio Diev.

Katie was all smiles and wore a floral printed Bottega Veneta Spring 2013 dress. I’ve never been crazy about her style however this is one of her better looks. She also wore black tights and carried a Bottega Veneta woven gold leather clutch.

This has been a great week for Diev – Britney Spears also wore the Nikko pump on ‘X Factor’!

She stayed warm wearing an Isabel Marant Khan grey tweed coat paired with a printed blouse and black leather leggings. Miranda also accessorized with Miu Miu gold glitter sunglasses and carried a Valentino Grand Lock studded leather bag.

The Punky boots are a celebrity favorite and already seen on Zoe Saldana this week. Check out more shoes spotted on Miranda.
