Nine shoe trends from Fashion Week 2017


Sometimes it's just fun to dream.......
These shoes are from Fashion Week 2017.....
If I had all the money in the world, I would start my shoe shopping here.........


The art of the heel is everywhere.........

This chunky blue glass heel white leather pump is by Dries Van Noten with a price tag of just over $900.00





This Salvatore Ferragamo F Heel is an architectural wonder.
They actually are a reincarnation of a Ferragamo shoe of 1947.



 This Gucci extravaganza of embellishment is priced at a mere $1590.00





This candle stick pedestal shoe is designed by Mary Katrantzou and carries a hefty price tag.






Another interesting heel by Marni.  Notice the sole shape of this trendy sandal.  It will take a whole lot of pennies to put these in your shopping cart.





 Rosie Assoulin launched her own footwear collection for 
Fall ’17. The debut season featured pumps and boots with ornate wooden heels, 




Another shoe fashion trend is the abundance of embellishment.

 Prada put forth this exaggerated button strap pump.  Priced at well over a thousand dollars.




The velvet laced boot is by Erdem.  Erdem is British based and out of my price range.






This satin and silk rhinestone and gold pump is by Miu Miu.... Another runway masterpiece  






Did you know that up until 1850, shoes were made straight, meaning that there was no differentiation from left and right shoes.  It was a good idea to always put the same shoe on your right and left foot.  Then each shoe would begin to take the shape of that foot.



 Footwear is becoming more art than it is functional.  If footwear trends continue in this fashion, we can expect the shoes of the future to be even more out-of-this-world.
