oxford shoes

Jeffrey Campbell collection at OAK

I love this selection of Jeffrey Campbell footwear, fall-winter 2008-09, available at hip store Oak Nyc. From sky-high 5" heels to the flattest flats the collection keeps a sassy look thanks to the fun and forward spin on the season's trends (such as the peep-toe bootie or the high platform pumps), street style and vintage classics (oxford shoes).

Buckles, lace-ups, soft suede or python skin, there is something for everybody. My favorites are the suede low boots Dakota and the naughty looking Pape Heel.

 

Coca Zaboloteanu shoes

Coca Zaboloteanu is an emerging Romanian shoe label synonym for playful-retro-chic style. Coca, a 26 years old fashionista, got a BA in Dental Medicine but decided to make her passion for shoes into a fashion business.

She started by drawing sketches and getting professional manual labor while learning shoe manufacturing techniques by herself. Shortly after she opened a small design studio in Bucharest and launched an exclusive line of unique shoes.

Shoe trends for spring 2008

Shoe trends this spring don't look very pretty. I mean ‘pretty' is not the word to describe these edgy, bold looks the footwear has been given. Of course, you still get to wear last season's patent, metallics, exotic leather, platforms, cone heels and ballerina flats.

Along with those, spring 2008 trends have a lot to offer: the peep-toe bootie or the oxford-sandal is the new must have. The wedge shoe is back and is higher than ever. Color-block and fabric printed shoes match the season's palette and for warrior looks what's more suited than a pair of gladiator boots?

Enjoy!
