Solestruck is one of my favorite online footwear outlets, and yesterday they sent out an email announcing spanking new stock. That’s a click opportunity I can’t resist. On Soestruck’s “new arrivals” page I was greeted by 5-inch heels with ginormous platforms, hoof silhouettes, glitter, and endless straps and buckles. Are shoes becoming increasingly crazypants by the minute? I don’t think we’ve ever before seen such over-the-top shoes meant for a mainstream (if fashion forward) audience. And by mainstream I mean not strippers. I’m not knocking it, I’m actually coveting most of these nutty designs. Jeffrey Campbell is clearly spearheading the insanity shoe movement with their Acne knock offs, but they’re not alone as you can see above. Personally, I’m obsessed with the Gee Wa Wa Futures. It will be interesting to see where we go from here: we’ll either be walking on bedazzled stilts or favoring boyish loafers.
