WWD MAGIC Report: We’re All About Shoes!

Photo taken at Hasbeens

On our first day attending WWD MAGIC we were lucky enough to go on a tour of FN Platform featuring the most comprehensive collection of footwear brands all in one place!

This time around, trends for Spring/Summer 2012 were all about natural materials like raffia, wood, cork mixed with leather and suede.  Colors range from bold jewel tones like cobalt blue, emerald and yellows to neutrals like griege, grey and black.  So hot were the over the top styles with spikey metal detailing like the fab pumps from Alejandra J. that you’ll see below.

Love these Pura Lopez wedge sandals!  The combination of raffia in white with grey suede finished off with the superchic flower will go perfectly with any of my spring/summer outfits for 2012!

Mink Shoes is a super cool all natural vegan line of shoes made from materials like wood, rubber, cork and organic materials.  Handcrafted in Italy, these shoes are a great way to help preserve the planet.  Rebecca Mink, the designer LOVES animals and this is a great way to practice environmental responsibility.

Prints were everywhere and I LOVE these Ikat flats by Cynthia Vincent. The combination of ethnic prints with natural colored leather makes this a great pair of shoes to go with your favorite denim jeans.

These spikey high heel sandals from Alejandra G. makes me want to dig out by black motorcycle jacket and go out for a night on the town.  Love the black and white stripe bottoms!

I’m a NYC girl so I am always on the hunt for super stylish comfortable footwear I can slip into while shopping, heading to lunches and meetings.   Made from rubber and available in 13 jeweltone colors, Jelly Shoes designed by Sisters Bianca and Kveta Fiebiger are the only way to survive the hot sun, rainstorms and the occasional drizzle we often experience in NYC.

These festive ballet flats from Ballasox by Corso Como are what got me through three days of walking the MAGIC shows.  I would start everyday out wearing fun high heeled wedges and change into these comfortable, leather rubber soled ballet flats by noon. They will come in handy in the future for sure. Available in 22 colors. Thanks Ballasox!
