The stars on the runway may set the latest trends but not all of them are going to appeal to the mass crowds.  In fact, I am willing to bet that most of the shoe styles that I saw on the runway this year are not going to be seen out on the street very much.  Here is a picture of a few examples that I encountered in at the Paris Fashion Show this year.

Now some styles are better than others.  I’m definitely not a fan of the shoe in the middle.  However, if standing out is your main concern then that shoe is perfect for you.  I did start to see a bit of a trend with shoes that have straps to wrap around the ankle.  This is going to be very big this year and it will certainly trickle down to the main stream marketplace.

My favorite shoe at the fashion show this year goes to Jason Wu.  It was by far the most simplistic design of the group which is why I believe it will be a big success in his current shoe line.  It displays the beauty of the woman’s foot.  This is best worn on a woman who has slender and toned feet.  I would not suggest that you wear this shoe if you are overweight or do not have elegant feet.

Some other major brands that were displayed on the runway this year include Louis Vuitton, Altuzarra, Marc Jacobs, Gucci, Derek Lam, and Prada.  Along with the tie laces, another major trend we have seen are platform heels, shoes and loafers.  They seem to be making a comeback like and we will be seeing a lot more styles coming into the stores this spring.  So keep an eye out and let us know when you find something unique.  We may just put it on our blog and give you credit for it.  Thanks again, and until next year.
