ShoNews - Chloe Jade Green - AW14

She's an heiress to billions – her dad is notable TopShop tycoon Sir Philip Green – but she doesn't let this define her, and at only 23, the launch of the latest collection for her own footwear brand, CJG, is certainly testament to this.

Featuring an edgier style than previous seasons, the Autumn Winter 2014 collection takes inspiration from rock and roll, and is well worth a peek!

Isabel Marant - Play Metallic Sandals

Isabel Marant - Play Metallic Sandals

These are the type of shoe that you look at and simply gush. And the longer you look, the more enchanted you become whereby a moment of shoe adoration quickly turns into desperation, and one can see why. 

These Isabel Marant sandals are classic, elegant, chic, sophisticated and above all else, glamorous! A metallic scaled finish, cutesy toe bow and buckle strap all combine for the perfect evening look. 

Luichiny - Viv Ienne

Luichiny - Viv Ienne

Now here's a shoe that falls into the definite 'shoe statement' category - you aren't wearing this if you're shoe shy, that's for sure! A synthetic tortoise print is the defining characteristic of this bootie from Luichiny, combined with cut out detailing on either side of the ankle, and then running right down the front, this shoe has bite! 

Hints of metallic gold create further drama with a buckle clasp, metal plate in the front platform, and super sexy thin gold stiletto heel!

Valentino - Rockstud Calf Hair Slingback Sandal Pink Leopard

Valentino - Rockstud Calf Hair Slingback Sandal Pink Leopard

Having recently seen a pair of Valentino's very similar to this pair in the flesh, on my cousin's flesh even, whilst I was the colour of Shrek with envy, I also could appreciate just how fabulous a pair of Valentino's really are! 

And when you have a name that contains words like 'rockstud', 'pink' and 'leopard', it's almost like you're speaking a special language... Shaz's Shoe language. Mmmhmm!

Alexandre Birman - Swirl Suede-Python Strap Caged Bootie Hortensia Rose

Alexandre Birman - Swirl Suede-Python Strap Caged Bootie Hortensia Rose

Well it sure seems like strappy sandals are all the rage, and with this gorgeous pink bootie sandal from Alexandre Birman, one can see why! If the luscious rosey pink wasn't enough, this sandal balances out its girly femininity with python side strapping and heel, in addition to the cage effect - complete with vamp ankle tie up!

The swirl of suede going from toe to ankle is super cute and the heel is a lust worthy 11.4cm (4.5 inches). 

Alexander McQueen - Shearling Studded Bootie

Alexander McQueen - Shearling Studded Bootie

Although we're heading into summer down here in the southern hemisphere, I couldn't resist sharing this stunner of a boot from the oh-so-fabulous Alexander McQueen. While it is probably is not for everyone, you can certainly appreciate the craftmanship of this boot with its quirky combination of textures and the obvious focal feature of the shearling fur and lace-up fastening right down the front. 

The chunky block heel and platform give some needed stability and a height of 13 cm (5.10 inches)!

ZIGIny - Skull Jane

ZIGIny - Skull Jane

ZIGIny delivers us yet another gorgeous addition to the world of shoes with this fabulous heel dubbed the 'Skull Jane'. This is one of those beautiful heels that can be dressed up or down and worn for both work and play, despite featuring a skull! 

It's understated glamour and sophistication with the simplicity of its design. Featuring a stark white colour palette with a girly mary jane strap buckle, its the addition of the gold trimming and accessories that really defines this shoe.

Giuseppe Zanotti - Black Croc-Embossed Leather Zulu Sneakers

Giuseppe Zanotti - Black Croc-Embossed Leather Zulu Sneakers

You might have noticed by now that the majority of shoes I put on my site are in fact heels, and as the url alludes, I tend to have an increased adoration of shoes with a heel than without. However, that is not to say I write off all other shoe categories. I can find shoe appreciation in all its forms, the sneaker included! 

This Giuseppe Zanotti sneaker is certainly worthy of a lingering gaze with a classic high top silhouette, but it's the texture that is so alluring. 

Charlotte Olympia - Hollywood

Charlotte Olympia - Hollywood

From famed shoe designer Charlotte Olympia, this sandal/wedge combo is straight out of her Pre Fall 13 collection and appropriately dubbed the 'Hollywood'. Featuring an impressive wedge platform of six inches and two inches respectively, the design pays homage to the Hollywood sign with 'Holly' and 'Wood' emblazoned on either side of each wedge.

Quality is always of the essence with shoes from Olympia and this wedge is no different - the design made from suede and kidskin. 

Hendrick Brun - Amirah

Hendrick Brun - Amirah

Another one of my favourites from the Tuxedo Tales style edit, this heel has serious style attitude while being very interesting and intriguing at the same time. The shoe features a one inch platform, giving it a total 4 & 3/4 inch heel and leather upper, lining and sole. 

It's the detail that really sets this shoe apart though. Featuring a swirl of stitching on the heel, and a 'snap and go' mechanism enabling you to switch up the style. 

Jason Wu - Alexis Leather and Suede Lace-up Boots

Jason Wu - Alexis Leather and Suede Lace-up Boots

Another one of my favourites from the Sugar and Spice style edit because it really does epitomise what this trend is all about - chic, glamorous, sexy, feminine and elegant all in one. 

The mixture of textures including leather bodice and suede toe give this boot instant class, and then the additional detailing is enough to make the best of us swoon. 

Tony Bianco - Tami Black Suede

Tony Bianco - Tami Black Suede

This adorable shoe is from Tony Bianco and is perfect if you want to hit the good school girl look, Campus Chick, of the Varsity Vintage trend. With the cutesy strap going across the front of the foot, it instantly has a sweet-as-pie look to it. 

In a beautiful finish of black suede, this shoe boasts a surprisingly good height due to the concealed platform. To sum up - cute as a button!

G by Guess - Dargha Pewter LL

G by Guess - Dargha Pewter LL

This boot is a statement boot - it has a masculine edge to it but at the same time can be prettied up with a cute skirt. 

They come in a black and brown too, but the pewter is by far the best!
