Isabel Marant - Milla Suede Ankle Boots

 

Get your vampire vixen on with these gorgeous suede ankle boots, shown as part of the Spring/Summer 2014 Isabel Marant collection.

One can only gush over the detail of these shoes, featuring cut-outs, oversized bows embellished with gunmetal eyelets, and then topping it off with a wooden conical heel. Not to mention an abundance of black suede... super chic!

ShoNews - B by Brian Atwood - SS14

It's a double dose of Brian Atwood this week, as coinciding with the Brian Atwood Spring/Summer 2014 collection, we also get a sneak peek at the B by Brian Atwood SS14 collection too!

It's not a lot, but the lookbook is enough of a teaser to have you licking your lips with lust at the prospects of strappy sandals, sexy stilettos and striking shoes that would be a welcome addition to any shoe addicts wardrobe. 

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!

ShoNews - Privileged by J.C Dossier - FW13

ShoNews - Privileged by J.C Dossier - FW13

I can't believe it's that time again... that's right, it feels like only yesterday we were looking at the Spring/Summer 2013 collection from Privileged by J.C Dossier, so how can we possibly be onto their Fall/Winter collection already! Well... if I have learnt anything throughout my journey of shoe discovery, it's don't question the unncessary! 

Instead, we shall embrace the bold, bright and downright dazzling designs of the new Fall/Winter collection, in all their daring razzle.

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)!

ShoNews - Jimmy Choo - AW13

ShoNews - Jimmy Choo - AW13

If you've picked up a high fashion magazine lately then chances are you've seen the foxy Nicole Kidman campaigning for the latest Jimmy Choo AW13 collection, and I tell ya what, she looks as stunning as the Jimmy Choo shoes she's wearing!

So despite being a bit slow off the mark, as I spotted her a few weeks back while perusing magazines during a ridiculously long but luxurious hair appointment, I felt it still necessary to share some snaps of the latest because as they say... better late than never!

 

ShoNews - What's New From London Trash

ShoNews - What's New From London Trash

I have featured a few shoes from London Trash on Writing in Heels, and their combination of sky high silhouettes, bold prints and interesting design detail has definitely given them a much-deserved spot on my shoe radar. 

Most recently some pretty fab new styles and designs have popped up and with my quest to keep you in the loop with what's making ShoNews, while continuing to provide you with shoes that would make excellent additions to your wardrobe or even just something to lust over, I knew I needed to feature the latest from London Trash!

ShoNews - What's New From Yes

ShoNews - What's New From Yes

Yes, the brand is called Yes, and to be honest, I hadn't heard of them either until I stumbled across some shoes worthy of a second glance on SoleStruck.com. After deciding their latest designs had some merit to them, I went on a wee Google search to discover the background of the brand, but alas my Writing in Heels fans, this is a shoe moment where I feel as if I have failed you, as I couldn't find anything! Well... nothing that I thought to be reliable or with enough substance to actually post up. So if you know a bit about the brand get in touch, it might just make it into a ShoEducation post for us all!

ShoNews - Christian Louboutin - FW13 Collection

ShoNews - Christian Louboutin - FW13 Collection

Christian Louboutin's are to me, like Manolo Blahnik's are to Sarah Jessica Parker and her fashion savvy alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw, so the launch of a new collection is like a torturous version of Christmas whereby you get to open all your presents but keep none of them.

Nonetheless, like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, I can certainly still longingly look upon the fabulous combinations of spikes, leopard print, pink and glitter. J'adore...

Bettie Page - Damsel

Bettie Page - Damsel

Now this is a cool boot! From Bettie Page, this boot looks like it could be dropped straight from a Vampire flick with the perfect combination of edge, attitude and lust-worthy design detail that makes it appear quite unique even though there are parts of it we have seen before. 

When admiring this particular heel, one must comment on the shape and the beautiful arc of the body through to the heel that is further complemented with studding detail all the way around.

Michael Antonio Studio - Tyrus

Michael Antonio Studio - Tyrus

Another heel that falls into the realm of probably not for everyone out there, but I certainly would don this fine piece of shoe craftsmanship. This pump/wedge platform number is from Michael Antonio Studio and is definitely one of the louder heels seeking attention with its hot pink fuschia colour palette.

Taking this shoe up a notch is the addition of gold painted hardware with a combination of eyelets and studs adorning the entire exterior of the shoe.  

McQ by Alexander McQueen - Pink Studded Leather Pointed Pumps

McQ by Alexander McQueen - Pink Studded Leather Pointed Pumps

Another fabulous find from McQ by Alexander McQueen, this pump is a colour shade that I absolutely adore and what I describe as Barbie Pink - that soft, candy pastel shade reminiscent of painted lips of the 80's. 

The shoe is gorgeous leather with a patent heel just under five inches high and a half inch platform. Also lust worthy are the silver cone stud embellishments on the collar of the heel.

Iron Fist - Black Sheep Wedge Platform

Iron Fist - Black Sheep Wedge Platform

Growing up, most teenagers hate to be the black sheep but when it comes to shoes, there's nothing better than rocking a pair that no one else has. Iron Fist give tribute to the black sheep with a rockin' wedge/sandal, perfect in the lead up to Spring/Summer. 

The main feature is definitely the six inch cork heel and two inch platform, printed with adorable little lambies in both black and white.

Giuseppe Zanotti - Studded Suede Lace-Up Bootie

Giuseppe Zanotti - Studded Suede Lace-Up Bootie

This bootie from Giuseppe Zanotti has a number of favourable features going for it, but most prominent has to be the bold, eye-catching colour in a striking shade described as 'violet'. Finished in a soft suede, this shoe exudes elegance with a five inch stiletto heel, peep toe, and then the amazing lace-up front, adorned with gold pyramid studs. 

Also provided is the classic side-zip feature to ensure getting these on and off isn't a tiresome experience!

KG by Kurt Geiger - Kactus Canvas Platform Courts

KG by Kurt Geiger - Kactus Canvas Platform Courts

And who says pink and orange don't go together? This glorious pump from Kurt Geiger's 'KG' collection is divine with a floral canvas body that reminds me of horrendous 70's decor, yet it may sound like I don't appreciate this, but I very much do when it comes to this shoe! 

Further complemented by a patent orange heel and trimming, over-stitching, and then the edge-provider; gold studs covering the toe.
