Alexander McQueen - Maya Sandals

Alexander McQueen - Maya Sandals

It's like something out of the Lego Movie, a jumble of blocks and shapes that fit perfectly together, but this Alexander McQueen shoe is certainly no childhood toy!

Featuring blue and black snakeskin straps, gold buckles and Plexiglas, it's an unusual combination that would struggle to work for any other label. Then there's the heel...

 

Michael Antonio – Lamiss Snake

Michael Antonio – Lamiss Snake

It might look quite simple, but this stiletto from Michael Antonio is chic, stylish and super versatile, particularly given it's available in a number of different colours! Ten points if you can guess my fave...

Featuring sexy texture with a snake stamped synthetic upper, pointy toe and 11.43cm (4.5 inches) heel. This is the perfect go-to shoe for transitioning between work and play!

Michael Antonio - Kiet

Michael Antonio - Kiet

Say hello to this bootie, an undoubtedly awesome addition to any wardrobe! From Michael Antonio, the bootie is a blend of summer/winter seasons with a peep toe and burnt autumn colouring or black for the traditional, always applicable situation! 

Taking notes out of the sneaker stylebook, this bootie features a cuffed heel, lace up front and snake stamped panel details on the side. Heel height comes in at 10.2cm (6 inches!) with a 3.8cm (1.5 inch) platform.

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). 

Jason Wu - Snake-Print Strappy Cage Sandal

Jason Wu - Snake-Print Strappy Cage Sandal

It's time for a strappy sandal number and this bold, bright number from Jason Wu is just the ticket to get you in the mood for summery soirées! Now generally yellow isn't my colour, but I'm willing to make the odd exception, particularly in the world of shoes. To make this shoe even more enticing than the web of straps contributing to the cage description, there's also perfectly placed snakeprint. 

It's simply screaming a number of things such as cocktail party, and maybe buy me as well!

ShoNews - Nicholas Kirkwood - AW13

ShoNews - Nicholas Kirkwood - AW13

What's new from Nicholas Kirkwood? Well... quite a lot actually! So it seemed only fitting that the designer's latest new season styles get a feature within the ShoNews spot - particularly as there are quite a few to cover off! 

Providing us with varying styles, you will be pleased to know that the latest to come out from Nicholas Kirkwood definitely embraces his signature traits while offering some new tasty treats to sit alongside!

Giuseppe Zanotti - Nirvana

Giuseppe Zanotti - Nirvana

Brand new from Giuseppe Zanotti, this stylish sandal is the epitome of style statement and provides us with a sneak peek of the Spring/Summer 2014 collection. Dubbed the Nirvana, and described as 'Pure Seduction', it sure lives up to its name with an absolutely gorgeous silhouette inspired by "the harmonious female shape combined with the sensuality that the snake accessory represents". 

The main portion of the shoe is a soft black snakeskin print, strappy and sexy, and then to take things a little further is the alluring gold snake jewel ankle strap. 

Kennel and Schmenger - Silver Trainers

Kennel and Schmenger - Silver Trainers

You say Tomatoe, I say Tomatoe... okay that doesn't work quite so well in 'type-speak' but you say trainer, I say sneaker is a little more effective, and regardless of the lingo, this trainer/sneaker is cool in any language. From Kennel and Schmenger, we blast into the futuristic look with metallic silver finish embossed with a snakeskin print, hawt!

The flat rubber sole and high-top keep the look casual enough to rock with a pair of skinnies, and the zips up the side and back are super cool. 

ShoNews - Brian Atwood and B by Brian Atwood - Fall13 Collection

ShoEducation - YES

ShoEducation - YES

Having since featured YES in ShoNews, I am so pleased to be able to inform you the mystery of YES is solved. That's right, it turns out this brand is actually "an underground project produced by Solestruck" and while there is something sexy and alluring about the unknown, after discovering this info, I felt compelled to inform my loyal Writing in Heels fans.

If you haven't already, take a look at ShoNews - What's New from YES, as this will give you a good idea of the kind of style and shoe you can come to expect from YES.

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!

B by Brian Atwood - Fontanne Hologram Snakeskin Pump

B by Brian Atwood - Fontanne Hologram Snakeskin Pump

You might be looking at this heel from Brian Atwood's label, B by Brian Atwood, and thinking it looks slightly familiar - this is because it technically has actually featured on Writing in Heels before! Not one to double up, I have justification for this reappearance and that is the colour scheme.

There are some heels that feature the same design but in different colour palettes and have you tossing and turning at night as to which colour to for, and this Fontanne Hologram Snakeskin Pump definitely falls into that category!
