SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Givenchy

Givenchy mules first debuted last year in New York Fashion Week on the Spring/Summer 2016 runway, where it caused that notorious Candice Swanepoel & other model’s fashion week fall.  Nonetheless, these Italian-made Givenchy mules are exquisitely beautiful, featuring a lizard-effect and smooth metallic leather.  Pair these with a colorful, monochromatic outfit to accentuate the silver heels.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Delpozo

Delpozo’s new creative director Josep Font has been a breath of fresh air for the brand following Jesus del Pozo’s passing in 2011.  He has managed to remain true to the brand’s Spanish roots, with colorful designs and prints, while mixing in feminine and romantic vibes.

These velvet pumps are a perfect example of the playful, yet ladylike aesthetic.  These flirty heels are covered in pink and navy velvet, with a 4″ chunky heel.  Finish off the look with a below-the-knee skirt and high-collar blouse for a polished, yet refined look.

SHOE PORN THURSDAY: Dior

“Women, with their intuitive instinct, understood that I dreamed not only of making them more beautiful, but happier too.” -Christian Dior.

 

Dior is known for their high-quality, intricately designed pieces.  A shining example are these Cognac Calfskin Ankle Boots by Dior, a perfect boot to accompany the autumn weather.  They first debuted in the Autumn/Winter 2015-2016 runway show, and are composed of calfskin and crocodile.  The construction was inspired by the Opanca technique, an old-fashioned way of constructing shoes in which they are hand-sewn and use a double needle sewing technique to attach the sock lining, sole, and upper part of the shoes to each other in one process.
