Once you have exhausted bags as status items shoes await you in all their glory, as we were reminded by the sheer variety of brands and styles on display at Sole Commerce. If Spring 2009 can offer one thing to the shoe buyer its "anything," and no we don't mean to be glib. Oh! Deer, Farylrobin, Tom's Shoes, Aquatalia, Chi Mihara, United Nude, Terra Plana, and Naughty Monkey were just some of the brands that caught our wandering eye.
The Spring 2009 shows may have only finished a few days ago in New York but savvy fashion watchers know its all about what gets bought. Many runway favorites were at Coterie ENK's impressive tradeshow at the Javitt's Center. Fresh off the runway looks from Charles Nolan, Badgley Mischka, Carmen Marc Valvo and Tadashi Shoji were causing quite the stirr. After all, you need to see the garments up close before you open up the check book!
