Kanye West & Nike Release The Yeezy 2

Aaaaaaaand Kanye’s at it again. Word on the steets is that his new Yeezy 2 Nike kicks are creating quite the stir, boasting $90,000 eBay bids and causing fans of the rapper’s Yeezy line of shoes to flip their lids.

Nike stores apparently got smart after the release of the first Yeezy shoe created mass chaos in 1990. They’ve implemented their Twitter RSVP Raffle in an effort to avoid bodily injury, the need to camp out for a week to get a pair, and to remind us that even as adults who apparently have a few hundred extra buckaroos to blow on sneakers we will never wear, we still present the need for extra special control measures via the Twitterverse.

Other stores that will carry the Yeezy 2 have followed suit, and implemented raffles of their own, as only a mere dozen or so pairs of shoes will be alotted to each store. Only about 5,000 pairs total are set to be released.

While pre-sale auctions are under way offering the shoe for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,000, the Yeezy 2 will go on sale this Saturday for a retail price of $245.

Krysten Ritter + Keds + Allure Magazine

Allure featured actress Krysten Ritter from the ABC sitcom Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt 23 in the “Beauty Reporter” section of their June 2012 edition. She’s rockin’ red lips and some sweet red Keds. Champion Original Keds, to be exact. Like what you see? I wonder who could help you land some luscious red Keds like Miss Ritter’s…

…oh wait. I can! The ease with which you can dress them up or down makes them perfect for any and every summer occasion. My personal faves are these delicious Mint Chocolate Chip (that’s not really the color, I just threw that in beacuse the actual color is Aqua…boring) Keds Champion Candy Stripe sneaks.

Would You Ever….

…buy shoes designed by Kanye West?

He raps, he manages record labels, he steals the spotlight from sweet country bumpkins giving awards speeches, and he…designs shoes?

That’s right, folks. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better. Kanye West teamed up with shoemaker Giuseppe Zanotti to create two pairs of women’s shoes that most of us would have to take out a loan to own.

These stiletto sandals, crafted from calf leather (calling all PETA members!), are embroidered with enough pearls to make an oyster cry. Price tag: $4,968.07 (plus shipping + handling from Paris, of course).

The more affordable (ha!) option are these strappy stiletto sandals in black. Also made from calf leather, but sans the ocean accoutrements, you can add these kicks to your collection for a mere $792.

So, let’s say you were just handed a check for $5,000. Which pair would you spring for?

After The Oscars | Fashion Feats And Fashion Flops

The stars hit the red carpet on Sunday with uber class, and a little sass. Or maybe, uber sass and a little class. Either way, with bling shining, hair flowing and faces glowing, the stars flaunted their best (and worst) ensembles for the commoners (aka you and me) to oogle over. And yes, we’re judging them. So while you’re crammed in coach, cruisin’ in your sub-compact import, or chillin’ in your postage stamp-sized apartment, take comfort knowing that we can openly turn our noses up at celeb fashion flops.

We’re head over heels for this glittery number! We all know glitter is where it’s at right now, so jump on the bandwagon and shine it up! We’d pair this enviable ensemble with these hot heels.

Golly, we love Emma Stone – what’s not to adore? We just can’t help but wonder which mirror told her this would be it – this would be the dress she takes to the Academy Awards. She’s yelling at us through her wardrobe. Whispers, Emma. It’s whispers that get the most attention. Anyway, if the dress doesn’t do it for you, these shoes certainly will! We’d pair this fuchsia number with these classy pumps.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this one has a lot to say. But we have questions for you, photograph. 1) Is Anna Faris drunk, or does she have a peg leg and we just didn’t know it? 2) Why did she dip herself in latex before she went to the Oscars? Rhetorical questions, of course, we love this funny front woman when she’s at her best. This just isn’t one of those times.

So Adele swept the 2012 Grammys – anyone surprised?  Her sultry voice and style to match make the singer irresistible to both our eyes and our ears.  The singer looked every bit the Vogue cover girl that she is, channeling the best of the 60′s with her red lips and cat eyes.  Elegance became her as she donned a shimmering Giorgio Armani gown and Louboutin heels to match.  Think Marilyn Monroe meets Dorothy in the Emerald City.  We think her sparkle-tastic shoes were a total hit.

Since we can’t run out and snag a pair of Christian Louboutin heels, here are a few affordable options we have in our line-up. Hopefully they’ll have you clicking your heels together three times and saying, “There’s no place like Shoe Metro, there’s no place like Shoe Metro, there’s no place like Shoe Metro.”

Enjoy!

Jimmy Choo Wins The Oscars Shoe Game

The one thing that didn’t get nearly enough attention at this year’s Oscars was the footwear. No one could really be blamed, seeing as all the stars seemed aligned in their determination to hide beautiful heels and pumps behind long, overflowing dresses. However, the wonderful bloggers at Your Next Shoes were able to peak behind the dresses (somehow–I think we’d rather not know how, actually) and find out what the Red Carpet elite were swagging out with this year. And it turns out that several of them chose Jimmy Choo, making Jimmy Choo the big winner in the unofficial “Best Shoes” category at the Oscars.

Celebrity Sightings: Keds

When I think of Keds the first thing that comes to mind is tennis shoes, but that is no longer so!

Over the past couple years Keds has partnered with designers to create limited edition collections. The first one I can remember being really excited about was the Nanette Lepore for Keds collection.

Lady Gaga Wears Meat, McQueen, and Spikes at the 2010 MTV VMAs

Lady Gaga will never cease to turn heads with her daring fashion sense. At last night’s MTV VMA’s, Lady Gaga donned three different outfits that seemed to compete with each other for the Most Outrageous Outfit of the night.

The most talked-about dress is Gaga’s meat dress, below:

When walking the red carpet earlier that evening, Gaga wore a dress designed by the late Alexander McQueen. It looked a little like the ceiling from the Sistene Chapel. What the pic doesn’t show is that she was also wearing the famous Armadillo heels from her “Bad Romance” music video. Check it out after the jump: Continue Reading…

Weird Shoe Wednesday: Skeleton Heels

Do you have really bony feet? If not, do you want bony feet? Alicia Keys certainly does. She was rocking these platform pumps with tall skeletal heels last week at the FIFA World Cup 2010 Kick-Off concert. These heels come from Dsquared2′s Fall/Winter 2010 collection.

You can check out footage of Alicia Keys’ on-stage performance at the World Cup concert below. There are some pretty clean shots of Alicia in these shoes. Continue Reading…
