With the Fall season fast approaching, it looks like it’s time to get into every fashionista’s favorite type of shoes: boots. Lead Buyer, Danielle, recently purchased a pair of military-inspired Mia Ximena boots for her own wardrobe to prep for the season. According to Danielle: “They have this old, vintage-y feel. The leather is burnished which gives it depth too instead of just a plain, solid color. And they go with pants and cute skirts so they’re versatile.”

I may or may not have already shared something about Back To The Future shoes. Really, there have been plenty of people who have tried their hand at creating the self-lacing sneakers envisioned in Back To The Future II. But now, a designer/engineer/fan named Blake Bevin has not only created a working model–he’s also provided detailed step-by-step instructions on how to make your own. See his Power Lacing Nikes in action below. If you’d like a pair of your own, you can check out Instructables for full directions. Excuse me as I cry in all my geek glory.

We previewed the new BOBS by Skechers shoes earlier this week and now they’re available on www.shoemetro.com (I know–super-quick, right?). Like we said before, these BOBS by Skechers are inspired by the TOMS shoes 1-to-1 charity model: for every pair of BOBS that’s sold, Skechers will donate a second pair to a child in need. Have a heart and try a pair of BOBS.
We have the traditional BOBS shoes–called Earth Day–with classic canvas in Navy, Gray, and Black. But we also have a sequined spin on those BOBS, Earth Mama, in Black and Silver. Click the links for your fave color or you can also click on the images below to check them out.

I’m not sure what’s with the whole obsession with turning sneakers into heels or anything that’s higher class than sneakers. I guess there might be something democratic in mixing low brow with high brow. Or maybe it’s just really avant-garde like that. Of course, sometimes taking risks doesn’t work out.
Case in point: Burberry Prorsum platform “pumps.” They’re sneakers with ginormous demi-wedge heels, a sort of monstrous, Frankenstein-ish hybrid of platforms, wedges, and casual sneakers (they’re even green like Frankenstein). They take “chunky” to a whole new, wholly dangerous level. These shoes look like walking around with giant anvils in your shoes. The designer gods weep before them.
Insult to injury: you’ll have to shell out $850 for these. Check them at Net-A-Porter.

Following the lead of the famous TOMS shoes, Skechers has released their charity line of shoes called BOBS. And we just received them in our warehouse. The BOBS collection by Skechers are flat espadrille shoes inspired by the South American alpargata shoe. They are really comfy and relaxed. The bigger picture is that for every pair of BOBS that you buy, Skechers will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need. Check them out below.
They’ll be available at www.shoemetro.com soon enough. Until then, don’t bother Jenny–she’s on a very important phone call, as you can see.

Ugly Shoes seemed to hate these booties but I think they actually look good. These shoes are a collaboration between United Nude and designer Iris van Herpen. Not sure if they were inspired by chainmail in the least. But they certainly look strong enough to stop a broadsword hit.
What do you think about these shoes?
