Oscar-Worthy Styles | Flashy, Or Less Is More?

Hello again, Oscar! The Academy Awards are this Sunday, February 26,  and we know we’ll see a lot of new styles, new twists on old styles, and everything in between.  We can’t wait to see what some of our fave stars and starlets stir up!

While Hollywood is busy prepping, primping, and perming (well, maybe not that), we took some time to pick out a few Oscar-worthy styles that are prime head-turning, envy inspiring footwear fashions.

Turns out all that glitters is not gold (sorry to disappoint), but with all the attention sparkle-laden fashions are getting these days, these shoes may as well be as good as gold!
Animal print or bust!  Let’s Face it – animal print never gets old.  Unless, of course, you’re Nicki Minaj.  Toned down and paired with an equally awesome ensemble you can’t go wrong.

For those of us who are intimidated by making a statement with our feet, there are the classic Oscar-inspired looks.  Sometimes…less is more.

Tell us which stars you think will rock the best Oscar style!

Bearpaw Photo Shoot With Local Surf Phenom

Aloha all!  So, this post is a bit different than what you are used to seeing, but the past couple weeks have seen epic surf here in San Diego, and all the toes on the nose bros and surfer gals at Shoe Metro have certainly been taking advantage.  We wanted to share some awesome pics taken right here in our own backyard, of some of our very own local surf gurus and Shoe Metro family.

Also have to give a shout out to super grom Tiare Thompson – home grown right here in La Jolla.  Check out this snapshot from our Bearpaw photo shoot with this talented young surfer, and let us know how awesome she is!

It’s not flip-flop season just yet, so don’t forget to check out our favorite lineup of Bearpaws that will keep your tootsies warm after a refreshing spring surf sesh.  Even better – they’re 30% off with the coupon BEARPAW30!  Your favorite pair of Bearpaw boots or slippers is just a click away – but hurry – the coupon expires tomorrow…

Trending Now | Glitter Gals

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!

Our online sale for Father’s Day just ended earlier this morning. But if you’re in San Diego, our retail store has been featuring the same promotion and the sale will continue until this coming Saturday, June 18. You can get $10 OFF any purchase of $50 or more. It’s actually open to our entire inventory so while you’re shopping for Dad, you can get something for yourself too (or maybe skip the whole “shopping for Dad” part entirely, hah).

Weird Shoe Fridays: Paper Shoes

It’s been a long time! Sorry for being away so long. It’s been extra, extra busy in the office trying to prepare for the upcoming holidays. But I couldn’t leave this week without showing you some more quirky shoe-ish things.

These are cardboard sculptures by artist Mike Leavitt. Leavitt is a big fan of sneaker culture so many of his sculptures are paper re-creations of iconic sneakers. But he’s also expanded into other territories, making a boot and women’s heel as well. Here are some of my favorites below. Be sure to look at all of his sculptures on his website here. You can even buy some for yourself! =)

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.

After that I was in love with the Alice + Olivia collection for Keds, super cute sequin covered champions!

If you want to be even more exclusive you can create your own personalized Keds at the Keds Studio or on Zazzle – a DIY website where you can completely customize your own pair of Keds.

Keds have been coming out with some really cute updates in fabrication and colors to their classic Champion styles. And even their original classic styles have been spotted on all sorts of celebrities. Check out these celebs that were spotted wearing Keds around town.
