Classic shapes, repulsive beauty and stunning creativity in footwear.
Welcome to Shoe Pr0n.
You won't find any dainty strappy numbers, flip flops, or gladiator sandals here. If you think Uggs or Crocs are acceptable forms of footwear, we probably won't get along. There are a million shoe blogs out there, but as this one is curated by me it is obviously going to be full of fabulous things.

I’m usually not a big fan of what some folks call “corset lacing” on shoes. I think it’s a cheap, mindless way to make a normal shoe “sexy”. However, there is something about these that I kind of like- I think it’s the fact that the lacing becomes a little messy and almost functional looking.
Shiny corners to contrast the supple navy leather. Lovely.
1920s leather boots by Maniatis Bottier at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Kink has a long standing history in footwear.
Now I have to go to the Met this week.
Dries van Noten.
For the girl that can’t decide between boots or sling backs.
