When you hear about a up-and-coming shoe designer from the Manolo, you should sit up and take notice.
From what I've seen thus far, I have been impressed. I love new designers who are using amazing materials and have a fresh aesthetic untainted by massification. You can still get a luxury product but with a unique look.
And what a look it is. Meet Nicole's Sinamon in blush leather. A gorgeous heeled sandal with white contrasting stitching and pinked-edges. Plus I love the way the multiple straps are layered and they dainty feminine shape.
I was also able to support a new site called Shoe Runway (it's all philanthropic, really). They are making new hot designers available online. Definitely worth checking out. The owner seems super nice. They operate out of the UK but ship to the US.
Since it's so hot here, I plan on wearing these for a while yet.
