Video Review: Fall 2008 Hottest Shoes

Written by Beauty Match. Posted in Age Reversal, Anti Aging Research, Bags & Shoes, Beauty Video Reviews


When it comes to shoes, we’ll see a few recurring trends and a few surprises this upcoming season.

The pointy toe black pump is de rigeur (must have) again and we’re going back to the equestrian boot. The new spin on the equestrian boot is that it’s a knee high boot. I don’t know how many women might have equestrian boots in their wardrobe. They were popular quite a number of years ago and it will be interesting to see who will dust off their old pair or fork out money to buy the newer models.

If you had bought some high heeled booties a few years ago when they were in fashion, you can pull them out again, but they are trendy.

One of the most surprising trends to me is the “winter sandal”. I’ve got to admit to not being sure I can warm up to this idea because I really don’t like wearing nylons to start off with and the idea of nylons and sandals has always been a huge no-no in my book.

That said, the biggest trend of the season is the high heel winter sandal or the platform winder sandal with nylons or thighs. I will go out on a limb here and say that this is a look that might work really well on 20-something women, but I’d err on the cautious side for women in their 40s and up because it might look a bit matronly.

You’ll also notice a number of really sexy high heeled shoes for those out there who have mastered the art of walking around in heels (not moi). I really love a pair of Christian Louboutin that you’ll see in the video below, but I would really walk quite ungracefully if I attempted to stroll around in those shoes.

I’d like to thank luxury retailer Holt Renfrew for agreeing to let take these photo to share them with my readers.

Here’s the list of brands that you’ll see and the corresponding price (prices are in Canadian and no doubt cheaper in the U.S.):

I hope you’ll enjoy the video below and I hope this will inspire you:

Miu Miu heels ($685)

Miu Miu heels ($785)

Dries Van Noten winter strappy sandals ($715)

YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) platform shoes ($870)

Giuseppe Zanotti booties ($925)

Pura Lopez shoes ($420)

Marc by Marc Jacobs green resin heeled shoe ($595)

Michael Kors winter sandal ($148)

Christian Louboutin killer heel ($1020)

Prada purple shoe ($685)

The same principle goes for these shoes as for the bags I featured in my earlier post … they might not fit everyone’s budget, but you can use the trends as inspiration if you cannot afford them!

    I can’t get into those winter sandals! I think it’s because my feet are always cold anyway and letting the freezing, winter air in to blow on my toes makes me shiver just thinking about it. But the equestrian boots – love them! Boots are my very favorite shoes anyway, so I can’t wait to check out all the new styles!

    My feet are ALWAYS cold as well and I cannot imagine wearing winter sandals when it’s freezing outside or when it’s raining.

    It will be quite interesting to see if this runway look translates to the real way and if ordinary women actually follow the catwalk!
