I have to be honest—shoes this seaon were kind of a let down. My stand-by favorites like Ann Demeulemeester and Dries van Noten and Celine didn't deliever at all. An exception to this would be Prada & Miu Miu.. Miuccia is never afraid to have fun with the shoes.

Kind of a naughty show girl vibe at Miu Miu with the spectator & butterfly lace up details. The lime green version is my favorite.

I do have one gripe with a pair of shoes at Prada….

The baroque leather bootie would have been a solid 10 if it wasn't for that horrible gimmicky espadrille & foam platform. I made a helpful diagram here to illustrate my point. What a tease–because if you changed the ugly platform to a beautiful solid leather wedge this would be the best shoe of the season for me. I am praying Prada had the good sense to make an all leather variation of this shoe for retail.

These shoes at Prada were amazing though–the checkered woven platform cutie is high on my wishlist.

 Fashion month is right around the corner, so here's to hoping that we'll see more cute shoes!
