“Barbara Bui’s python shoe is a must- have for spring because of the snake- skin texture. Python is going to be huge this year and it goes with everything. This shoe can definitely make an outfit.”
~ Emily Dees Boulden, owner, Swank Boutique in Atlanta and Birmingham, AL
"The design that I am in love with, that I want to sleep with every night, is Diane von Furstenberg’s Alexandria laser-cut suede bootie with an open toe. I’ve been lusting after this shoe since we saw it at market last fall—it’s freaking fabulous. It’s definitely for that woman who’s comfortable in her style, who knows her look and marches to her own beat. But it’s still very understandable. It’s just that perfect shoe that keeps you light and airy for summer but is not a sandal."
~ Dan Mauney, owner, Step by Sloan,
“I’m really excited about Rachel Comey’s Ipswich Brogue Wedge in silver leather on a wooden wedge heel. It’s a perfect spring shoe for me because it’s so interesting: Somehow it’s all at once futuristic, menswear-ish and old-school New England.”
