Nautical-inspired footwear is sailing the high seas for Spring ’14 with primary colors and campy maritime motifs. Brazil-based Mel interpreted classic Breton stripes as ropes on chunky wedge silhouettes. Similarly Jon Josef added a resort vibe to smoking slippers with anchor embroideries. For a more classic take on the nautical trend, brands like Johnston & Murphy and Dr. Scholl’s mixed in bold stripes and washed chambray.
Jeffrey Campbell’s multi-zipper open-toe wedge boot offers a fresh take on this fall’s ubiquitous hard-edged rock ‘n’ roller look. The sleek silhouette plus piled-on accoutrements make this shoe a true traffic-stopper—one we’d rock season after season, song after song.
