color is such an important part of my life (which you probably know if you've been reading my blog for, well, any length of time). color in fashion has always been one of the simplest ways for me to express my love for all things bright and beautiful. shoes and accessories are sometimes the easiest way to throw on a splash of whatever color you're feeling like at the moment. that being said...sometimes shoes themselves are a wardrobe of brilliantly gorgeous colors. Chie Mihara manages to create absolutely stunning shoes that are just as good to your feet as they are to your eyes. Ms. Mihara worked at an orthopedic shoe store, where she learned all about foot anatomy and common foot problems. she uses this knowledge to create shoes that are specifically designed for a woman's foot. so in this case, you don't have to sacrifice comfort for fashion. and with all of the gorgeous detail put into each shoe and all of the wonderful color palettes, these shoes truly are a work of art.
ps- all of these photos are from the Spring Summer 2010 collection.
