Statement Shoes – Writing about post-modern shoes on Friday motivated me to try some serious shoes on for size. Along the way, I ended up StyleSpotting these incredible 4.5 inch talon heels by way of Nicholas Kirkwood for RODARTE F/W 2010. Kirkwood specializes in creating architectural statement shoes for designer runway shows (Rodarte, John Rocha, Ghost) and has quite a colorful past. Of course I just had to videotape one of my favorite trendsetters teetering in her talons. You can check out the VIDEO BELOW and catch more about Kirkwood at the bottom.
Nicholas Kirkwood is a German-born designer with an eclectic history working with milliner Phillip Treacy and even living with the late Isabel Blow before Visionaire’s Cecilia Dean hooked him up with Rodarte’s Mulleavy sisters. His mission? To be the next Christian Louboutin. You can find these $2,195 shoes at one of my favorite shops. @StyleSpotting
