What separates a good shoe from a great shoe? In my opinion, it’s the ability for a footwear designer to rethink classic shape and design. For example, adding embellishment like beading, using unconventional colour combination, as well as reworking a shoe’s shape can create a jaw-dropping effect that will make you want hit the add to cart button.
The Elodie pump by Jean-Michel Cazabat has all of these characteristics. The luxury French designer has taken the classic, pointy toe pump and upgraded it to an edgy shoe which can be worn in the office or out for a night on the town. The use of black leather and blue suede produce a textured look and feel, while the asymmetrical design with its cut-outs and pointed silhouette gives it character and creates intrigue. Buy online.
