Extreme Shoes

Big Bird Shoes

These new spring stilettos by Celine are a little unusual.  Bright, yellow and furry all over is something you don’t see every day in fashion. Do you dare to try something this risky?






Electric Neon

These neon green shoes are not for the faint of heart. With a pointy toe and an equally pointy stiletto heel, you are sure to receive plenty of double takes in these new Christian Dior heels.





Patchwork Boot

These boots by Alexander Wang are a blast from the past. They are reminiscent of the patchwork platforms that were a hit in the 80’s and 90’s but have a modern, gladiator twist. The boots go over the calf, although they don’t cover much of it. They also have a very chunky heel which makes them somewhat practical? Ok, maybe not but we don’t care.





Surprise Inside

This Prada shoe looks like a wrapped present, literally.  What’s the surprise inside? This heeled sandal doubles as a boot. Where the red ribbon stops the leather boot begins.






Bright Prints

These Nicholas Kirkwood heels scream spring. These shoes could teach you a thing or two about mixing and matching patterns and prints. They’ve got a bright colorful print on the sides with beaded laces. These are hands down a statement piece for any spring wardrobe. If the skinny heel doesn’t trip you up the intense colors will.



 all these shoes are sold at Neiman Marcus.
