Master Craft

After many years of hard partying in very very high heels, I've officially messed up my feet. Without going into inappropriate TMI detail, they are beyond mangled at this point, and give my husband a good scare (when he deserves a good scare, as he often does). I have an entire closet filled with pumps, boots, and beautiful shoes that are collecting dust, and I'm constantly on the lookout for nice and comfortable flats to add to my completely inadequate selection of reasonable walking shoes. When I saw George Esquivel's Spring presentation, my eyes were opened to a dizzying array of options. Esquivel is an experienced cobbler known for his incredibly crafted handmade shoes, and he presented an assortment of women's, men's, and unisex styles, with nary a high-heel in sight. Inspired by the architecture of Frank Gehry, each shoe offered a decidedly new spin on a classic style. Highlights included suede brogues in eye-popping bright colors, lace-up boots and ankle booties with peekaboo cut-outs, and some T-strap sandals with twisting leather details which revealed flashes of gold.

WOW. I think I would have fainted if in front of all of those works of mastery. Gorgeous shoes. Even more gorgeous colors.

I'm so sorry to hear you're having foot trouble - I hope there is a way you can return to your beloved high-shoe wardrobe. Maybe this means lots of reflexology, foot spas and massages along with other treatment? Thanks for adding the great pics of the yummy flats, I'll take the blue in the first pic, the cutout sandals and the cutout beige boots thanks:) xo
