So Shoe Me ~ 6/03/2012

Today's So Shoe Me is the Floam by Substitute, $130, available at Solestruck. "Go big, or go home." This quote applies to life and footwear and Substitute has taken the platform wedge to new extremes in this black leather chunk o' sole. A synthetic upper looks like luxe black leather but keeps the price point down and the style vegan friendly. Modern clear straps at the front add an unexpected edge and give these heavy shoes a lightness that's perfect for summer. A 6.75" wedge and 4.5" platform add a major style defining lift perfect for kicking up the volume on simple separates. Pair these crazy tall wedges with a thin cotton t-shirt dress in basic black with minimal accessories for a modern summer style.

So Shoe Me a pair of chunky reach the sky platform wedges that will lift up my summer style with a signature black style.

So Shoe Me ~ 5/19/2012

Today's So Shoe Me is the Trotter by Substitute, $128, available at Karmaloop. So tell me what ya want (what ya really, really want)? If you answered with a spiced up sky high platform sneaker then you're in luck because Substitute has the perfect style for your own personal zigga-zig-ahhh moment. Revisit this 90s classic complete with 4.5" wedge, sportswear design and suede upper for a mix of trendy + comfort. The contrasting black and white design adds versatility to this signature sneaker. It can be paired with candy sportswear brights, all shades of denim or even a striped t-shirt dress. Get even more retro by pairing these chunky sneaks with some denim overalls and a feather weight black and white striped tee.

So Shoe Me ~ 6/24/2011

Today's So Shoe Me is the Club Kid by Substitute, $149, available at I Don't Like Monday's. A large and in charge flatform in serious all black leather let's the world know you aren't taking crab from anyone in these edgy statement making shoes. The over sized seven inch heel leaves an awkward proportion that becomes bold and cool when paired with sleek black separates (or even a print to add some warmth). This shoe is also perfect for editorials since it adds a signature twist to the basic black platform. Of course this shoe isn't an everyday option but if worn with the right pieces it can be a signature piece within your shoedrobe. Pair this funky lace-up with a silk chiffon jumpsuit, like this gorgeous draped one by Funktional (available at Pixie Market) for a mix of flowy, sheer and feminine with edgy, dark and androgyny.

So Shoe Me a pair of uber high heels that bring the edge back to wedge and crazy unique fun styling back to fashion.

* Look for additional sizes at Karmaloop.
