Feteafete.com Finds Shoe Bliss with Chie Mihara & We Concur!!
Once again, Feteafete.com beat me to the punch, though I heard about this line and was just trying to get to the point of writing about it — and was busy resizing photos of shoes, boots and lots more lovely little things that call out to me — as they called out to Tami from the Chie Mihara shoe collection.
Tami showed off the great shoes like this Misha:
I am definitely putting the the strong and sexy Misha heels on my wish list. I love the tan cotton contrast piping around the red suede. Gorgeous! These could almost be tango shoes. Sometimes I feel that thin stiletto heels will break off at the most unfortunate situations, but these heels will last a long time.
Why is this line so scorchingly hot and popular?
Chie Mihara has created designs that are about feminine style. She also believes that a shoe line won’t be successful unless it’s really comfortable to wear. Chie makes sure that she has plenty of cushioning in the footbed and she thinks about the feel of the shoe on the foot, allowing room for toes to wiggle and still be sexy.
Another factoid to add into the mix is that this line is hand-made and there isn’t a ton of the shoes running around so you won’t see yourself coming and going on other people. Consider this a “cult” line and it’s cult-like following is growing by the minute — I am forever talking about it.
I should just learn to shut my mouth and buy the shoes instead. However then you wouldn’t know about the line plus if you saw me wear them, you would ask me about them anyway. Consider this a forewarning– this line is highly addictive in boots, sandals (of which I saw at least 3 pairs I would love to add to my collection in both boots and sandals).
I got a bead on this line and while Tami featured other styles, I went in an entirely different direction and here are a few of my picks:
Atom Embellished Pump
When I see a line I consider quite unusual, I usually have a real lust fest and here are a few more that I found– haven’t found a store that’s carrying them but these are so on my wish list– and I better wish for a sugar daddy to buy them for me. (pretty please with sugar on top!)
Allegra in a ostrich-embossed leather — there are three colors in the collection.
Amuse (which has serious lust going for it)
Amira, a nifty t-strap pump done in croc-embossed leather.
This isn’t the only post you will see about Chie Mihara and her fabulous shoe line. There’s a lot more coming in the pipeline.
