It is a widely-acknowledged fact for Fall/Winter 2011: it’s going to a bleak season for shoes. Save for a few stellar updates on otherwise perfectly classic silhouettes, the assortment was, by and large, underwhelming. You’d think with all that hullabaloo over YSL v. Louboutin that the shoes would be otherwordly. Not so. In fact, I’m willing to wager all that fuss was orchestrated for the express purpose of distracting us from the fact that the collections are, sans fanfare,… hardly noteworthy.
Leave it to Casadei to fill a void in the market. Snakeskin platform with a sculpted wood heel? Yes, please. Stave off the winter doldrums with this pair, one of the few worth buying this season.
