Shoe Fixation: Red Patent Leather

Red patent-leather is showing up on shoes of all kinds, from platform sandals to pointy-toe heels. Playful, funky, and just a little bit indulgent, these siren-red shoes would look great paired with fall's black tights and gold accents. I just can't help but covet them. Here are some of my favorite finds.

Bebe Liza Sandal, $429, available here.

Manolo Blahnik Patent Bow Pump, $575, available here.

Tara Subkoff for Easy Spirit Essedrie Red Patent Platform, $295, available here.

Three less expensive options, so

Oh…Deer! Garbo Patent Leather Pumps, $110, available here.

Stuart Weitzman Prima Patent Leather Heels, $149.97, available here.

Charles David Pizazz Pump, $89.97, available here.

I guess the first out of all of them isn't too bad...but it still looks too plasticy for me, and for four hundred bucks it's out of the question, i could buy like a week's worth of food with that money

Since when did Bebe start charging Manolo prices for their shoes? I could do red patent, but with a very muted outfit. With shoes like these, you have to let them be the entire focus.

These in particular don't appeal to me, however I have a smashing pair of round toe pumps with a buckle near the toe from Kenneth Cole. I wear them every couple of weeks. The Wizard of Oz comments never fail.

thank you yayita! i don't get it either...at least with the patent red! i just can't get into shiny patent shoes...they remind me too much of second grade in Catholic school. i'm not a little girl anymore and these shoes just don't do it for me!

I think the only red patent I'd feel comfortable wearing would be maybe a ballet flat. But I'd rather have just red leather. Shiny red just reminds me of Dorothy.
