Looking For Cynthia's Shoes

I posted a query about Cynthia Rowley's great shoes on the Cynthia Rowley blog, and her staff promptly replied. It's very embarrassing that I'm all cheesy and ask her if she's "going to do shoes," and of course the shoes are hers! Oh well, once a geek....Sadly, the shoes are sold out.

But I've been prowling 34th Street, where there is nothing similar although I still have to check out the entire Macy's shoe floor on 5. Usually I get stuck right by the elevator amongst the Hale Bobs, the Betsey Johnsons, the Biviels, the Fryes, the Sam Edelmans, et al. Here are some eye-catchers, not necessarily anything like Cynthia's. First up, Steve Madden:







Aileenn $99.95 (warning, these are patent); Togga $99.95; and the very fun Blosommm, black & multi-colored, $69.95. Get the feeling Steve Madden is running out of shoe names?

From Bakers, the Gweneth, so not like Cynthia's but sort of irresistible, especially as they're $19.99 ;








And from Aldo;





Paramaribo $100, Celabinsk $64.98, and Kolwezi, black and brown, $64.98. I wish the heel on the oxford was different (maybe chunkier & taller?) but I love the idea of a beige oxford shoe boot. And the heel height on the Kolwezi rivals Gwenyth's McQueens.

I also dropped by Shoe Mania and saw nothing like the Cynthia but discovered these:


Have you guys heard of Pikolinos? I kind of fell in love; they are so hippy and hand-crafted and environmentally conscious (but not vegan!). I'm grooving on the natural look of the sandals, especially for this season although these shoes are definitely lifers, don't you think? Here's some more from their website, but not seen at Shoe Mania. I really covet the ankle strap flat in the middle.

Aldo, 15 W. 34th between 5th & 6th
Bakers Shoes on 34th Street @ 5th Avenue
Shoe Mania, 11 W. 34th between 5th & 6th

Cynthia does really great low heels, perfect for high heel wimps like me:)

i have gone shoe mad! which i guess is much better than just plain mad. so glad to pass on the pikolinos love, and, times of glory, I hope to see you wearing them on your fabulous blog soon.i'm going to also check out cynthia's low heels - where do you get them, e4s?

these are all great options! can't wait to see which you choose :)

I've always stocked up at the sample sale, actually! They do them twice a year and they're super organized with a great assortment...particularly for size 6.5's like me (that must be her sample size). I think they usually go for $75/pair.

fashion herald said...

oh my god, eye4style, you have to remind us when the sale comes up...

Gosh, never heard of 'em but I am so going to Shoe Mania after work!
