When it comes to shoes, I’m not an impulse shopper. I typically pass by shop windows and go in to browse the latest selection multiple times before zeroing in on the pair that will best suit my wardrobe. After an extremely long winter spent scuffing up my peep-toe platform booties and trying to keep my flat leather boots clean, I’m looking forward to showing off some stand-out footwear for spring. Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement or to have one go-to pair as soon as the snow melts, Aldo’s latest designer collaboration is one to look out for.
At New York Fashion Week, Julian Louie’s collection had editors and bloggers buzzing about the footwear. The former architecture student used patches of suede and cotton to create a collage of tribal and ikat prints. Play with patterns or keep things neutral in the classic nude pair. These Julian Louie x Aldo open-toe wedges will be arriving in Aldo stores in the coming weeks. So if you’re anything like me, start deciding which pair is your favourite.
