Fall 2006 Preview at

While it’s not even summer yet in the real world, the fashion world is already looking ahead at fall. Surprisingly, many of the hottest styles in fall footwear are borrowed directly from spring and summer and updated with darker colors and richer materials. The wildly popular wedge heel is being seen on everything from pumps to booties (the oh-so-now ankle high boots), while round toes clearly dominate the scene. Take a sneak peek at some fabulous styles that Shoebuy has lined up for fall: Aerosoles Interangeable The perfect example of the wedge heel gone fall, the Interchangeable by comfort icon Aerosoles takes the spring wedge heel and puts it on a traditional fall loafer and wraps the whole thing in rich, soft suede. Also features leather lining, contrast stitching and silver hardware. Modern chunky slip on. Has a leather insole with extra-cushion on a 2 1/2" anti-slip rubber wedge. Available in black or brown suede. Grasshoppers Marina Suede The ultimate transition shoe, a ballet flat in suede pairs just as easily with tween cropped pants and slacks as it does with flowy skirts and dresses. This incredibly simple slip-on by Grasshoppers has a beautiful suede upper with a cute patterned insole. My favorite color for this shoe is Rust Suede, which is one of the hottest colors seen on the runways. Also available in Black, Espresso, Navy or Toffee Suede. Rockport Wexford If you need a shoe that’s chic conservative, you can never go wrong with a high-heeled Mary Jane. Simple, sophisticated and most importantly, comfortable, the Wexford by Rockport is an updated, sleeker version of last year’s Providence. Rockport’s signature Sole Innovation provides an extra deep heel cushion, while the very flexible Sachetto construction in the forefoot gives you long-term walking comfort. The polyurethane footbed provides durable cushioning to help prevent foot fatigue. The rubber outsole ensures traction. Kid Suede, Calf Skin and textile are soft and pliable…a sign of high-quality construction. For any woman who has to endure long hours on her feet, with or without a grueling commute, the Wexford provides the right balance between beautiful fall style and classic Rockport reliability. Carlos by Carlos Santana Redemption The Redemption by Carlos is one of the few shoes I’ve seen in a while that not only caught my eye, but also kept it. Honestly, fall fashion doesn't get more gorgeously designed than this. Finely lasered, metallic reptillian printed leather adorns the suede upper on this peep toe pump, creating an effect that truly is ‘redemption’ from the traditional somber tones of fall. Shown in Chocolate Chip Metal Leather; also available in Bark Metal Leather or Foresta Metal Leather. Bronx Chrissy 72952 This classic pointed-toe pump is a must have for any fall wardrobe. From its low-cut silhouette to its sexy high heel, the Chrissy by trend-forward Bronx is one style that will return year after year. Shown here in basic black; also available in Calipso leather or Skin leather. Aerosoles Transpose Another great style that has been re-imagined for the fall is the platform peep toe. The Transpose takes it to the next level by adding a narrow strap across the arch and making it into a Mary Jane. The smooth silhouette sans over the top embellishment creates a sleek line down the foot, interrupted only by delicate silver rivets that accent the peep toe. The upper is made of ultra-soft suede leather with faux suede lining. Features a 3" self-wrapped heel on 1/4" platform. Shown in brown suede; also available in black suede or bone suede.
