La Canadienne - Callie Black Croco

This is a classic. Riding boots never go out of style.

But these have the luxury of lasting not only stylishly but physically through multiple seasons. The Callie By La Canadienne is fantastic. They're waterproof with 35mm heel for traction in inclement weather. Antibacterial  breathable microfibre lining keeps those feet dry and comfortable. Oh yeah did I mention the memoryfoam insole? I mean what more can you want from such beautiful boots. Oh yeah they also come in black and brown leather. $334.95 @Zappos...

Fred Perry Oakfield Nylon

Sometimes you want an alternative to the same ol' Adidas/Converse/Puma/Nike merry-go-round. Well, check out the Fred Perry - Oakfield Nylon. The shape is somewhere between a Samba and Rod Laver. They look awesome and the men can style get that international look with the dark jeans and blazer/ sport coat. But I would wear em for a sporty polo dress preppy look. And only $79 @Piperlime, You can stock up on multiples.

La Canadienne - Margarita Black Croco

Amazingly understated, classically chic Margarita from La Canadienne in black croco defines both form and function. Waterproof leather (think of Montreal boot weather) ribbed outer sole, with a microfiber lining that's antibacterial. The inner sole has 3 mm of memory foam for cushion against those city streets. For $344.95@Zappos it's an investment for multiple seasons.

Everyday Luxury : La Canadienne Megan

Well we all know we love shoes. And we all have a tendency to lust for the big name, three-mortgage-payment pair, as total luxury. Maybe we can learn to appreciate another definition of luxury.

In the words of Gabriele 'Coco' Chanel, “Luxury is not the opposite of poverty, it is the opposite of vulgarity.”

So there's is more to luxury than we think. A fresh honey crisp apple, To know the art of cooking, Creativity, Or to dance when you want... That's luxury... Let's take another look at shoes

Par Example:Winter is coming. We all want to look fantastic! But winter is murder on shoes. Not only is it the cold temperatures mixed with the extra cold precipitation. But top it off with salt and chemicals used to keep sidewalks and streets clear. Havoc...

Solution, La Canadianne's Stylish, comfortable and The Megan can go from work to play with the high quality Italian leathers crafted for sustainability. The luxury is in the waterproof style but also that they will last season after season With an investment of $297.95@ Zappos, that's everyday luxury...

Exhibition: The FullerCraft Museum

So you want to sqeeze out the last bit of fun. The Fullercraft Museum in Brockton Mass. Has  show about New England's shoe making history called, "The Perfect fit: Shoes Tell Stories" And judging by the look of this slide show, it's going to be very interesting. It's on through January 3,2010. So sometime between now and then, we should all go. Let me know what you guys think, when you go.


Marjorie Schick’s “Chopines and Puddles” is a fantastical evocation, in painted wood, plastic, and papier maché, of a platform shoe popular in Venice and England in the late 16th century.
