Gotta Have Sole
Gone are the times when the only thing on the bottom of your shoe was a piece of discarded chewing gum; these days the decorations on the sole of your heels are just as important as the top and sides. Whether they be swathed in deep red like Christian Louboutin’s or covered in Swarovski crystal dust like Rene Caovillo’s red-carpet-ready heels, soles are new the canvas on which a brand paints its unique signature. The latest bedecked sole comes from shoe designer Cesare Paciotti who has outfitted his Spring/Summer 2011 shoes with a nude sole printed with a black lace design. Like a brief flash of lace lingerie, the effect is flirtatious and fun.
