Fashion Radar: Spring Shoe Porn Plus New Shoe Stats

Spring shoes are in the stores and as always there are some to lust over. Nudes, Brights ,metallics peep toe and wedges to name a few. Weaponed heels have even been shown in Chanel's 2011 collection. Lagerfeld shown using the gun-heeled shoe as a weapon could be more than a weapon of style.  One of my favorite lust sites, Net-a-porter released new weekly shoe launches including this amazing pair from Brian Atwood for $595.
Bring these Fendi platforms home!
One thing is for sure.. sky is the limit for shoes in 2011 and the higher the better. We are seeing a lot of  platforms whether it be wedges or pumps. We have all been there with Jennifer Lopez made a bandaid spotting at this years Grammys.
