Shoes for spring 2013 came in two varieties: freaky flats or insane heels. (Sure there were still plenty of tasteful pumps, but who can remember those when there are furkenstocks and leather socks to be discussed?)
Céline and Prada’s collections covered both trends, with weird flat shoes in luxury materials (fur at Céline and leather at Prada) and heels that were so elaborate we wondered if anyone could actually wear them at all. In between were 3.1 Phillip Lim’s artful creeper flats, Christopher Kane’s inventive pumps, and Balenciaga’s cubist lace-ups.
