FALL/WINTER 2011-2012 MUST-HAVE FOOTWEAR

I'm sure all you guys with shoe fetish are dying to see my footwear picks for this season...

1. KILLER HEELS 
My infatuation with killer heels started with my first YSL Jonnys some 3-4 years ago. Standing at 5'8 it wouldn't hurt to add 2 1/2 inches to my height. Believe me heels are addicting. No wonder a few of my diva friends back in Frisco own at least 2 pairs. Now, I have two pairs-the basic black and the metallic gold for special crazy occasions. In fact, I'm debating whether to get another one inblack python. I just need to sell my organs to get the covetable pair. Or perhaps I should upgrade and get something higher like the 110cm Rad Hourani or that sleek Gareth Pugh. Damn if only money grows on trees then our lives would have been much...much better! Agree?

2. COMBAT BOOTS
I still remember the day when I got my very first Rick Owens combat boots. Believe me there's never enough room for some butch combat boots. Opt for something distressed and worn out looking to bring out the man in you!

3. ARTISANAL BOOTS
Until now I still regret selling my Capre Diems to one of those fashion nerds who I met through the interwebs. Staring at a few pairs online made me realize that it's about time to get on with my life and cop one of those highly covetable artisanal boots. Frankly I really don't mind blowing off my lifetime savings and living off one cup-of-noodle a day for the rest of my life. On a serious note I think these novelty shoes are worth its hefty price tag! I mean look at them!

4. SNEAKER FREAKER
It's all about chunky rubber shoes. The chunkier the better. Believe once you've tried on a pair or Rick Owens sneaker you will understand what I'm talking about.

5. JEEPERS CREEPERS
The creeper craze is sweeping fashiondom faster than a speeding bullet. If you haven't jumped on it yet then here are some alternatives that will absolutely set you apart from all the emo-goth-punk wannabes.

Thierry Mugler x Underground






If you have a pretty tight budget this season then try a pair of Underground or TUK Creepers. They're pretty cheap and quite rad in my opinion! Saw tons of fashionistas sporting them when I was tramping around Europa!

6. STATEMENT SHOES
If there's ONLY one pair of shoes I'm buying this season then it has to be Juun.J's amazing pair of exaggerated soled platforms. Brilliant idea!
