Ridiculously cool renditions from Sanayi 313 (both photos above)


I’m so down with the Babouche for spring. The style is birthed from a traditional North and West African shoe that dates back centuries. With the thinnest of soles, slightest of frames, and the ease of just a simple slip into- makes it pretty just right for Spring- I’m always in when it comes to exploring minimal, flat footwear options.

as podiatrist’s around the globe count there benjamin’s based on bunion damage control (thanks manolo bb) the fashion crowd seems to be reconsidering the platform. i’ll tell ya… the arch of my foot is begging for a break- aaand with a little help from these lifts new heights are within reach. i know they look kinda wrong- and i’m not saying the pointy pump is long gone, but i think a 70s soaring moment has a time and place, i know most men hate these but, you try an uncushioned, deep dip, toe hammering shoe for two years and counting.
