Weekend in review—shoes and news

After a long and rainy weekend in Portland it’s nice to come back and start the week off right. Greeted with a bit of sunshine, and a ton of great shoe news to report it on, we can already tell it’s going to be a good week. Here’s what happened over the weekend:

  • Taking the next step: Not one for summer? Already excited for fall? If so, check out the New York Post’s top 50 shoes for fall 2007.
  • Designer shoes without the pain: Every woman’s dream is to wear a fashionable heel without the suffering. We know as well as anyone this is nearly an impossible feat. But am New York reports on some designer shoes styles that are just as comfortable as they are beautiful. Worth mentioning is Julie Gordon’s review of Faryl Robin shoes.
  • Designer fakes: The Chicago Tribune reports on the arrest of 10 street vendors and confiscation of more than 2,000 pairs of phony designer shoes. Now Chicago residents will have to pay full price for the real thing.
  • Move over Manolo: There’s a new shoe stud in town, and he goes by the name of Rupert Sanderson. Sanderson’s designing, arguably, the hottest shoes of the moment.

Last, but not least, here’s a little celebrity gossip from the big house, where Paris Hilton is serving a 45-day jail sentence.

  • Paris says she will no longer act stupid: During an interview with Barbara Walters, Hilton proclaimed that she used to act stupid, "but the act is no longer cute."  Additionally, the Hollywood socialite has a new, spiritual outlook on life saying, “Now, I would like to make a difference … God has given me this new chance.”
