Well friends, another weekend has passed and it’s time to start the week off right with some fresh fashion and shoe news. Last week’s review was an exciting one to say the least, but, like most week’s, we can hardly wait to share another weekend worth of news with you:
- Soft soled shoes cause problems—The Washington Post reports that people are becoming victims to escalators and public transit accidents as a result of soft soled shoes. From crocs to flip-flops and other soft soled shoes, the material is no match for the steel teeth of an escalator. More and more, people are reporting having their shoes ripped off and sometimes torn to shreds.
- Five minutes with Gok Wan—That’s what The Independent got with one of the UK’s most influential fashion consultants and author of "How to Look Good Naked," Gok Wan. In the interview Wan answers a series of questions on the state of fashion and what’s to come in the future of fashion.
- New fashion-tainment program on HSN—America’s shoe expert, Meghan Cleary, will have her chance to combine fashion with entertainment in what’s been branded "fashion-tainment." The show, "Shoe Therapy," will appear on the Home Shopping Network and promises to cover the latest in fashion footwear, from stilettos to loafers, kitten heels to wedges and boots to flip-flops.

It was a beautiful weekend here in Portland and we hope our readers around the country—and possibly the world—experienced the same. Last weekend’s shoe and news review was all about hot shoe trends, Cameron Diaz’s handbag conundrum and stolen shoes. This weekend’s wasn’t any less exciting. Here’s what’s news:
- Barneys goes to Seattle—Shopaholics and fashionistas in Seattle, Wash., no longer have to venture to the "Big Apple" for a truly designer shopping experience. Seattle’s fashion elite will strut over to Barneys New York in its new home at Pacific Place.
- Sunglasses are the new handbags; bags are the news shoes—All of us here at Shoeflyer believe that to be a false statement. After all, bags nor sunglasses could ever be more important than shoes. Though we are happy to see that designer shoe manufacturers are jumping into the designer sunglasses arena. Prada and Gucci have been putting out beautiful shades for several years, now Cole Haan jumped the bandwagon, but with more modestly priced designer eye wear.
- Patriotic Shoes—In celebration of the quickly-approaching, 4th of July holiday, one tennis shoe designer has made it easier to be patriotic, starting at your feet. New Balance recently introduced limited-edition Independence Day shoes. The red, white and blue sneakers, adorned with stars & stripes start at $65 and are available at select retailers.
And last, but not least:
- More on Spice Girls—Last week we helped spread the word about the Spice Girls World Tour 2.0. Now one Spice Girl, Posh, is in the limelight once again. Wife of LA’s newest sports icon, Victoria Beckham, threw the first pitch at a Dodger’s game over the weekend. Manolo put it best when he said, "she throws like a girl."
