It’s that time of year when journalists from all over glance back at the year that was, and look forward to what the next year will bring. And this end-of-December is no different. So here’s a look at what one reporter from the Stevens Point Journal had to say on the status of shoes in 2008:
2007 prediction: Pointy-toed stilettos would walk on out the door.
2007 reality: True. Ballet flats and wedges kicked other shoes to the curb as women realized that pain wasn’t a prerequisite for high style.
2008 prediction: Stephanie Solomon, Bloomingdale’s fashion director, says flats won’t fade, but, by next winter she expects women back in their triangular toes and high heels. "If you look at some of the big names, they’re showing pointed again," Solomon says. "Changes take longer in footwear. When trends are comfortable they last. The ballet flat — everyone likes it."
