Arch Nemesis 5

As we all know, Jeffrey Campbell has some interesting opinions on what parts of a shoe are and aren’t important. While you and I might believe that the basic shape of a shoe doesn’t need to be improved upon, Jeffrey Campbell is all about finding new ways to deconstruct the shoe for minimum wearability.

So, we’ve already conquered the heel and the toe bed. What more can be removed from a shoe to create a look that’s uniquely Jeffrey Campbell?

Arch support is for sad women in sweat pants and faded Tweety Bird shirts, not for fashionistas. If your arches can’t support themselves, what good are they? How hard is it for your arches to stay stable in heels without the aid of an insole? Do you have chubby arches? Then keep your insoles – these shoes are for slim, appealing arches. You can take you tarches (when your arches are so fat they blend into your toes) to Dr. Scholl’s, because we don’t want any aesthetically offensive arches here.

And lest you think that the archless shoe might be limited to a single style, an individual stroke of genius on the part of the Jeffrey Campbell design team, rest assured that they were so pleased with their creation that they designed several shoes with the same lack of arch  support. Y’know, because it’s so versatile.

Just what the spectator wedge was missing: gaping holes where one would expect to find vital structural support. How whimsical! How witty! How chic!

It’s times like these when I wonder if Jeffrey Campbell is secretly being paid by podiatrists to wreak havoc on the innocent feet of gullible fashionistas. I’m not saying he is, but I’m not saying the idea is beyond reason either.

Jeffrey Campbell Skyroom Wedges – $189.95

Jeffrey Campbell Benched Cut Out Platforms – $187

This was supposed to go up last Friday to wrap up Jeffrey Campbell week, but instead I was distracted by shiny objects, adorable children, and bad monster movies.

    The device also doubles as a external battery with a capacity of 4,640mAh for charging your iPhone or iPad on the go—just BYO charging cable. That’s nice, but the most appealing thing about the MobileLite Wireless G2 is its price, currently $31 on Kingston’s website.

    Gucci developed an organic tanning technique and in 2013, the company began using it to produce special-order, bamboo-handled bags. Louis Vuitton’s Gaia Monogram Cerise handbags now use vegetable-tanned leather.
