Stuart Weitzman Pumps, Heels, Evening, Bridal Shoes Reviews: Leather, Suede, Python, Glitter, Lace, Other
Stuart Weitzman Heels
Stuart Weitzman high heels and pumps constitute a sample benchmark department in the ladies' footwear industry: not as costly as Christian Louboutin or Jimmy Choo, these shoes nevertheless possess all the style and quality a dedicated and original designer can guarantee.
Versatility, stress on unique appearance, and impeccable taste – Stuart Weitzman will not take unnecessary risks and flirt with cliché or over-the-top glamor – define the colors, architecture, and contours. The ultra-elegant segment of evening and bridal shoes elevates these properties to the level of fashion artistry.
While leather remains the main building block of the casual-corporate and high-heel dress shoe, already the several softer suede models anticipate the shift made in the special occasion section (evening and bridal). There leather becomes the basis, leaving the top floors for such luxurious fabrics as satin and lace – as well as glitter and Swarowski crystal accents.
Classic slip-on pumps dominate the niche – but SW introduces several architectural variations. Such are the weaved and laced heels, the bow and other toe ornament items, the peep-toe slingbacks (buckle or crystal – essentially a brooch detail), and the thinly strapped sandals. Let's take a closer look:
This segment contain over 30 variations, with a notable range of heel height: the lowest shoes appear almost like flats (¾ inches), while the highest remind of the most expressive stilettos recently revived in couture trends (4 inches).
Animals prints continue to play a part, either in the pattern of large cat predators (tigers, leopards), or reptiles (snakes, crocodiles, and even tortoise). Neutral and earthy tones complete the palette – the several glitter versions standing out as the most festive and dressy of the selection. Choker, Town, Naughty, Platswoon, Poco, Daisy, Blog, Chicpump, Snipper, Homestretch (more a mule than a pump), and other collections.
Stuart Weitzman's most delicately designed shoes, evening and bridal collections generally arrive in the inherently meaningful glossy ivory, silver, platinum and gold, with some occasional black, glitter, and other darker outings.
These pumps and heels keep the feet as open yet as decorated as possible – to let the skin breathe and rest during the festivities, but also to create a complete and consistent, literally head-to-toe, garment for the attending lady.
Midnitelace, Chantelle, Laceswoon, Wicky, Jumbo, Lonestar, Knotted, Reversal, Lightning, Astrology, Gliterswoon, Hiturm, Dome, Gigiritz, and other collections.
