I think I'm under the influence of my friend Amber, who is a shoe fiend (and I mean that in the best possible way, Amber!). I came across this new line, a branch of Cole Haan, Cole, Rood & Haan via the Oh, Joy! blog.
I love all of these shoes. I think there is something a little rock 'n' roll about them. A little Flying Burrito Bros. A little Gram Parsons (that's him, above, for those of you who don't know, in the pink pants, and above again in the white Nudie suit with the red cross...I think he was under the influence of his friend Keith Richards at the time, style-wise, and er, uh, otherwise. He's my dead rock star crush).
Check out Cole, Rood, & Haan's site. It's beautiful- gorgeous photography & styling- and be prepared to buy shoes.
