In the coming months you will undoubtedly see more modestly priced shoes with this same look.

    So what… prada has exclusive use of the dip-dye technique now?

    No, but the Manolo wanted to point out how trends in the fashion industry move. In the sort of trickle down fashion, from the top designers, to the second level, and eventually down to Payless and Nine West.

    Much more interesting are the trends which come from the street and move upward.

    And also which version will prevail: the Prada dark-toe-to-light heel, or the Weitzman light-toe-to-dark-heel.

    I think I like Prada better.

    Too late: Nine West already copied the Prada sfumato wide-strap sandals (without the sfumato, unfortunately, but the silhouette is similar). They’re on sale.

    The Pradas are much lovelier. It’s the gently convex curve of the heel that makes the shoe.

    I’ve seen the ice cream cone heel knocked off for $25 at Army and Navy in Canada. Things don’t so much trickle down as plummet! And as for these, not for the first or last time, I like the cheaper shoe better, although one must recognize that for those of long footitude, the Prada is probably more flattering.

    You shall see this trend in the clothing department also. The runway was teeming with the ombre look.
