Jeffrey Campbell: Would You, Could You?

If anybody has mastered the perfect Summer shoe it is Jeffery Campbell. With bold designs and inspiring shapes, I can’t even glance at his collection without wiping the drool from my chin. While compiling my Summer must-haves list, I stumbled upon these bold little ditties:

A bit loud and extremely eye catching, I think these Jeffrey Campbell Salvatore Wedges are perfect for adding color to the gray scaled mundanity of everyday life. These wedges are a wonderful homage to honor the late great Italian designer Salvatore Ferragamo (specifically his 1937 wedges, worn by Carmen Miranda, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, and Audrey Hepburn), whose lovely designs can be seen here. With each step you take it’s like you’re punching the day in the face with a rainbow. Available in nude and silver, these wedges are so bright and lovely, it is as if they were dyed using the blood of a unicorn. I love them, I’d wear them. Would you?

But even if you would, that doesn’t always mean you could (e.g. me running a marathon or Jennifer Garner making a good movie). This concept is also perfectly illustrated by these interestingly gorgeous Jeffrey Campbell Benched Cut Out Platforms:

Jeffrey Campbell really wins the prize for beautiful originality with these. To me they look like a pair of Picasso constructed high end rocking horses that you wear on your tootsies, but in the best way! There’s no doubt that these shoes are interesting and exciting…but are they wearable? Arch support is nearly entirely eliminated, and I fear the worst when it comes to issues of rubbing your soles the wrong way. Then again…the beautiful earth tones, the sleek vintage style with an overdose of originality, they seem like they would go with anything and everything and can’t help but want them! I just don’t know if I could actually wear them. Could you?
