Fabulous Shoes

Posted in High Fashion by Piper Hanriot on May 14, 2012

In my quest to ensure that my blogs different and varied, this week I am featuring some of my favourite shoe and boot designers in SL.  Women love shoes and boots both in RL and in SL it’s no different and in SL shoes and boots have come a long way in the past 4 years.

After routing through my inventory, I’m going to show you a few of my favourites and also a couple of recent purchases from other exciting shoe designers.

Firstly we have one of my favourite shoe designers in SL Claire Messenger of N-Core shoes.  I love all her shoes but one of my favourite pairs are called Soul Xtremeheel II.  All SL women know that your avatar’s feet are not particularly pretty.  N-Core design shoes that come with a hud, which you wear when you first put them on.  The shoes themselves come with pretty, more realistic looking feet and toes.  Once wearing the hud you can match the skin tone of your feet to the skin you are wearing.  With these particular fabulous shoes you can also wear them with or without the jewelled chain, as I am modelling.  You can change the colour of the jewels, inner soul, outer sole, colour of the buckle and heel tip and you can also wear your shoes with or without the gorgeous toe ring of which you can also change the colour.

Now for a pair of new release shoes by an Italian designer, Larisa Tylman of Sim-I-Lar shoes.  This designer’s shoes and boots landed in SL and have rocketed, being one of the most popular.  They also contain a hud so you can match your skin tone.  However, a word of advice, you will need to find out what the RGB numbers of your skin are, so you can match your skin tone.  There is a help button on the hud, so if you get stuck, just click on this and it will give you a note with instructions.  I simply love Larisa’s fatpacks, which have shoes in all the colours of the rainbow, perfect for those of you who like to match your shoe colour to your outfit or if you just love a splash of vibrant colour.

Next, a pair of my favourite boots, Bax Prestige boots by Bax Cohen.  These boots are simply amazing.  Once you put them on you can touch them and a menu will appear on your screen.  It is very straight forward and easy to follow.  You can change the size of the boot to fit your feet, the colour, outer sole colour, zipper, toe cap and heel tip colours.  They mould to your feet and legs like a dream and can be worn with pretty much anything and they come in a variety of gorgeous colours.  Bax also has a wonderful ankle boot range as well, which are just as fabulous.

And now for a pair of beautiful decorated Sophie’s Pearls shoes by Static Melody at Aurora.  These shoes are absolutely stunning and would be perfect for a wedding.  These shoes come with two huds, one for skin tone and the other for nail colour.  Adorned with elegant pearls, these shoes give the appearance of glass just like the ones worn by Cinderella, so be careful ladies you don’t lose a shoe on your way home from the ball.

Finally a pair of ankle boots by a lady is more well-known for her beautiful jewellery, the newly released Desiree boots by Chrissy Ambrose at Virtual Impressions.  In a choice of colours, once you put these boots on you can click on them for a menu to adjust their size to fit your feet to perfection.

That is all for this blog, however I am tempted to do another chapter in SL shoes and boots in the future, so watch this space.  Until next time, happy shopping and may your feet be just as gorgeous as you are.
