Item of the Day

SW1 barefoot monkey shoeWalking on air, we’ve all heard the expression before. Yet it seems like some outrageous non-attainable phenomenon, plus when you imagine yourself walking on air you usually envision it happening barefoot and not while rocking 6-inch wedges, right?

Well, we’re about to prove all of you non-believers wrong.  Check out SW1’s latest design appropriately named “barefoot sandal,” which is designed carefully so that the foot is supported by the heel and toe, resulting in a sole-less (but certainly not soulless), and surprising comfortable shoe.

Bananas, no? Sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves…it must have been that golden monkey perched perfectly below our floating arch that spoke.

If you’re not already familiar with SW1, then we’re about to open your eyes to an incredible new drool-worthy line.  It’s the brainchild of talented footwear veteran Stuart Weitzman, who teamed with creative director Alvaro Gonzalez, former design director of Jimmy Choo.  With such impressive shoe gurus behind it, it’s not surprising the end result is an exquisite one-of-a-kind design, that’s actually wearable.

We like to call this footwear heaven, a place where you can “walk on air” in style.
