Futuristic Footwear: Prada Spring 2013

Good morning Moonchildren!

I recently stumbled upon Prada’s Spring 2013 futuristic shoes…and I must say, I’m in LOVE! The collection features geisha-inspired platforms, metallic socks, flowers, pink satin and bows. They are so weird in the best way possible. Miuccia Prada is renowned for her cerebral design aesthetic and forward thinking…and these shoes definitely fit the bill.  I can’t get enough of the high platforms with crazy pearl-like embellishments! I know they sound crazy, but I would also try rocking the massive thong “flatforms” (inspired by the Japanese split-toe style “tabi boots”)  – paired with those leather socks, of course.  You never know, by Spring everyone might be wanting to wear socks with thong sandals.

Is this the future of footwear?
