Our favorite shoe style from the Spring 09 shows, as perfectly demonstrated by Phillip Lim and Christian Louboutin, is the ruffle front heel. We have become so enchanted by this style that we set about finding a similar look in the meantime. Prada, of course, paved the way with ruffled handbags and shoes this Fall 08. The small but lovely Loeffler Randall was thinking a step ahead of the curve with pleat-like ruffles on many of their shoes this season. Jeffrey Campbell, always right on trend, also put out some ruffle inspired footwear. Despite these more than adequate examples, we have to admit, we still can't wait for the real thing.
