Shoe of the Day | By Malene Birger Dali Tall Gladiator Sandal

Gladiators are taking over the fashion world this season and tall styles are really leading the pack for spring. We couldn't continue highlighting this great shoe trend without showing you this extraordinary By Malene Birger Dali Tall Gladiator Sandal. Featuring a stunning calfskin leather lace-up shaft, this knee-high strappy sandals boasts a thong sandal silhouette, cutout at the heel, exposed asymmetrical back zipper closure, metal accents on the laces, and a 0.7" heel. We love the corseted look of this Gladiator sandal, it is a refreshing departure to the norm we're seeing and these straps make the legs look incredibly flattering and sexy.

I can't help but be in love, what do you ladies think?

Shoe of the Day | Teva Original Universal Sport Sandal

Today's Shoeography Shoe of the day is a bit more personal to me, mainly because it was a DIY project. While attending an event to preview the Spring 2014 Original Collection by Teva, we had the pleasure of creating awesome DIY designs. All attendees were given a pair of Teva Original Universal Sport Sandal and told to make it our own. This amazing sport sandal was the world’s first Sport Sandal and was created 30 years ago....still standing very strong today. The original Universal features Teva's traditional nylon webbing, a contoured EVA topsole, multiple points of adjustments for a comfortable fit on your foot, and their Durabrasion rubber outsole for great traction.

For my personalization, I decided to make it really pop with a metallic; since silver really stands out against black, that was my go-to color. I decided to keep the wow factor on the footbed with an eye-catching graphic design, added some stars on the outsole for when my foot completely covers the footbed and accent the front strap with small studs.I couldn't ask for a better result and my design was quite popular. This Teva Sandal retails for $40.00, why not get yourself a pair and make it your own. It comes in a variety of colors and goes up to size 11.

Givenchy Tyson Whipstitched High-Top Sneaker

Take me out to the Springtime!  Givenchy has the right idea with their new Tyson Whipstiched High-Top Sneaker.  Boasting an all pristine white upper and heel with bold whipstitch detailing adorning the toe box, tongue, ankle strap and heel this is a commanding shoe in the spirit of the season.  Bright white and the restart of the baseball season take flight here through details here and make for a handsome and ultra cool statement high top.  Available now at
