As we bid a fond (or not so fond) farewell to the Noughties, I wanted to add my Top Ten most influential shoe / footwear designers and/or style of the decade. Remember when shoes became the new handbag?
The shoes on this list are not necessarily the best but they were all influential for better or worse. My pick for number one most influential? Its a tie between Christian Louboutin, the red sole is more easily identified than the red bullseye... and the 2006 Balenciaga Harness boot, the "shoe" heard round the world that drove and still drives bloggers crazy and launched a thousand knockoffs. I'm looking at you Sam Edelman :)
