The Internet has been abuzz with news of an unexpected footwear collaboration between mega-retailer Topshop and Louise Goldin, the British designer known for her high-concept, futuristic knits. Deciding to take a foray into footwear for S/S 10, the show-stopping shoes on a high street budget are impossibly glam and tough all at once, an element echoed in Goldin’s recent runway collection. There’s no official release date as of yet, but with the hype these spiked wonders have generated so far, its clear that heavily embellished accessories are still something on which to keep an eye.
