Milan Shoe of the Day 9/20/12: Prada

Miuccia Prada knows how to turn heads. Though the stenciled separates, plush coats and graphic eyewear couldn’t be missed, geisha platforms and sandals worn with metallic leather socks were a major conversation starter at Prada’s spring show. The standout sandal leaped into the future with a silver architectural platform and strong chunky heel, while the hot-pink leather sock and tailored satin bows provided the mandatory Prada quirk. Whether this runway style will translate to the real world is yet to be determined, but with the designer’s record it certainly stands a chance.
