Spring Trend Watch: Two Toned Ankle Strap Heels

Ahh, Spring. One day you think it's on the doorstep, the next you get six inches of snow. Hey, at least there isn't a snow boot shortage (unless you live in on the east coast). In any case, back to Spring. We're already seeing the spring runway fashions on the streets when weather permits. And one of the big trends we're seeing is two-toned ankle strap heels.

The great thing about ankle strap heels is the support, and the wonderful thing about having two colors is, well, more colors! Buying your favorite heels in two tones means you no longer have to buy them in both colors for them to work with both outfits. Make sense? 

Without further ado, we give you some of our favorite two-toned heels for the Spring season.

Alexander Wang

Giorgio Armani


Dolce Vita

Jeffrey Campbell

Manolo Blahnik

Jimmy Choo
(Sometimes they even sneak in a third color!)

Oscar Shoes: Our Picks for 2014's Leading Ladies

This Sunday marks the 86th annual Academy Awards, better known as The Oscars. We can't wait to sit around with our best girlfriends sipping champaign, eating finger foods and critiquing the fashions. At this point, we have no idea what Oscar's leading ladies will be wearing. Only the real insiders are privy to that info. But what we do know is what's on the cutting edge of shoe fashion, and if we had our way, all outfits would start and end with the shoe. So, without further ado, we give you our picks for the 2014 Oscar shoes.

The Nominees and the Shoes We'd Choose

Actress in a Leading Role

Amy Adams, American Hustle

We've loved Amy Adams in former roles like Enchanted and The Muppets, but American Hustle is a different character for her. In it, she is enlisted in a bribery scam where the would-be stripper from New Mexico plays an British upper-class woman. She does a fabulous job playing a dynamic role, which is why we've selected these dynamic, metallic chain-fringe sandals from Gianvito Rossi. 

Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine

A "victim" of a financial scandal involving her former husband, Jasmine (played by Blanchett) finds herself suddenly broke but in denial. She takes a flight, first class no doubt, to her sister's house in San Francisco, still clinging to her expensive rings and high fashion. For her character, we chose this snakeskin pointed toe pump from Alexander McQueen.

Sandra Bullock, Gravity

In a telescope space mission, Sandra Bullock's character plays a scientific engineer who, along with co-star George Clooney, is the victim of a terrible circumstance. After debris destroys their space shuttle, we find the two floating in space in a dazzling spectacle of filmography. One of the critiques of the film is that Bullock's hair doesn't free float as it really would in space, and for that reason we've selected these gravity-defying six-inch platform pump from Christian Louboutin.

Judi Dench, Philomena

Based on a true story, Philomena is about an elderly Irish woman, played by Dame Judi Dench, searching for the son she gave up for adoption as a teen. She plays a common middle class woman with former ties to the convent and a very utilitarian wardrobe. That's why we've chosen this staple black low-heel pump from Christian Louboutin. 

Judi Dench Oscar Shoes

Meryl Streep, August: Osage County

Among a star-studded cast, Meryl Streep plays the matriarch of a family who has reconvened in Oklahoma to pay respects to the patriarch of the family, who died in an apparent suicide. Quarrels and revelations come into play in the dark comedy. For her nomination, we chose these snake-inspired numbers from Giuseppe Zanotti.

What's Happening at Clickless?

It feels too late to even say so, but Happy New Year. 2013 was a whirlwind for us, with television appearances, fashion week, and other business opportunities. Well, if 2013 was great, 2014 is going to be a doozy. 

So far this year, we've already launched our brand new website (hint: you're looking at it), featuring an easier, more instinctive checkout process. We've also released brand new packaging for our heel protectors and sole pads. 

We will also be attending FN Platform this week in Las Vegas. FN Platform is an international footwear event from Magic Market Week and Footwear News. We hope to connect with 1,600 other footwear labels to help shape the future of the industry. 

Needless to say, we've been a bit busy. But we are looking forward to getting back to regularly posting here on our shoe fashion blog and keeping you posted on social media. 

Wishing you the best as 2014 continues...
