Is it bad to say that I didn't really like going to Toronto Fashion Week in the past? Yeah, it probably is. The confusion, the time suck & the many thoughts of “how does it apply to my shoe blog?” would twirl inside my brain. Suffice to say, I've changed my tune ever so slightly 😉 Because you've got to see these Toronto shoes!
I mean, no, it's not NYFW, but considering how much lower on the fashion-o-meter (and no, that not a world) Toronto is, the show, the set-up & organization has been pretty stellar. I really got to hand it to the PR companies, volunteers & many people involved that make it all happen. So as the thankful recipient of all WMCFW going-ons, I say thank you!
But back to street style shoes. So many fun styles were spotted, paired with anything from sombre attire to the downright ridiculous. Although, yes, “ridiculous” fits so well with fashion week that it's become a world I use to rather ornately describe creativity. In a good way, really! Again, on Day 3 outside the Spring 2016 shows were loads of sneakers (wore my own galactic gold Michael Kors for comfort & slight dose of crazy) & strappy heels continued to dominate. Many low ankled go-go dancer 60s-inspired boots started finding their way outside the tents of WMCFW as well. And proof that the men can even outshine their female shoe wearers are in the pics below. Oh & sparkle. Lots of glitter people; lots of glitter.
Enjoy. And of course, you must tell me which shoes you'll like to steal off these fashionista's feet. Major street style moments, below…
