    The Kate Spade Faylyns. I love the flowers, and I can keep on theme by cackling “POPPIES!!!”

    The skyscraper iis which have somehow managed to slip past my usual distaste for platforms.

    I was once so excited about buying a pair of red shoes that I tripped and fell over a bench on my way out of the store.

    I love the Kate Spade wedges! Her flat sandals are cute too.

    I’d probably actually wear the Cole Haan kitten heels and/or the cute loafers though.

    The two Vivienne Westwood shoes win it for me. In the name of not injuring myself, though, I’d pick the Cole Haans.

    I will totally grab every pair without ankle straps when you’re not looking. Hey! Is that Xabi over there?

    But if I must choose just the one, it must be Ferragamo.

    I’m sick in love with Vivienne Westwood’s Skyscraper II. And would love wearing the Puppies of Hush Basis.

    In all practicality, I would probably buy the center bottom loafers – the Blaise from Ara. But the Vivienne Westwood Regents in the bottom right are singing to me!

    The Marchez Vous have stolen my heart and I might have to sell a kidney. They belong on my feet!

    I like most of them! The kate spades would probably be my favorite – perfect for summer.
    I don’t really care for the hush puppies or the ara ones though.

    It’s funny, before even seeing who made what shoes, the two pairs I would love to have were both by V Westwood. I do believe she is my fashion spirit guide (her and McQueen).

  12. ZaftigWendy June 12, 2012 at 12:54 am #

    None of the above. I would choose a pair of bright red, highly decorated cowboy boots.

    I love the solid red Vivienne Westwoods. And the Blaise by Ara.

  14. marvel June 12, 2012 at 11:08 am #

    I’m with Carole–the Salvatore Ferragamo. Classic.

  15. Friv June 12, 2012 at 12:52 pm #

    Oh Plummy dear, you KNOW I’ve got a pair of red Chies in steady rotation.

  16. Thea June 12, 2012 at 1:05 pm #

    Since I love red shoes more than chocolate, my choice would be “one pair of each”

  17. LeahZ June 12, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    All of them

  18. BrooklynShoeBabe June 12, 2012 at 7:23 pm #

    Oh they are all so divine. But if forced to choose, Simone.

  19. full figured shoes June 13, 2012 at 3:10 am #

    I ll go with the Simone from Marchez Vous

  20. AnthroK8 June 13, 2012 at 8:52 am #

    The last and the first. Outstanding.

  21. S June 13, 2012 at 9:59 am #

    Oh, my Melissa addiction is unsurpassed.

    One of my very dear aunts has always said “Red shoes make happy feet.”
    I took her words to heart, which is why I already have 5 pairs of red shoes (6 of you stretch your definition of red to include dark coral), but if I were going to squeeze one more into my closet, I love the Kate Sade flats because of the black detail in the center of the poppies.
