  • Shearling is spot-on style for the impending Fall/Winter season.
  • Shearling is soft, super comfortable, and provides ample warmth during winter months.


Funny how neither of those facts make these Reed Krakoff leather and shearling sandals any more acceptable.

Reed Krakoff developed his creative sensibilities at the helm of Ralph Lauren and Coach, and while most of his eponymous F/W 2010 clothing line is desirable — filled with utilitarian cuts and various textures — these sandals certainly are not.

The black leather sandals alone are chic, but the addition of that shearling front is confusing. It’s like the juxtaposition of summer and winter style, and it doesn’t really work for me.

So whilst the editors at NAP claim these Reed Krakoff shearling sandals are the “most glamourous way to wear shearling this season” —

I’ll stick to my Australia Luxe Collectives and Uggs, thank you.
