It is often hard for me to find contemporary shoes that make me go completely ga-ga. Vintage shoes, especially ones from 1940s, are a whole other story. But the problem is that most early to mid 20th century shoes are small and narrow so it is rare to find that perfect fit. And even though the quality of the craftmanship was far superior compared to your average shoe today, I still wear my vintage shoes with caution, especially during winter.
But there is one contemporary shoe designer that stands apart from the rest for me and that is Minna Parikka. She is, hands down, my favorite Finnish designer. Her shoes are to die for; cute, elegant, feminine, fun, timeless. Here are just a few of my favorites from the newest Parikka collection.
