Posted Jul 24, 2009 by gravitypope in repetto, acne, fall 2009, marc by marc jacobs, georgina goodman

This is one the best times of the year. Sale prices get slashed and all of the new and amazing product for fall 2009 starts to come in as well. We've already uploaded some great new men's shoes and new women's shoes at gravitypope. But some of the highly anticipated brands are yet to come in and today we wanted to do a little feature on some of the shoes we at gravitypope just can't wait to receive.

For men, this has to be the Quoddy moccasins, hand made in Maine since 1909. These are exceptional in quality, craftsmanship and style and all are signed by the craftsman who made them as well. Want to know when they arrive? Stay informed by signing onto the gravitypope newsletter for Quoddy and all of our new fall collections will start to come in. Marc by Marc Jacobs is always highly anticipated; their fall winter 09 collection has some great styles that Fashion Magazine noted in their most recent August 2009 issue. The blue nubuck peep toe with geometric heel is a guaranteed show stopper while the crocodile printed loafer offers an academic feel and would look amazing on any prof or student as they stroll across quad.

Platforms are definitely making their mark this season (have you seen T & F Slack?) and the Acne atacombe is the modern version for fall 2009. Acne has been a gravitypope favorite for years and with such attention to detail, the Swedish label/design studio is garnering well deserved attention. More Acne clothing and Acne footwear can be found at with some great spring summer collections recently marked down.

Booties are extremely popular this year with many designers, but a beautiful bootie is yet to come from Gerogina Goodman. Always a great choice when looking for a heel that will stand out, Georgina Goodman's patent toe cap bootie is feminine and stunning with a beautiful floral print by Erdem Moralioglu. Many on staff are dying to see this one in person.

Repetto has always had a name when it comes to ballet flats, but the recent fervor of Kate Moss wearing the jackson (in honour of the late and great Micheal Jackson) has caused a complete sell through in Europe. Don't worry, the gravitypope order is coming and should be here soon. If you want to know when, sign onto the gravitypope newsletter or check back here on the gravitypope shoe blog and you'll be one of the first to know when it arrives.

The oldest known sandal, and oldest know footwear, was discovered in Fort Rock Cave in Oregon (Robbins, William G. (2005). Oregon: This Storied Land. Oregon Historical Society Press). Woven from sagebrush bark, it was dated to at least 10 000 B.C. Since then the sandal has taken on many variations but has always been a mainstay during summers warmest days.

Generally made from PVC, rubber or latex, jelly shoes (or jellies) came to be during WWII when there was a leather shortage in Europe. Hugely popular in the 80's, the jelly shoe has become one of the seasons more popular trends and is probably best represented by the gravitypope favorite, the jelly gladiator sandal by Givenchy in a perfect matte black.
