A new release from Prada, an extreme muli-colored saddle wingtip shoe, is from the 2012 spring/summer season collection. This striking brogue does exactly what its suppose to do: MAKE A STATEMENT. In my opinion it doesn't quite top the brogues from last season, but this shoe definitely is a conversation piece. Prada put a twist on the popular wingtip brogue model shoe for its 2012 spring/summer season. This shoe is also available in a more simplistic style in all black patent leather. Additionally, this dress shoe can also be viewed as a sneaker with its clete-like bottom resembling a running shoe. This wingtip brogue sneaker has a Japanese retail price of ¥81,900 JPY (approximately $1,015 USD), however I found it at Saks Fifth Avenue for $650.00.
What do you think of this shoe? Sleek fashion for partying around town or just high fashion for a circus clown?
I reported 2 weeks ago in my Male Street Style: Mercedes Benz Fashion Week post that Elle Magazine's Senior Accessories editor Kyle Anderson was photo'd in this shoe also styled in a Givenchy leather and fur coat,Versace leather studded pants, Dolce & Gabbana bag, Lauren Urstadt gloves and Lanvin sunglasses.
