Manolo Blahnik Alligator Skin Boots- the most expensive shoes of 2008.

This year's most expensive shoe, or boot I should say, can be yours for £9,430 or $14,000. They are alligator skin Manolo Blahniks. They are available at Manolo Blahnik's West 54th Street boutique in New York. (For these prices, I would want the boots to come with the remains of the animal so i could make myself a matching bag!)

The second most expensive shoe or boot of 2008 is the Louis Vuitton Grey Animal Skin Ankle Boots with Buckle, coming in a close second at a retail price of £7,945 or $11,842. (also, if you bought these shoes in July, they would have cost you a mere £5, 923 but today, with all the credit crunch business, you would pay the above price.....ouch!)

John Galliano Spring 2009 Shoe Collection

John Galliano is known for his wacky style sense and this is no exception to this collection. Its wild and just fabulous.

The height of this collection, for me, is definately the futuristic platform heel which its unique and just brilliant. I can't wait for these to be in the stores.

Christian Louboutin for Philip Lim Spring /Summer 2009

Christian Louboutin designs, designed for Philip Lim Spring /Summer 2009 Shoe Collection. I like the sandals. Perfect for summer but am not too crazy about the rosettes and the whole gladiator look is so last summer.

These silver and gold heels look quite nice and the pink snakeskin ones below are okay although they would not be my first choice. Am not being funny but models have really dodgey legs and feet. The legs in the pink shoes look like they have been bruised and are in need of some serious TLC.

Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2009

The Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2009 Shoe Collection is definately hot!!!! I am absolutely loving the silver straps with the braided look and the cherub-esque female form heel which I think is the best detail on these shoes. My absolute favourite is the white shoe above which is unique and reminds me of the Winter 2008 collection. I think that this spring/summer we will see alot of interesting heels out there.
