Aside from the joy of doubling our shoe selection without sacrificing closet space, Freda Salvaldor, the debut shoe line from Cristina Palomo Nelson and Megan Papay featuring convertible styles, is giving us major indecision. What if we’re out to dinner, sporting the snow leopard pony hair saddle shoe, when all of a sudden the waitstaff dims the lights for a more romantic, late night setting? Is it time to unsnap the espresso removable saddle? Or maybe the oxford is still appropriate. Or maybe it’s time to slip into the black T-strap loafers… Considering Papay’s background styling for Calvin Klein and Nelson’s background in shoemaking (the craft is a tradtion in her family), every shoe is bound to be a winner for any occasion. If you have no need for such sporadic outfit changes, the kicks are covetable simply for their rugged, yet restrained style. Pick them up at the end of August at Saks Fifth Avenue, Anthropologie and Shopbop.com.
