Blue Suede Shoes

Fall's Hottest Footwear, Courtesy of Elvis Presley

— July 23, 2009 — Fashion
It was way back in the 50s when Elvis Presley recorded “Blue Suede Shoes” and made it a hit, but the effects are still being felt today in 2009.

One of the biggest fall trends for footwear is exactly that - blue suede shoes. From designers such as Alexander McQueen, to mall outlets like Aldo, blue suede is just about everywhere.

The look is being applied to all types of footwear, from slip on flats to trendy night-out heels or even the must have of the summer, gladiator sandals. From peeptoe pumps in royal blue or thigh high boots in navy, there are dozens of different ways to rock the look.

The bright, royal blue is the best way to get your feet to stand out and give an outfit an extra pop. If anyone calls them purple, set them straight.

These shoes have an interesting look, but caring for suede shoes isn’t as easy. They are prone to showing dirt and scuffing easily, and can be discoloured by water. Maybe not the most practical choice in footwear, especially during the wet weather, but their appeal doesn’t lie in practicality.

It’s best to use a suede eraser (sometimes called a cleaning block) and brush to keep the fabric in its best condition, and the colour as vibrant as ever.

If you’re willing to put in the extra effort to look your best, blue suede shoes are a great addition to your wardrobe. Just make sure to tell passersby not to step on your blue suede shoes.
