Looking up, at the Aldo presentation.
Now look down at your slushy feet.
Spring, believe it or not is almost here.  As we struggle with boots, coats and all the wonderful winter accoutrements, I comfort myself with the thought that spring is right around the corner, maybe.  At least that's what the groundhog said.
Even before snow hit the ground I visited the Aldo group's spring/summer 2014 preview, where I squealed with delight at the thought of open-toed shoes.

First up: this oh so wonderful men's sneaker for the Aldo division.  I was having a chat with one of the lovely PR ladies about this shoe.  It went something like this: "Can I please, please please have this in my size?!?!"  She smiled politely and said she would make a note of it.

Ok in the more "realistic item to be desired" catagory, may I point to this insanely rad, Dr. Martens sandal. Yes please size 7US/4UK and thank you very much.  Me. You. At Little Burgundy. March. Can't wait.

There have been predictions that the must-have kicks of 2014 will be all about Vans.  Little Burgundy will also be carrying this Vans Authentic X ASPCA in an all-over kitty cat print.  Support your furry friends!

Call It Spring's deck shoe meets sneaker. Rad or cray? Kinda making me think of the Prada wingtip/sneaker hybrid from a few seasons back.  Or more recently this derby/sneaker.  There is a lot of love for kicks in the air.

This year's Aldo Rise designer collab was with UK based designer Ostwald Helgason.  The design duo are lovers of print and tactile fabrics, which is nicely expressed in their latest for Aldo.  See those handbags in the background?  This will be the first time that Aldo Rise will be producing arm candy.  Get into spring already!
