There is certainly no shortage of patterned pumps for the upcoming season. How perfectly plaid are these
As ever, shoes are becoming quite seasonless, such that labeling many of these "autumn" is a misnomer.
For example, the pale pink of this Balenciaga patent and mirrored leather Escarpins bootie feels more springlike in nature. Photo at right via style.com.

Are any of CC's readers not instantly enamored of these Manolo Blahnik striped pumps? The buckle detail and sensible heel height make them unique!
If you are in the market for a serious statement shoe, look no further than this Miu Miu leather pump with sculpted heel and shell detail. CC loves the juxtaposition of dark heft and sculptural, winged lightness here. And the navy/black color scheme is definitely on trend for fall. Photo at left courtesy style.com.
In the same color family, but with even more fanciful construction, is this Chloé leather and crocodile sandal with leaves and rosebud detail. The shielded heel, covering a delicate stiletto, is a true innovation. CC doesn't know whether to (a) encase them in a vitrine for display in the foyer; (b) worship them or (c) wear them??
