While these influences ring true in the decorative elements of the shoes, there is a glamorous quality to each that is imparted by modern architectural styles as well. Deep platforms add new height to ankle boots and strappy sandals, some with sleek, polished exteriors, bisected by strips of bonded black leather.

We’re crazy about the fusion of art and fashion, and few in the footwear world are doing it better right now than Chrissie Morris.
