There is something about this Trippen style that I find absolutely irresistible. I think it's that they look kind of witchy and yet are so dang funky and cool. I'm really dying to try the new cross-shaped wedge Trippen has created because it's supposed to be such a cushy ride for your feet. This may just be the shoe that winds up on my feet, bad economy or no. (Hey, spending money helps it, I hear--that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
