Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge's second collection for Urban Outfitters just debuted online to piles of both raves and drama, which is pretty much par for the course on the Internet. But Urban sure seems to be a fan of the 17-year-old and her shoes. This collection has tall buckle boots that are suede and leather and $148. The two-tone cream and brown lace-up wedge boots with the perforated toe decoration are $128 and provisionally the best-looking, but the jury will remain out until it gets to see the cone-heeled, bow-tie booties more closely. On her blog, Aldridge also has pictures of those peep-toe booties with large bow ties in pink and black. They look suede, but they aren't up on Urban's site yet.
