We’ve been avoiding writing anything about FN Shoe Star, a shoe designer challenge sponsored by Footwear News and Nine West because, well, we’re just that snotty and immature. There is only one Shoe Star and your looking at her. Yeah, that’s right, if there’s one thing I’m cocky about it’s my knowledge of the shoe. Hacks! I tease, I tease. I don’t even know these people, but I do think that the challenge should have been open to other shoe lovers, designers, and FN readers and not just formally trained students of FIT, NY. They should have thrown some untrained designers in; mix it up a bit. You can’t fake talent, after all, the right person(s) would/will get weeded out no matter who they were. Who are you rooting for? Shoedish hasn’t seen enough yet to form any solid opinions, but we’ll be tracking their progress from here on in. Today, we’re featuring a design from Karen, the 21-year old student from Taipei, Taiwan. Good luck Karen!
