The party never ends for festive footwear. By now, over-the-top, fanciful shoes are no longer a trend. They’re a market unto themselves — one that does not seem to be diminishing anytime soon. That’s just fine by Atalanta Weller, the British designer whose tribal-esque, equestrian-inspired wedge is one of the far-fetched shoes pictured here. “It’s a real pleasure to design pieces like that,” says Weller. “I love that in a difficult economy, people still buy into it. They want something that’s new and unique and they’re prepared to invest in it.”
