Recent fashion weeks in Tokyo, Prague and Lisbon inspired sartorial creativity from head to toe. We trained our lenses on some of the more amusing boot and shoe choices worn by showgoers and city residents. From platform mary janes in cartoon-bright colors to fetish-inspired styles without heels that require a balancing act, footwear often stole the show. There were arty wooden wedges, neon-bright sneakers, eclectic booties and embellishments galore: fuzzy animal faces, chains, faux fruit, floral embroidery and even folded $100 bills. An array of quirky socks and hosiery proved equally captivating.
