Pumps & Pleats: Fantastic finds at Enzyme

Classically chic looks are always in style but sometimes it’s fun to be a bit trendy.

Enzyme Shoelab on Kings Highway boasts of-the-moment styles in boots, ballerina flats, pumps and sandals.

It seems this fall is going to be all about hardware. In fact, gold, silver and charcoal studs adorn many of the shoes and handbags on display at the boutique.

A “Pumps & Pleats” favorite had to be a pair of black motorcycle boots with gold studded straps wrapped around the ankle. The boots are so delish that I nearly forgot about the $220 price tag. Almost.

Several of the satchels, totes and clutches are covered in similar stud hardware and, in some cases, decked out with extra zippers, buckles and snaps.

Many of the bags are designed by Big Buddha, an affordable yet super trendy handbag line which prices many of its pieces around $80. Faux leather stands in for the real thing on most of the purses, but who cares? The bags feel super soft and you’ll never need to worry about damage from rain or snowstorms.

If hardware is not your thing, Enzyme carries other styles that are perfectly on trend.

Take a pair of peep-toe pumps by love-her-hate-her-can’t-stand-her starlet Paris Hilton. The $98 pumps’ platform bed is accessorized with a massive black satin bow. Seemingly in an ode to Christian Louboutin’s famous flaming red soles, Hilton’s heels boast a soft pink sole. How sweet!

For a classic style with a fresh edge, check out Jeffrey Campbell’s stiletto pumps in electric blue ($108). These babies give new meaning to Elvis’ famous song lyric, “Don’t you step on my blue suede shoes.”

Thank you. Thank you very much.
