Sperry Top-Sider x Jeffrey Authentic Original Covered Pump in embossed python
What: Sperry Top-Sider x Jeffrey Authentic Original Covered Pump in embossed python

Why it's hot: Let me count the ways. Let's start with its star-making turn in the September issue of Lucky magazine's Fall Shoe Guide. Then, let's talk about the effortless collaboration between preppy staple label Sperry Top-Sider and the exquisitely curated Jeffrey store of New York and Atlanta fame. Finally, what about that just-odd-enough-to-be-fabulous combination of laid back boat shoe and uptown python-embossed leather pump? I'm in love with this shoe, and as soon as the fashionista masses make it to page 234 of their September Lucky, it's going to sell out. Mark my words.

What to wear it with: Spring's ladylike style will be bleeding over right into Fall, and nowhere is that more evident than in the return of the high-heeled loafer. A little more refined than in its mid-'90s heyday, the heeled loafer is going to be one of the it shoes for Fall. Pair this Sperry Top-Sider x Jeffrey version with all of your pencil skirts and wasp-waisted dresses.

But, don't stop there. The substantial heel -- a bit of an anomaly amongst its Fall 2011 loafer brethren -- means that this high heel loafer will also do well anchoring a pair of wide-leg trousers, or even your favorite wide-leg jeans. Plus, the chunky heel makes this reptile-embossed shoe a perfect pump for your workday -- classic, refined and oh-so-walkable.

Python not quite wild enough for you? This special collaboration shoe is also available in a range of Fall-perfect bright suede shades -- from Green to Magenta -- as well as Black Patent.
