Is there anything more appealing than a man who already has the answer to the age old question—why do women need so many shoes? Well, not only does St. Louis native Courtney Crawford understand the importance of a mean shoe game, but he’s been helping ladies like Mariah Carey and Dita Von Teese preserve their sexy in his knock ‘em dead creations.
Those looking to go unnoticed should probably steer clear of anything Courtney has designed. A little bit street and unabashedly sexy, his shoes definitely have an edge. “A Courtney Crawford shoe is for the strong, sophisticated and sexy woman who is interested in wearing a shoe that is a statement of hedonism for the foot,” his site states.
Growing up in an all-female household gave Courtney his insight into the beautifully complex relationship that most women have with their shoes. He also draws inspiration from iconic models from the 80s who were known for being avant garde. Courtney’s resume includes collections designed under his label, as well as developing collections for prominent design houses like Missoni. Andre Leon Talley has even weighed-in on Crawford’s talents, “He embraces the anatomy of a female foot and embellishes it with solid confidence. His shoes always evoke the kind of sensuality that women seek in stilettos.”
We love that Courtney caters to the woman who’s been dubbed as the “racy sophisticate” because that’s exactly what we can imagine ourselves to be as we sashay around in his fur lined boots, pumps with exotic skins and vibrantly hued strappy sandals.
