Paris Runway Trend: Green Lights

Designers opted for shots of jade, loden and teal to brighten up fall footwear. Valentino worked a silk evening sandal to fine effect in a sleek turquoise. Hues reminiscent of worn-in military uniforms were abundant, whether in zip-around calf boots at Revillon or lace-up wedge booties at Kenzo. Stella McCartney’s ladylike cap-toe pumps infused fresh color into her gender-bending collection. And deep emerald pumps with lace overlay at Louis Vuitton and John Galliano’s patent full-leg corset pompon versions were the latest additions to this growing trend.
