Designer Nicole Miller Answers FN’s 3 Questions

What’s in the power of a heel? A lot, for designer Nicole Miller, who said she feels more powerful in a high heel than in flats. But sneakers definitely make the cut in her closet, too.

For her resort ’16 collection, Miller is showing a variety of block-heel sandals in bold colors, from cobalt to neon yellow to pink. Tribal details are also an important touch, as well as animal and exotic prints.

Here, Miller talks shoes and more shoes for the FN3.

1. How many pairs do you personally own?

“About 70 or 80 right now, between sneakers, boots and shoes. My favorite brands at the moment are Freda Salvador and Vic Matie.”

2. Heels or flats?

“Heels. I just feel dumpy in flats other than sneakers or moccasins. Heels give you power!”

3. If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be?

“Definitely not a pump or a flat. I would probably be a platform open-toe sandal with hardware.”
