Firenze: Le Scarpe (shoes)

One of my favorite things to do in Italy, and especially in Firenze, is to look at shoes. Shoe design is an art form, and one is able to see some of the most creative, unusual, beautiful, crazy and expensive shoes here in Florence. The most interesting ones are usually on people's feet, but it's not easy to get photos of them. So I resort to window shopping. Here are a few examples of what I've been seeing this year: (be sure to click on the images to get a closer view!)
 
Louis Vuitton, 1240 euros
Fendi, 1500 euros
Ugh! These look heavy!
Pucci, 1990 euros
the "slave" design
Leopard designs are "in" this fall.
Dolce & Gabbana, 695 euros
Sergio Rossi, 590 euros
Snappy!
 

A Ferragamo creation: can you find the 950 euro shoe?
And for some diversity, here's a few displays of handbags and jewelry
