UPDATE - 4/23/14

The full collection is now available online, and we're particularly smitten with the collectible-status-worthy Finn and resort-ready Lola in that amazing orange floral print.

The Sophia Webster x J. Crew collaboration hit stores today (online this Wednesday), and YES PLEASE, we're fans. Not surprising but exciting nonetheless.

The British shoe designer created 13 pieces for the collection, re-imagining some of her most iconic styles and beloved features using patterns and color combos that align with J. Crew's spring things. Helloooooo mish-mash prints and pops of wacky (for <̶ ̶$̶3̶0̶0̶! ...just kidding). We like.

Hiya friends! We're taking Bootleg Airstream out to Austin Psych Fest for some much-needed spring sillies and Vitamin D next month, May 2-4. If you're one of the lucky guys and gals headed to this year's event, be sure to stop in for a hello and, of course, a little shoe magic.

The trailer will be fully stocked with all kinds of truly wondrous styles, including these rare beauties from cult favorite LD Tuttle, and even a few of these rare designer samples. We'll be rockin' all weekend.

Can't make it? Never fear - you can shop the Airstream's current styles (and even some archived pairs!) anytime online right from our Bootleg Market closet. :)

March Madness Makeovers - Sexy Search Engines, Oh My!

by Sarah Ellison Lewis in


This crazy thing happened when we started rearing our little baby search engine out of beta ... it became a dream come true.

What in the world might that mean? Well, it's pretty entertaining to search on our site. Like when you enter GOLD, all these beautiful editorialized gold ideas - that link to actual shoes, many for sale! - fill the screen.

The same thing happens when you begin typing a person's name, or material. Like ALLISON, or LEATHER, or your favorite brand, like LOUboutin...

So go ahead - take that much-needed coffee break and spend a spell having fun looking through our adorable shoe-discovery rabbit holes. Hop hop ... Endless entertainment thanks to our amazing Bootleg Market members who, whether selling or showcasing their shoe collections, describe every pair with love. Now you can jump into their worlds via these funny searches, and even become a part of this exciting new space by sharing your own shoe stories.

Makes Google seem a little tired, eh? We think so...
