Solestruck Does Art Basel, One Shoe at a Time

Let the Art Basel Miami Beach games begin! Whether you’ve made the voyage for the arts or for the nightlife, there is so much to see in such a short amount of time. We do Basel right by obeying two simple rules; don’t think you can catch everything (invites overload, anyone?,) and make sure you catch up on your sleep before you leave, because you’re in for a ride…

This year, we’ve teamed up with our favorite shoe pusher, Solestruck, and here are some of the events we definitely won’t miss, and the soles you’ll want to rock. Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the (art) world, right?

Le Baron Does Daytime At Mondrian, South Beach

We definitely don’t want to miss the first ever Le Baron Does Daytime (Poolside at Mondrian Hotel, South Beach) Dec 4th through Dec 8th, every afternoon between 2pm-6pm . Le Baron has outdone themselves this year by inviting the likes of Colette, FriendsWithYouVanity Projects, and many more.

Such a simple yet alluring shape paired with a classic black and white color scheme just screams of concept and intention. Finished with a red lining for a little extra drama.

“Chez André” Karaoke

Andre Saraiva knows how to throw a party: babes, Perrotin, Ullman’s Rock n Roll Karaoke – its vibe is Paris meets London meets NYC meets LA meets Tokyo. Its a debaucherous mess of primitive party people dressed in some of the wildest pieces you’ve seen all year.

The elegant shape of this shoe and the playful addition of a subtle bow makes these a must have for Art Basel parties. The structural gold metal heel is icing on top of the black suede cake.

Basel Castle

Our friends at Overthrow are throwing “Basel Castle” on Dec 7th, at Grand Central Park downtown Miami. Featuring tons of rad musicians, contemporary art, installations and interactive games – mega party vibes you don’t wanna miss.

You can count on this ferocious beauty to keep you ready for anything. She’s a beast sporting that chunky TBA look that we love in a super luxe shiny black leather

Wynwood Walls : Women on the Walls features the work of some of our favorite female artists around the globe. It’s happening now until Dec 8th at 2520 NW 2ND Avenue.

Androgynous loafer style with a little bit of cowboy flash, the two inch heel adds a classy feminine pump.

Hard 2 Leave

We’ll be finishing off Art Basel 2013 with a BANG at “Hard 2 Leave“, the unofficial closing party of the week. Taking place at Miami’s Gentleman’s club VIVID, we’ll need a bad ass pair of shoes to keep up. Leave morality and  all inhibitions at the door…

Sporty chic with super hot mesh peekaboo detailing and a sky high heel will have you looking down on all those wannabes.

Time to head back home, babies!

Just because Art Basel is over, doesn’t mean you need to stop decking yourself out in the snazziest kicks. Pick a comfy pair of shoes that whisper “I had the greatest time at Art Basel 2013!”  for your flight home.  You might be feeling a little bummed and groggy as you pack your bags and hop into a taxi, but remember, all of the madness was definitely worth it, and you can always sleep on the plane.
