Dare we say, after years of idolizing much of what Richie wears and designs, that we're not totally thrilled with the shoes? Nitro:licious got a first peek at the collection back in March, which will retail between $150-$395 and includes over-the-knee fringed flats, ankle booties flanked by buckles, suede wedge knee-highs with rawhide detailing and mid-length moccasin-boots with toggles (ugh), fur and more leather stitching.
Now, granted, there are some winners: a pair of suede platform booties with a toggle tie at the ankle has a certain YSL-inspired quality, and another pair of lace-covered jazz shoes is incredibly charming. The mukluks, and moccasins, however, seem to stray into early-2000s territory (a dangerous proposition). The overall collection seems comprehensive and wearable for autumn, if not a smidge ho-hum, but then again, this is Richie's second season in footwear.
