Paris Shoe of the Day: Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld continues to tread new ground for spring '13.

Leave it to the Kaiser to make a mid-heel the coolest thing running. Season after season, Karl Lagerfeld continues to tap Chanel’s deep roots while at the same time creating inventive, wearable looks in apparel and accessories that promise to keep sales sailing through spring. The latest success was this low platform style with wraparound ankle straps that featured the season's all-important stripes. Only Lagerfeld — with the footwear expertise of longtime collaborator Laurence Dacade — could make luxury feel so current, casual and cool.
