80%20‘s newest collection of chic, playful kicks includes three looks that utilize denim (to take the denim-on-denim look one step futher, or dress up just about any warm weather outfit), and we’re obsessed! Their video lookbook for spring 2011 features the band Yacht’s latest single “Psychic City”, and will have you craving for summer in the city before you even get 10 seconds in.
Below are three looks from this collection we can’t live without. From top to bottom: the Georgie (editor’s note: our personal favorite!), an open toe cuffed shoe with a basket weave trim and cute, colorful lining ($129); the Flora, an open-toed fabric flower adorned shoe with soft-gathers ($99); and the Dawn, a leather & denim cork wedge open toe shoe with tassel details.
80%20 shoes are available at the 80%20 Website, Mod Cloth, Asos, Urban Outfitters, Endless, and at various locations in multiple countries. For a full listing of retail locations, click here.
