Meet Jeffrey Campbell’s newest creation, the Benched, part of their “Woodies” series. I was super geeked this morning when they tweeted about this, and then to find out that Need Supply is selling them….AHmazing! I saw these babies (and tried them on!) on Wednesday when I was at the Transit Shoe Show at the California Market Center, but in a patent leather black + pink/cream combo…think Chanel. The cute JC staff were debating over if they liked the Benched or the Busstop style better, both feature this new cutout arch…which I think is BRILLIANT! Seriously, Jeffrey Campbell never ceases to amaze…I am so impressed with how the brand has progressed over the last several years, becoming now, a truly iconic and coveted brand of our generation. When we’re all hanging out with the aliens on the moon 30 years from now, people will be like “Man, remember those Jeffrey Campbell shoes? Those damn Litas? I have a pair of vintage ones…” Yep, that’ll totally be the conversations we’ll be having about JC in the future girls.
Anyway, at first the missing arch support seems like it would make the shoe uncomfortable, but nope, they seriously are SO comfy. They apparently put a rise on the heel which helps support with the missing arch…LOVE. I’m really considering buying a pair once I get my taxes done…I actually DO need more neutral colored shoes in my wardrobe…right? RIGHT. Or should I wait to see who else carries them in possibly a different color combo…? Nah. More on my visit to the JC booth later and how I totally didin’t realize I met the man himself (yes, the actual JC), but for now I leave you with THE BENCHED by Jeffrey Campbell <3
