MIZ MOOZ 2011 FOOTWEAR-FOR STYLISH GALS WHO CAN THROW A STRIKE...

OR ASPIRE TO...

 BOWLMOR LANES, WEST 44ST, NYC



How fun was this. We loved learning about the trend-on, adorable cool girl- playful footwear line .......




MIZ MOOZ while playing---

...at the glam, night club worthy Bowlmor Lanes---right near Times Square.

Though we probably embarrassed ourselves in the "Strike" competition (despite taking bowling as a phys-ed credit in college(!!!) )...we looked just fine, shoe-wise--- in an updated,  and comfy take on the retro saddle shoe that attendees were given.

Here---a picture with and without heels---very Janelle Monáe---the terrific singer/songwriter with an eccentric fun style---just like this brand.

Besides bowling which we LOVED---


we also took in the display of shoes for summery temps and for when the mercury dips...all made solidly of quality materials...


...with vintage ankle strap, Mary Jane styles in cute color combos...




... that ranged from adorable to the functional---included kickers with warm shearling cuffs/collars, lug soles, wedges, two or more buckles...













Pretty pumps oxfords including this menswear inspired lace-ups.























...and for soaring hot summer days...we liked the multi strap sandals that kinda reminded us of the classic fisherman's sandal---but here with cute wedges.


Lots of cut-outs  and detailed ankle wraps in platforms and booties that work in three seasons.












A few more of our favs...love the green and leather on the heel---and Victorian lace-up booties with bold zips



Spats---great with jeans


























Suede--- retro twists reminded us of Hush Puppies---but here more feminine.

INFO: Lots of places to buy online and 3D ---including Nordstrom's with prices typically ranging from $99-$259 (Boots)
