Rebecca’s shoe collection.

This week, we caught up with Rebecca Minkoff herself on her favorite topic: shoes. A self-described “shoe addict,” Rebecca reveals how her love of shoes began, what’s on her wish list right now and her future shoe designing plans.

My shoe obsession started when…

It all started when a boyfriend of mine back in 2003 gave me a pair of orange patent Sigerson Morrison flats. Every time I would look down at my feet, they would make me so happy.

The shoes I can’t live without this fall

The Diva Heels in midnight blue suede with black straps. They’re versatile, will go with almost any outfit and despite being a heel, are very comfortable.

The thing about shoes that has me completely, madly, deeply in love…

It’s a way to showcase personality. I like that you can take risks with shoes – it’s easier to take a risk with novelty shoes than novelty skirts, pants or tops.

How I would describe my shoe closet…

I need an intervention. My shoes have overgrown my space and it’s to a point where I forget about shoes that I have and that I love. In other words, I need help!

My favorite everyday shoes…

A bootie is the perfect day-to-day shoe. My Isabel Marant booties have become a go-to, but I love my black RM Sari Boots for colder weather.

My future shoe design plans…

Sneakers are not out of the question. Something very fun is in the works.

My dream shoes are…

The Laurence Dacade burgundy quilted boots – they’re pretty delicious.

My shoe wish list right now…

I want all of them.
