When we first learned about Ruthie Davis and her spectacular shoes it was through Beyonce of course who was donning a pair of her “Pluto” Peep Toe Pumps and looking as fabulous as ever. Since then we’ve been following Ruthie Davis and her blog, uncovering how she travels back and forth to Italy to oversee the production of her stellar footwear empire and most recently begun following her on Twitter too.
Pynk Magazine got a chance to interview the fab shoe maven. Check it out below:
We follow you on Twitter and your Blog Ruthie Davis Data Points (http://pynkmag.com/Ua). What is your inspiration for the perfect pair of heels? Do you just wake up and design or do things/people tend to inspire you?
I am inspired by things that are architectural, fierce and exciting. I love fashion but more in the sense of the lines and cuts and fits of clothing, bags and shoes. I love a James Bond Girl who is sporty and sexy at the same time. I design heels that I want to wear. I’m a woman and I get it. All girls want to be supermodels and to feel confident an put together – that’s
how I want to feel and that’s how my heels make girls feel.
I’m totally smitten with your jeweled accented heels because they leave such an impression whether you’re entering or leaving a room; was it your intention to give your line such a unique feel?
I love combining two unlikely attributes to make something unexpected – like the dichotomy of girlie, colorful jewels and hard-edge spikes.
We heard you say that your second favorite shoe in the world right now are your ACE in Nude/Rosegold. What is your absolute favorite shoe right now?
I’m absolutely loving my “Microcompact” booties in black. I mean, they fit like a glove, go with anything, have a 6-inch heel with a 2.5 – inch platform and I can confirm that it is possible to run in them if you have to as I ran 4 blocks n them today to catch a train at Penn Station in NYC.
Your shoes are uber popular with celebrities and have been seen just about everywhere, even us regular ladies are clamoring for a pair or two. If you could recommend a style for Michelle Obama which would you recommend to her and where do you suppose she’d wear them?
I think Mrs. Obama might really like my “Prefab” Pumps in Nude. They encompass a certain refinement and classic sophistication with my new slightly pointy toe and super slim platform. I think they embrace the style and modern class of The First Lady herself.
I am completely in love and ready to marry a pair of Ruthie Davis “Art” in Nude. They are masterpieces! What is your response when ordinary women like me swoon over your shoes or tell you that wearing them makes them feel like a superhero?
That is the best compliment I can receive. Not sure what you mean by ordinary women because I think that all women who love shoes are extraordinary!!
