Jenna Lyons, J.Crew president and executive creative director, with a company for 22 years, is staring in this short video talking about J.Crew's traditional shoe manufacturing techniques and creative thinking process behind making of every pair of J.Crew  'Shiny Ponies' as she likes to call the shoes which make the cut and eventually show up on J.Crew's store shelves (those that don't are called then ugly Dollies).

J.Crew shoes are made in the small workshop at Pisa, Italy. Jenna herself owns 289 pairs of shoes, some of which she doesn't wear but likes to look at them. :)

So let's check out the video, Jenna Lyons about  'Shiny Ponies':

Bellow is a selection of my Shiny Pony favorites, with free shipping and reasonable prices for a great quality, I will be sure to order at least one pair of ballet flats (leopard print or lavender) and one pair of chunky heels!

"As far as I'm concerned leopard is a neutral."

"Design inspiration is sometimes like a river, picking up things along the way."

"These say business in a front and party in the back."

Jenna about J.Crew's Shiny Ponies: 

"We wanted something that felt chunky and really glossy with a lot of surface areas so you can use incredible colors and shapes on it and makes a statement."

Which pair of Shiny Ponies is your favorite?
