Elena and Elaina

Kate Spade has two hot pink patent leather flats that are subtly different but equally desirable. There’s Elena (with an ankle strap), and Elaina (with a little bow). I do love a good, lipstick-hued shoe; don’t you? Which one do you like better?

    Which one? It’s like my very own Sophie’s choice… Ok, ok — Elaina!

    Definitely the Elena. I am not a fan of the casing on teh Elaina.

    Oh i’m soo in love with Elena! She would be pretty and practical for bike riding to the market it! The patent version is amazing! xoxo

    definitely elena (love straps, don’t love bows)
    how adorable!

    I think Elena has a more foot-flattering shape.

    Elaina* not Elena. Whew! That’s confusing.

    I love the one with the strap, very cute :)

    Cute but since I have short legs, I’d go for Elaina. According to What Not To Wear, ankle straps shorten the leg line.

    Heyyyyy, I’m Elena! But I actually prefer the Elaina :)

    Yup, as soon as I saw the Elena in my inbox, I knew they had to be mine. But let’s keep it real … ankle straps are the pits!

    oh my goodness, there is no way i can just pick one. i mean, they are both so amazing. straps rock, always… but bows are so so so pretty.


  15. That’s really tough because I like the profile of Elena more, but I really like looking down on Elaina more. Tough call.

    oh I just love kate spade. Elaina would have to be my choice but I do have a soft spot for bows.

    I think Elana would get some more use though, I have enough shoes with straps!

    Elaina does it for me. I think you need to be 7 feet tall and weigh nothing to get away with an ankle strap. Which is definitely not a description of me.

    Elena, hands down!

  20. Laine June 8, 2011 at 8:43 am #

    Elena! Shoes without straps fall off my feet. :/

    I am totally lusting after the Elena, although black is more practical for me than pink. I’d love confirmation first that the leather really is soft, though. I can’t justify dropping $198 unless I can wear them both with and without stockings.

    Elaina because I love bows and my legs are short and the strap is usually not that flattering on me, especially on flats. Love the summer fresh pink colour.

    i’m a sucker for bows so i’d have to go with elaina.

  24. Rebecca June 8, 2011 at 2:22 pm #

    Like them both! But if I really had to choose I think I’d pick the Elaina

  25. Desiree June 9, 2011 at 5:02 am #

    I think I like the Elaina better because they’re super fast to slip on. I also can’t resist the little bow.

  26. Danielle@Newlyweds Paradise June 10, 2011 at 7:25 am #

    Kate Spade can do no wrong in my eyes! Both are so cute. I love the bow on the one and the darling strap on the other. I see jeans with the bow and a skirt with the straps. Therefore, I would have to have both :-P.

  27. Elena June 10, 2011 at 2:10 pm #

    Why Elena of course!

  28. Amanda June 15, 2011 at 10:40 am #

    I love the Elaina. I’m not a big “strapy” fan.

  29. Gena June 16, 2011 at 2:59 pm #

    Elaina all the way!
