Footwear News Names Tory Burch and Miuccia Prada Fashion Winners

Footwear News recently named Tory Burch its 2007 Brand of the Year for taking her "modest retail concept" to the uber-trendy brand it is today. And why wouldn't they? Tory Burch's signature cross has practically become the symbol of chic – worn proudly by the fashion-elite and celebrities alike. If you've been contemplating buying a pair of Tory Burch flats but are worried about dolling out nearly $200 dollars for a "trend," now is your time to invest—this designer isn't going anywhere.

Neiman Marcus, Shopbop, and Saks Fifth Avenue all have a great selection of Tory Burch shoes, but the popular sizes tend to disappear as quickly as they're stocked, so buy quickly if you'd like a pair before Christmas. We're still in love with the popular Reva flat (especially the metallic version, $195), but we also adore the Uma Embossed boots ($595).

Meanwhile, Miuccia Prada was the recipient of FN's Designer of the Year award. Prada was honored for "push[ing] the footwear envelope" with funky styles that resulted in two blockbuster collections. You can pick up a pair of her fabulous shoes at Saks Fifth Avenue (FN's Retailer of the Year for 2007).

Additionally, Timberland was granted FN's first-ever Green Award for their efforts in the environment including posting a “nutritional label” on all their shoe boxes and their “Reboot” program which allows customers to turn in their worn-out boots to stores. You can purchase a pair, such as these Wodehouse Wing Tip Oxfords ($225) for the fella in your life at
