Introducing FATEstep

You may or may not know of Damien Fate but he's the designer being FATEwear, FATEplay and a co-designer of ColdLogic. The man has some serious talent and to add to his ever growing resume he's released a brand new collection called FATEstep.

Of course FATEstep is a shoe collection. The initial release is 20 pairs of shoes that are for men, women and even some unisex pairs. The shoes are all made to fit the SLink feet for men, the SLink and Maitreya Lara feet for women and a few of the pairs even fit the standard avatar feet.

FATEisland reopened yesterday with a brand new store build and lots of space for even more shoes after you finished buying all these ones!

My personal favourites are the Nylon Chucks. These are unisex shoes that have a hud full of original artwork by the incredibly talented Nylon Pinkney who owns Nylon Outfitters.

FATEstep - Nylon Sneakers

The hud allows you to change parts of the shoe individually and also gives you the option to have no lace, tied laces or undone laces. That makes them perfect for tucking under jeans without having the laces poking through. This was personally my favourite design that Nylon had contributed for the hud but there are so many to choose from. If bright designs aren't your thing then the alternative is the Ziggy Chucks that has plain colour choices but with all the perks of mixing and matching.

Each style of shoe comes in two versions. Each version has a different hud with different options and colours to choose from. However in both versions of the shoe you will get the option of wearing it with or without socks.

First up is Atwell (left) and Hayley (right)

FATEstep - Atwell And Hayley Boots

These adorable little booties are for the SLink high or Maitreya Lara feet. With the huds you can play with the colour of the fabric on separate pieces of the bootie, the laces and the buttons. Both Atwell and Hayley come with standard white socks but you can purchase an additional hud that will let you change the colour of the socks to a ton of different block colours and patterns.

I'm a big fan of a shoe with a pointed toe so getting my hands on a pair of the Bennet (left) and Chloe (right) pumps made me more than happy.

FATEstep - Bennet And Chloe Pumps

Bennet has a soft satin texture to most of the toe and on stripes around the foot with a matt toe cap. Chloe has a universal texture with no variation over the shoe. Both huds allow full colour customisation of each piece of the shoe and both include optional socks. These are for the SLink Medium feet or the Matireya Lara feet.

Sandra (left) and Denton (right) are a classic pair of chunky pumps that every girl needs in her inventory.

FATEstep - Sandra And Denton Pumps

As with all the shoes you can with them with or without the included socks. Sandra has a universal colour over the entire shoe that of course can be customised with the hud, including individual pieces. The Denton however has a lovely gradient texture that you can change and play around with to find one that suits you and your outfit. Grab your SLink Medium feet or Maitreya Lara feet for these.

Dolores (left) and Riordan (right) are gorgeous classic shaped boots.

FATEstep - Dolores And Riordan Boots

These boots can be worn with the SLink Medium feet, the Maitreya Lara feet or can be worn with the default avatar feet too. Optional socks are included with both pairs and the hud that allows you to customise to your hearts content.

Last up are a perfect pair of flats.

FATEstep - Carter And Betty Flats

Carter (left) and Betty (right) fit the SLink Flat feet, Maitreya Lara Feet or your standard avatar feet. I love, love, love the choice of patterns and colours that come with the Carter hud but if you want something plain then go for the Betty. Both include the optional socks and honestly every girl needs a good, classic pair of ballet flats in their inventory.

Because I have teenie, tiny little girly feet I can't show you the mens styles but if you nip over to the ever gorgeous Amadeo's blog then you can see the lovely showcase he's done of the men's shoes.

Happy Shopping!
