Bravo to Ms Kristen Mom on a job well-done styling these shoes. Yes, a stylist actually has to do things to shoes to make them look nice- they aren't able to simply place them on set and have them look rad.
The images with the pin tray seem to give a complimentary element to the overall feel and work that went into the production of the shoot (perhaps I am biased), but yes, I have removed it in the images as well. Cheers!
I promise not to post more shoes next time.
