ShoesTV is in Las Vegas for FN Platform at MAGIC. Hundreds of the top shoe brands in the world are showing off their upcoming lines under one roof. Yesterday we hung out with Mike Rowe from "Dirty Jobs" and checked out his collaboration with CAT Footwear. We also met the very talented designer Eric Rutberg and got a sneak peek at his second collection of Eric Rutberg Transparent.
Mike Rowe is known for getting dirty on his Discovery Channel TV show "Dirty Jobs." Rowe told ShoesTV that his show inspired him to team up with CAT Footwear to create Mike Rowe WORKS, a line of shoes for hard working men who need functional shoes. The collection features both casual (yet rugged) shoes and work boots. Rowe told us that the boots help him to not fall on his butt as much as he used to!

After hanging out with Rowe, we cruised over to meet Eric Rutberg and learned about his line Eric Rutberg Transparent. Rutberg is a fourth generation shoe man and has designed for brands like L.A.M.B., Betsey Johnson and Jennifer Lopez. Rutberg's shoes are, in a word, fierce.

We're loving the fall collections we have seen so far and can't wait to check out even more shoes tomorrow. Stay tuned for a sneak peek at shoes that won't hit the shelves for months!
