This is the shoe snob's answer to the jelly sandal that flip flopped its way back into every 90s kids' heart, presenting a solution to the burning desire for a comfortable shoe that cannot also be found in a four-year-old's wardrobe (excluding Ms A. Wang). Pick a platform height and you're ready to go.
A much lusted over bookmark in my browser history, in my opinion, this little baby was Alexander Wang's crowning jewel of 2012. The most perfect combination of crocodile leather goodness with just enough of a metal edge to it, all tied up in one petite package.
Bravo Mr Wang. I'm lusting over it nearly as much as I am over your niece's wardrobe. Dressing like a four-year-old at fashion week is absolutely acceptable... Right?
Now that spring is finally hit us (with bushfires and torrential rain apparently?!), I'm feeling nostalgic for the ankle boots that basically governed my winter wardrobe. Goodbye the beloved thigh-high boots of yesteryear, I was feeling exposed ankles, intricate leather work and touches of metal detailing during the winter months.
Yet, even now, with the warmer weather, I'm finding that I'm reaching for cut-outs a la the Balenciaga Ceintures, rather than sandals and flip-flops thongs. While this may or may not be fostering my aversion to feet (true story), it's becoming readily obvious... tis the season for enclosed toes.
