Only Giuseppe Zanotti can make holes look this good. Can the man do no wrong? And it’s not like he doesn’t experiment. From shearling-lined winter boots to candy-shop bright platforms to elegantly adorned flats, when you’re talking Giuseppe, the issue is more a matter of what’s not to love. Case in point, these taupe suede sandals, a relatively mellow option from the high-heel-loving designer. Grommets, buckles, and straps are delivered in just the right portions and proportions. The timeless silhouette keeps it classy, the soft take on hardware makes it young, and the final product is hot, fun, and tasteful, each in measures as balanced as the shoes’ own decorative details.
Adjustable buckles and a study back zip ensure a precision-perfect fit. After a lot of wear – and you know these will get some miles on them – the suede is likely to stretch, so you’ll appreciate the fact that you can tighten up the straps. With a coyly sexy style that packs a surprising punch, these neutral 4.5” heels will enhance your favorite brights from resort to summer and back again. On Net-a-Porter for $695.
