You know you should never buy shoes that hurt your feet within the first five minutes of wearing them, but do you stay true to this rule? The temptation of a beautiful heel can be strong, but I’ve learned the hard way. This also happens to rule out most shoes for me. The good news? Not only do I love the way they look, the Givenchy babies make the grade and stays on the list.
A wide strap accentuated with buckles makes a big visual statement, resulting in multi-seasonal sandals that essentially go with everything. That thick strap also functions like a harness to hold your foot in place, so you don’t slide forward and you’re not putting pressure on the balls of your feet. Enough said! These are comfortable and sexy, complete with a timeless rocker vibe that never hurts your style. Don’t even wait for Givenchy’s sandals to go on sale; they are worth every, single penny. On Net-a-Porter for $880.
