I don’t think it would be fair to just call this a sandal. Not only is this one of the most beautifully constructed shoes I’ve ever seen, it breaks visual boundaries. We already knew the man had a way with accessories, but Reed Krakoff’s latest architectural lines are more on par with contemporary art, sculpture, and furniture than a spring sandal.
No attention to detail has been spared. With a T-pin closure (T for Tina…Duh! Clearly, Reed made this shoe for me) and cutout block heel with lacquer finish, it’s insanely beautiful! Notice the bridle leather looped effortless through the cutout heel; and the way the stitching brilliant completes the strap. Finally, Reed brings new meaning to the term “jewel tones.” Vibrant cobalt and emerald is a most sophisticated color combination.
I can’t think of anything that won’t go with these shoes – it must be a sign that I need to have them. At Reed Krakoff for $750.
Pair with: I also intend to deck my arms in enamel bracelets throughout the coming months. Hermès Point d’Orgue bangles ($450-$700), J. Crew’s two-tone ovals ($35), Bottega Veneta’s cuff ($5,250), and Aurelie Bidermann coral bracelet ($1,700) will all pop alongside these terrific (with a capital T!) shoes.
