These sandals are completely, certifiably insane. So how can you not love them? I, for one, am head over heels for Alexander McQueen’s latest heel-less wonders. It’s all about the overall effect, but one detail is more awe-striking than the next. And yes, awe-striking also means totally impractical. First of all, the fully bloomed appliqué flowers are made of real enamel, so they are hard and heavy. Add decadent tulle backing to these roses, plus palette accents, and it’s a gorgeous garden party.
Plucked right off the runway, these are the shoes you never imagined would make it to retail – which makes them that much more special. Sure, they are meant to be displayed in a museum case, but there’s nothing wrong with wearing them a couple of times. For very short periods of time. With that lack of heel (that still has you standing 6.5” taller), the extended platform, complete with metal horseshoe accent, is all you have to stand on. This style has been done to death by Zanotti and the like, so you might have no problem adjusting. Just be sure have a burly man handy to escort you, especially if you plan on going anywhere near the Meatpacking District. On Net-a-Porter for $7,520.
