I say they’re an obsession because I hopped over to Saks Fifth Avenue’s shoe mecca, 10022-SHOE, last night(a shoe store so large it needs its own zip code) and spotted them taunting me from a table. “Try me on,” came the siren song from these all-too-much-attitude shoes.
No, I’m just looking.
“No, REALLY. Do it. You won’t regret it. What could it hurt?”
If I had a dollar for every time that phrase has gotten me in trouble with men and shoes, I would be so wealthy I wouldn’t be sitting here right now. But, alas, I tried them on and got myself into a world of obsession. I am DREAMING about these shoes for summer and into Fashion Week.
The 2″ platform is actually rather generous and the fit is snug. We’re talking a 7″ stacked heel, leather lining and a padded sole so you’re not in tears within the first hour of wearing. The zippers add such rocker attitude to the whole thing. They are, in short, a work of rock & roll magic.
Did I mention they’re on sale? Please, someone get them… before I start to cry…
