The best thing about filling that gap in your wardrobe is that suddenly all other shoes on social media, in store windows and in magazines become less interesting – that greedy feeling, that urge to quickly go into that boutique to see the new collection is completely gone. The quest is over.
Finding the perfect basic shoe with all the right features is so difficult because the shape plays the leading role and every technical detail becomes even more important. This is the first heeled sandal I’ve bought since spring 2013. A solid 11cm heel, no fuss double straps a thick one and a delicate one, no appliqués. A chunky vs. frail balance that would have defenitely been approved by Ann Demeulemeester. The thick leather stitched border surrounding the shoe reminds me both of dr.Martens and of a car bumper.
