A pointy toe, a thick ankle strap, and a stiletto make for a pretty sexy shoe. I especially like the ones where the front portion ends with a clean straight line, as opposed to a predictable curve. I think these shoes are actually a lot more versatile than one might initially expect. I would pair it with a sleek evening gown to bring a modern edge to the look. I could also see them with skinny cargo pants and a vintage t-shirt, making the look go from casual to rock and roll instantly. Of course, you can also pair the shoes with any hot little dress you already own.
I really wanted the L.A.M.B. version in black suede but it was sold out everywhere. I settled on the wine croc-embossed version (pictured above) as some of you may have seen on Instagram. I decided to return them but kept checking online periodically and amazingly, I tracked down a pair of the black ones! It was the last pair and in my size (kismet!)
On Instagram and Facebook, I actually got a lot of feedback from people who didn't like the shoes but I decided I like them and that's all that matters. What do you think of this trend? Yay or Nay?
