Oh, those just tick all the boxes for me. Big, chunky, statement-y shoe (I’m still in the throes of this phase), patent leather love, nice wide forefoot strap to keep ’em from biting into my tender white flesh, interesting monochrome buckle that gives good detail without distracting from the shape of the shoe, good sturdy ankle strap to keep ’em from falling off my hoof, Cinderella-like, as I trip down the palace stairs, fantastic neutral color that is going to go with everything.
Except for this minor detail:
Oh, and they’re $700.
Don’t think of it as seven hundred dollars: think of it as $140 per inch of height.
