In 2005, the It Bag craze took over the accessory world. In fact, when we started PurseBlog the height of the It Bag was nearing its peak. At the time I was not involved with shoes as much, my bag addiction took front seat. But if I had to place a shoe into the “it shoe” category, the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Platform Sandals would be there front and center.
I mean, look at these shoes! How can you not fall instantly in love with the design?
I am in love with these shoes, head-over-heels. The one aspect holding me back is the overall heel being 6″. You guys, I am 5’10″ (pushing near 5’11″). I am not complaining about my height, but super high heels were never my thing. I continue to embrace heels more and more, but these shoes give me height anxiety. I need to work on that. Because otherwise these shoes are perfect.
The YSL Tribute Sandals speak for themselves, having an iconic design with the crisscrossing bands of leather and buckled T-strap. The covered platform is 1.25″ while the heel is an additional 4.75″. There are multiple color options. When I covered these shoes on my Jungle Theme day on PurseBlog, I fell in love with the green. As much as I love the green pair, I feel like the brown will not only be more wearable but also show off the design perfectly. Buy via Saks for $760.
What is the tallest heel you wear?
