With so many shoes on the luxury mass market and new designers popping up all over the place, doing a wearable and neutral design in an interesting way is an ever-present challenge for people and brands who want to set themselves apart. Not only is that the kind of shoe that can persuade a customer to make her first purchase with your company, but it’s the kind that will give her positive thoughts about your brand every time she dons the pair. If that’s not a recipe for brand success, I don’t know what is.
The Tabitha Simmons Cutout Lizard Ankle Wrap Sandals are just that kind of shoe. The texture and color variations in the lizard skin provide plenty of visual fun, but at they’re hard, they’re a brown and cream sandal that could go with a lot of the things you have in your wardrobe.
And not only are these shoes both interesting and neutral, but they also have the kind of heel that you can wear all day – chunky and stable, with a platform to cancel out a bit of the height. The lizard pattern used in so many straps might be a little much for some customers, but if you want a shoe to make a statement and do so neutrally, this is what you’re looking for. If you have the money to pay the price for exotics, that is. Buy through Bergdorf Goodman for $1795.
