Pierre Hardy Crystal-Encrusted Suede Sandals, $2395 via Net-a-Porter
I’ve written many times before about my love of weird shoes, and that affection seemingly grows by the day. I love footwear at which women on the street will stare in puzzlement and that style photographers will break their necks to capture on film. I want my shoes to be an entity unto themselves.
So naturally, I love the graphic, in-your-face nature of the Pierre Hardy Crystal Encrusted Suede Sandals. These are exactly the shoes that would get their own close-up shot on all the big street style blogs if donned by, say, Taylor Tomasi-Hill at Fashion Week.
There’s just so much to love about these shoes. The contrast in color and texture between the black suede trim and champagne crystal interior, the graphic circle pattern, the way that the shoes will look against your feet. I could go on, but I won’t, because these are the kind of shoes that will either speak to your inner weirdo or they won’t, and if they do, then you already know what I’m going to say. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $2395.
