Never underestimate the power of an interesting heel to move a shoe from ordinary to eye-catching. The Alexander McQueen Suede and Perspex Ankle Boots would be perfect functional and a good addition to a shoe collection without the ombre lucite heel, but they’d also be exactly the same as the shoes that a lot of girls have in their closets. The tweaked heel makes the shoe special and interesting, and its details like that that really elevate your personal style.
We talked recently about how versatile lucite can truly be, and the Valentino collection that prompted that conversation couldn’t be further, aesthetically speaking, from this bootie. McQueen, unknowingly, has proved my point – as long as a designer is judicious and edits his or her creations well, there are few limitations to the kinds of styles that can use lucite to fantastic effect. The transition from black paint at the top to full clarity at the bottom ensures that people will always have something to look at while you walk away. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $1435.
