I love a jeweled pair of Miu Miu shoes as much as anybody. Not only do I own a pair of Miu Miu jeweled oxfords, but they’re probably the pair of shoes in my closet that gets the most compliments – women, gays, even straight men spontaneously tell me how great they are all the time. The key to their greatness is that the little crystals on the back of the shoe are unexpected – it’s a smart, playful touch on an otherwise workhorse shoe.
The Miu Miu Jeweled Suede Platforms, on the other hand, put the playfulness right up front. And in back. And on the sides. As much as I love some sparkle, the scale of this shoe’s structure and all the shine that’s packed on to it feel like too much for me. Fortunately, the inherent craziness does make it a perfect candidate for this week’s Fill in the Blank. You know what to do in the comments, and if you have an itch to get some bling on your feed, you can pre-order this shoe for $2100 via Neiman Marcus.
