I’m pretty sure Sarah Burton may have subconsciously consulted me when it came to the design of this wedge – because it’s literally everything I would want in a shoe for the new season. Peep-toe (for showcasing my newly painted lilac nails)? Check. Wear-with-anything black? Check. Fabulous large bow for that girlish edge? Check. Innovative wedge? Check. Check check check!
Alexander McQueen’s black wedge ribbon sandal is, in a couple of carefully chosen words, utterly divine. This is the stuff of shoe dreams, my friends – the ones where you imagine yourself entering your newly refurbished Carrie Bradshaw walk-in shoe closet. They’re dark, mysterious and made to work with every trend for the new season, from fetish to clashing prints.
So, when I look at the price tag, my eyes just gloss over. Because, when it comes to a shoe like this, no price is too expensive.
