As we were talking about chains on shoes earlier today, here’s another pair for you to cast judgement on! These ones are by Alaïa, and feature a much thicker chain than the Versus sandals I showed you: it winds up in a t-bar, to wrap around the ankle, not just once, but three times.
Having dismissed the Versus shoes out of hand foot, I’m now going to be fickle and say that I actually quite like these, and being able to see what they look like on the model over at Net-a-Porter has definitely helped sway my opinion on them, although the £1,555 price tag swayed it right back again pretty quick.
What’s the verdict?
These really are gorgeous! The gun metal look of the leather and the chains work trés well together, sadly the price doesn’t, well for me anyway!
Whoa, expensive…. but if I had that money I’d buy 2 pairs. Love them!!
