Casadei Blade, $820
Casadei’s ‘Blade’ pumps need to introduction: I’ve written about them a few times here, and no matter how many subtle variations the brand releases in this style, I still can’t get enough of that dangerous-looking “blade” heel.
This season’s incarnation of the Casadei classic comes in a variety of colours, but of course, this rich red suede is my favourite. I also love the sweetheart vamp – always a detail guaranteed to make me like a shoe a little bit more – and although ankle straps aren’t my favourite footwear feature, the delicacy of this one, and the lovely contrast of metallic leather against soft suede, makes it a perfect addition to the style.
These are such a classic that there’s not much more to say about them: other than that I’d happily have a pair in every colour if I possibly could. Some things never go out of style…
