If you know me in real life, or read my personal blog, you’ll probably know that I’m not very fond of Things That Live in the Sea. Crustaceans are my true mortal enemies, but while I don’t mind fish when they’re in tanks – and, more crucially, when they’re alive – dead fish… well, they kind of freak me out just a little. OK, a lot. This is why I am one of the only people in the world – in fact, perhaps the only person in the world – who didn’t love Giuseppe Zanotti’s fishbone sandals when they first came out a couple of years ago. The originals were much higher and strappier than these slip-on versions, but they had the same crystalised fishbone in the centre of the foot and… yeah. Dead fish + footwear = not the combination for me, and I don’t care who designs them, or how many crystals they add to them.
I realise I’m alone in this position, though, so I’m dutifully informing you that this lower-heeled version is $995 at Neiman Marcus. You can click here to buy them.
