This is a very different version of Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Palais’ pumps from the last ones I showed you, which had blue suede uppers and slender stiletto heels. These, by contrast, are all about the chunkiness: the heel is so wide it’s almost a wedge, and these have a very retro feel to them, like something from the late 60s or early 70s. The uppers also have an elasticated area on the vamp, plus two straps to hold them on.
Judging by the images on the Net-a-Porter product page, I think these look better on than they do on their own – and even more like a pair of chunky wedges – but I still don’t think I could be persuaded to buy them, even if they were on a serious discount. As it is, these will set you back £720. What do you think of them?
