Azzedine Alaïa black ruffle cuff suede sandals

Is anyone else just itching to grab a pair of scissors and snip off that cuff? Just me? OK, well, moving on…

These black suede sandals are by Azzedine Alaïa, and as you can see, this look is all about the ankle. That huge, ruffled cuff will simultaneously hide your ankles AND draw attention to them, and if you’re thinking that’s an odd kind of combination, well, you’re probably right. Oh, and just in case you thought the ruffles weren’t ostentatious enough, the frills are edged with little floral-shaped sequins, which you’ll need to visit Far Fetch to zoom in and see.

I think shoes which emphasise the ankles in this kind of way can be rather difficult to wear, so I’m curious to know what you all think of these ones. If you love them, click here to buy a pair, but be prepared to part with £1,299: ouch!
