Shoe Kryptonite: Yves Saint Laurent green suede Tribtoo platform pumps

If you’re a shoe lover (and I can’t think of another reason you’d be visiting this website), you’re probably already familiar with these shoes: they’re Yves Saint Laurent’s classic ‘Tribtoo’ platform pumps, and they’ve been available in more colours than I can count.

These ones are my favourite, though.

Because these ones are green.

Need I say more?

(Carvela actually released a shoe almost identical to this a couple of years ago, although it had a sprinkling of crystals on the heel. It was called “Astroid’, and it’s one of the biggest regrets of my shoe-buying life that I didn’t buy a pair when I had the opportunity. I still think of them every now and then – they were even nicer than these are!)

  • Oh Shoeperwoman, i wish we were friends and had the same sized feet! Not buying the KG asteroids are one of my biggest regrets too (although you might be able to find them on ebay, i’ve found them on there before, although it is the black i want) and due to lack of funds i left the ‘ediva’ KGs in the frasers sale and then they were sold out online :'( i haven’t been able to get the green/bluey river island slingbacks you just posted out of my mind til i saw them instore and now i think i might just have to ditch this immunology essay to go buy them as consolation of all those pairs i have previously left behind!

    • Lol! You sound like my shoe twin πŸ™‚

      I do perdiodically still search eBay for the Asteroids – any time I’ve seen them, they’ve always been the wrong size, though, which is horrible, because my heart leaps at the sight of them only to plumment in dissapointment when I realise they wouldn’t fit. I will persevere, though πŸ™‚

  • There one of my big shoe regrets as well! I tried them on but as I’m 5′ 10″ they made me look like a giant, so I let my friend talk me out of them πŸ™

  • I spotted them a while ago.. love at first sight!
    I was coming back every day to take a look at them, and then stopped. Now they’re almost sold out.. but well, they’re too expencive anyway)

  • My husband is considering blocking your website, because every other day I show him some shoes and say, can I get these? And these, I really really want!

  • I want to cry every time you post a pair of beautiful green shoes that either I can’t afford or can’t be shipped to the US. I have come across these so many times, but they are just sadly out of my price range.
