The ‘Scarlett’ spiked sandals being offered by Sam Edelman immediately remind me of Ruthie Davis’ Spikette styles (and in a looser fashion, some of Louboutin’s & Rodarte’s past offerings). Let’s take a peek.

Also available in pewter grey at $200 via Piperlime.
Ruthie Davis Spikette:
The Edelman’s feel strongly designer-inspired - à la Ruthie Davis’, et al.
And yes, I do *love, love, LOVE* the Ruthie Davis shoes. But, I honestly can’t justify the expense involved in the purchase of them, more’s the pity. Would that beauty and uniqueness were the only factors that I need to consider when planning my shoe purchases – Alas, this is simply not the case.
Luckily, my love of the deep blues has me swooning over Edelman’s richly-hued ‘Scarlett’ pumps. I had thought I was ‘over’ the whole spiked-and-studded shoes trend – managing to escape without any actual acquisitions in that trend department – until these caught my eye. With a little bit of patient budgeting, I just might be able to finagle a pair of these baby’s into my shoe-wardrobe.
On a side note, I showed these to Hubby. His reaction was one of controlled horror. I’m pretty sure he was envisioning all of the various ways I might manage to injure myself or others with such wickedly-armored shoes.
Point taken, I suppose.
I still want them, though . . . Maybe if I promise Hubby that I’ll be very, very, careful?
