I am an enormous fan of lace-ups, I don’t know if anyone’s noticed that yet. I get really excited when my favorite brands put out something awesome, especially when they typically focus on more on heels and things like that – as with Miu Miu. I am so besotted with this brand, so I became almost shamefully gleeful when I stumbled across Miu Miu’s Studded Lace-Ups ($524.99 at Saks). A simple name for a super shoe – plus, Saks does itself proud again: they’re on sale, down from $750.
There is literally not a single aspects about these shoes that I do not adore, and I can already think of two dozen outfits I would wear them with, right off the top of my head. They are totally unique, and while the pebbled texture of the leather plays a big part in their innovative look, the studs and metal detailing are what really do it.
Studs and metal, studs and metal; any pair of shoes in the world that combine studs and metal will probably make me squeal with delight. I really am awfully shameful. Shameless about it, too!
But back to the shoes: Oxford in style, the metal is located in a thin line at the toe and at the heel.
Actually, you have to see the back as well. You can’t truly appreciate how awesome the shoes are until you do. Observe:
Could you die? The zipper is functional and adds a little hardcore flair, especially when combined with those perfect punk rock studs. Better still? They’ve got a stacked heel, for a little bit of rockabilly style. It’s about 1 and ¼ inches, and there’s a wooden platform measuring a quarter of an inch.
Seriously, could you die? I’m not the only person bouncing in my seat, right?
