Anyone who knows me well can tell you that I am a flats girl, all the way. While I own my fair share of heels, they spend 95 percent of their time high up on the top shelf in my closet (that I can’t even reach without a chair to stand on) in their shoe bags. But, while browsing the new arrivals at the Alexander Wang store on Grand Street, I immediately did a double take when I saw these.
First of all, there’s no platform (!) so I might actually be able to walk like a normal human being in them. Secondly, I love the way the laces crisscross and wrap around the ankle — so sexy, right? And finally, the way that one of the suede pieces falls behind the heel is one of those little details that makes Alexander Wang’s accessories truly stand out.
I should probably hold off on buying sandals like these until there isn’t snow on the ground, but Fashion Week and my birthday are just a month away, and that’s as good an excuse as any, right?
