While I've yet to actually see a pair of Massimo Dutti's shoes in person (because its New York store is above 14th Street and I don't like to buy shoes without trying them on), I feel like the brand could be the best kept secret in footwear. Its shoes all appear to be high-quality, stylish and polished, and most of them come in at under $300.
I want almost every pair of shoes MD has on offer right now, but I'm especially interested in these slingback heels. I already have a pair of slingback kitten heels, and have been wanting something a little higher -- and less expensive than Manolos.
These are just the right mix of ladylike, grandma-ish and sexy. In fact, they might just be worth trekking uptown for.
Crocodile Slingback Court Shoe, $180, available at Massimo Dutti.
