These were tried on by a young asian woman in the Steve Madden store I visited this weekend. Only a woman who was wearing pants like these could pull off these shoes. I'm not saying they should be worn with these pants just that the sort of woman who wears pants like these is the sort of woman who could pull these off. Not for the average woman, like me. There's something strangely appealing about the white snakeskin which actually looks to me more like those distressed white-washed bureaus you see in overpriced antique shops, paint cracking. And the little sequined, beaded flower detail is kind of cute. The silver spike heels are too much. Steve actually calls these his "Bling shoe." The name alone should keep you away. But they're still strangely appealing. But again, not for a woman like me. I wouldn't wear them but maybe she would wear them with a shiny black short skirt and white silk top. Some "bling" on every body part.
Buy yourself a pair!
Buy me a pair of shoes!

hello! i am so incredibly envious of you!!! you're able to get magnificent shoes by kenneth cole and the likes at prices like $15!! where i live (singapore), a pair of mr cole's shoes would set me back $100 at the very least. gosh. if you actually convert it to singapore dollars using the exchange rate, US$15 should only be $26.25 in my money. how unfair the world is. the only way i can satiate my shoe fetish is by religiously visiting your site, so keep posting dahling! God bless.
