This is an interesting shoe. A strange arrangement of lucite and black that somehow sort of works, at least in theory. I love the rounded sole that comes to a point at the toe. They've got a very feminine, sleek heel. But of course the detail that makes these interesting is the odd transition from black leather to lucite and back to black leather on the rest of the shoe. I'm glad the slingback strap is leather as the lucite would be uncomfortable. And while I normally don't care for bows, these would look weird(er) without one. They look almost vintage but the lucite pulls them into modern day. I have to say I haven't decided whether I would wear these. I think if I did I might wear a black vintage dress with some Czechoslovakian glass jewelry.
Buy yourself a pair!

They are so pretty, but I'm just not sure how functional they are. I hate the way lucite can sometimes "fog up", it looks gross. And the lucite actually makes them look *more* retro.
