I’m not the biggest fan of Balmain (I mean, it’s really cool and all, but it doesn’t really live up to its name — a story for another day, perhaps), but I love these shoes. I’m a fringe fan, although 99% of the time, it tends to look cheap. Well, not here.
They are sexy, slightly scandalous, but not over the top. I’d wear them with jeans (both boyfriend and skinny), billowy silk slacks, shorts, or, if I was Carine Roitfeld, with a pencil skirt.
