Real vs. Steal – Alaïa Leather and Stretch Sandals

by Irina on February 28, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 28, 2014. Scroll down to see the new adds.

I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at NET-A-PORTER (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it can’t be these ones.
