If I could spend thousands of dollars on shoes, I’d definitely buy a pair of Azzedine Alaïa heels. His shoes are always fierce and edgy and you can see that his designs involve a lot of craftsmanship. The sandals below belong to my Alaïa favorites. They are sold out right now, but they used to retail for as much as $750 which is way out of many people’s shoe budget – including mine.
