Double-Take: Casadei Pinup

I’m currently in-lust with these amazing pin-up pumps by Casadei (perhaps a season too late, but that just means they can be found on sale now!). The FW12-13 collection was built around this particular pump and included a rang of silhouettes, including leather netting and ruched leather details. Taking inspiration from pin-up style, the pump was designed to be feminine, romantic, and seductive. I love the dipped front and almond toe; there’s no hint of toe cleavage with these! It’s all about curves of the foot and ankle. I personally prefer the version without the platform (still available on Yoox in black and other colors) as it’s more feminine, but the platform version (in grey here) looks beautiful as well!


A great budget-friendly alternative is the Nine West Aldusa. It’s available on Zappos, Amazon, 6pm in a few colors and prints.
