These simple and stunning sandals by Azzedine Alaïa are an exception…the shape of the shoe is really great, especially the sensual curve of the leather section in the back. I love the thick straps across the foot because they keep the foot comfortably secure. But I would never pay the full price, it’s more than twice my rent! Luckily, I found these two double-takes:
