Double-Take: Alexander Wang Aminata

I love seeing shoes in a bold, striking hue. Combine this with a sleek design and you’ve got a winner. The Aminata heel from Alexander Wang has a rather simple silhouette, but the crocodile texture really makes the red color pop. You can get these at Farfetch and Barney’s Warehouse.

This shoe stands out from others with it’s modern style and stunning color. Unfortunately, it’s sold out, not to mention out of my budget. After a bit of searching, I came across a version by Vince Camuto:


The Oljera by Vince Camuto doesn’t have quite the same shape as the Aminata, but they’re both very striking. I love the double buckle detail at the ankle. I only wish they had a black sole, because the contrast between the upper and sole would look great when walking. I have several Vince Camuto shoes and they’re all extremely comfortable…maybe these will find their way into my closet soon. They’re available at Revolve, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s.
