Double-Take: Giuseppe Zanotti Chain T-Strap

I’m obsessed with all of Giuseppe Zanotti’s edgier styles. Because no matter how clunky or over-done heavy details can be on some designs, he always finds a way to implement them in a way that makes the shoe modern, sophisticated, sexy and cool all at the same time. I love this chunky chain detail, it really turns the shoes into a statement piece.

Double-Take: B Brian Atwood Linscott

B Brian Atwood Linscott (6pm
If done nicely, a shoe designed with mesh can look really cool. The Linscott pump by B Brian Atwood is a great example of a beautiful design using leather and mesh to create an illusion of floating elements. I love the perfectly straight heel, the delicate ankle strap, and the leaf-like details. I’m not sure how strong the mesh is, but this particular style looks like it’ll hold your foot securely. The price has been steadily dropping on 6pm (they originally retail for $450), which is actually good for those who’d prefer the real deal, but in case you’d like a more budget-friendly version, check out these from Anne Michelle:
