I don’t know about these shoes. These are sandals from Diego Dolcini, hand-made in Italy, with a zip-back, a 4-inch stiletto heel, Swarovski crystals, and this huge pleated fan across the front. I can’t tell if they remind me of an oyster hiding pearls, a peacock flaunting its feathers …… or a race-track patron wearing a hat that imitates a peacock flaunting its feathers. It’s a little too much I think.

If you were interested, you can sacrifice next month’s rent at Neiman Marcus (of course, it would be available at Neiman Marcus) for $2,445. What do you think of these sandals?
