A line travels up the heel and wraps in a delicate ankle “t” as two buckled straps hug the top of the foot. Complemented by a pointy toe, this sandal casts a sensual summer silhouette.
Gianvito Rossi is a Milan-based Italian shoe maker who creates luxury women’s footwear that is simply beautiful. Not for those with a fear of heights, his shoes take confidence to wear but are to many, the pinnacle of women’s heels today. From demure stiletto pumps to strappy sandals, all of his shoes are made in the finest materials from snakeskin to calf suede to the highest-quality leather. And like many world renown women’s shoe designers, his shoes are not made to look (or be) “comfortable” – they’re made to look AMAZING. The fact that their subtle leather and meticulous fit make them as comfortable as stilettos can be, is the icing on this cupcake.
Carey Black Leather Pointy is insanely gorgeous. With bare legs on a summer evening or with French seam silk stockings on other more scandalous nights, they are impeccably crafted to showcase a woman’s legs in a way that only an Italian designer could understand. The covered toe means that they can be paired with a pencil skirt for work days but the triple strap lends them a sensuality that means they can be worn with more formal attire. They come only in black because that’s the most tasteful color for them.
As my good friend eloquently put it, “Carey is so hot I want to eat them.”
