I recently got a hold of a pair of shoes I just have to brag about. They’re the kidskin low-heel halter from (SPLURGE ALERT!!!) Manolo Blahnik in the very popular “Carolyne” style, and I love them! These slingbacks, of a smooth deep navy color with a toebox that comes to a soft point, are sleek and sexy, yet versatile enough for any professional woman to carry from day into night.
As you all know, I’m all about mixing fashion and comfort, and the Carolyne is no exception. The shoe is made of extremely soft calfskin, so in addition to being of extremely high quality, the material is expandable and is porous, allowing your feet to breathe. The shoe has a low heel, and at two inches, is wearable for six to eight hours at a time. The most exciting part for me is that the shoe is cut low along the sides, so it fits wider feet!
The Kidskin Low-Heel Halter is available at Bergdorf Goodman for $575.00. The site warns that the shoe runs a little small, so be careful to buy one size up.
For those who are not able to splurge so much on this pair, Bandolino has a wonderful alternative called Inspired. It’s a comfortable sling back with a three inch heel, and is on sale for only $29.99. Is that a steal or what?!
