Armored with mirrored gold plates and lined with black velvet and white pearls, Alexander McQueen’s block-heeled sandal would look as beautiful lit up in a museum as it would on your foot. While its price relegates it to our “dream big” board, we can’t help but admire the craftsmanship. Notice the tiny gold troikas that mimic medieval architecture, or the pearl-laden, battle-armor gorget cleverly protecting the pitch of the toes. It’s stunning, to say the least.
