Shoe Gaze: Balenciaga’s Resort Chain Track Heel

With loops of slick, shredded vinyl leather festooning the toes and a gold coil wrapping around the ankle, Balenciaga’s chain track heel from Alexander Wang’s first resort collection is a statement shoe — the kind you’d style your entire outfit around. Attached to the futuristic gold coil is a fifties slingback heel, directly inspired from the house’s precious archives from that time — resulting in a perfect mix of past and present.

Balenciaga Chain Track Heel, $1,415 at Barneys.
