shoes of epic glory

Shoe Gaze: Nicholas Kirkwood Satin Sandals

Forget diamonds — a disco ball “on the soles of her shoes” will do just fine, or so Nicholas Kirkwood’s spring collection seems to suggest, with a gum-ball-sized Swarovski crystal disco ball wedged between the heel’s stem and pitch. Their lustrous blush satin, offset by the strip of black suede running across the toes, makes these shoes appropriate only for the most spectacular occasions.
