Alexandre Birman Strappy Python Wedge Sandals: Too Much is Never Enough

icon

When it comes to snake shoes, too much of a good thing doesn’t exist. It’s probably the endless neutrality, but I can never get enough python. Bring a cork wedge into the picture and you have a look that’s lighter and less serious. Envision this with a palette of paler-spectrum colors – Alexandre Birman’s sandal functions like a white shoe.

Then again, the sensual cross-strap, designed to frame and hug the foot with delicacy, makes it a bit more formal. So you can take this shoe either way. The sculpted 5.5” platform makes for an up-there yet easy gait, and best of all, this is real python. For the price, it’s a total steal. I just spent more on Marni’s printed python.

So why aren’t these on my feet? Python can’t be shipped to California – someone needs to order these for me! Anyway, this is an early-spring shoe available for pre-order to ship in December. Boo! I would be able to wear these now, thanks to the good weather here. Luckily, I have a pretty solid collection of python sandals to keep me satisfied for the time being. At Saks Fifth Avenueicon for $650.

Pair with: When the time comes, these will look great with Yves Saint Laurent’s surprisingly chic denim clutch. Their trademark hardware and touches of paneled white leather make for a fresh take that has me already daydreaming of spring. Yves Saint Laurent Large Denim Clutch, $695.
