Givenchy Leather Open-Toe Bootie Sandals: Afternoon Delight

Leather on cork, natural and neutral; the classic Givenchy buckle and thrilling cutouts. These are a few of my favorite things! This calfskin sandal-bootie crossbreed is the sexiest daytime shoe for miles (which means it will translate seamlessly into after-dark).

Nobody cuts a silhouette like Givenchy. The wide front panel is perfectly relaxed, so you’ll never look fussy, while the exposed toes and ankle-strap – hinting just slightly at bondage gear – is downright foxy.

Revealing your entire heel puts it over the edge (and into sandal territory), but the always-easy element of cork brings it all back down to earth. With a jagged, geometric high-heel that’s covered in leather, it’s got a current vibe. But this brand of cool is basically trend-free, and you can count on it to last for season after season.

Available for pre-order on Luisa Via Roma for $1,200 (for arrival by January 31st).

Pair with: Shake up your neutrals and maintain the edge with Kaufmanfranco’s breezy sandwashed-silk halter neck jumpsuit. On Net-a-Porter for $1,395.
