Unlike their cloven-hoof boot and literal sweatshirt bag, here we have one of Maison Martin Margiela‘s better gimmicks: when they’re not giving their booties a camel-toe, they have a great way with ankle styles!
As wearable as it is intriguing, these have comfort and interest in spades. Can’t handle a stiletto? Here’s your great compromise. This stacked wedge has a stiletto-shaped cutout, for a sleek effect with the confident stability of a solid wedge. Who knew the lack of a stiletto could look so good?
I have to hand it to Margiela for showing restraint. The reason this shoe works is because it has one funky detail – and only one. Otherwise, it’s just neutral, smooth leather that will go with everything, for an everyday bootie that won’t bore you. On ShopBop for $955.
Pair with: Another basic that won’t bore. McQ Alexander McQueen’s easy crossbody mini-bag comes in smoldering hot pink, so you can get your color fix. McQ Alexander McQueen Amwell Mini Crossbody Bag, $660.
