Giuseppe Zanotti’s had some wickedly good booties lately, and these gold plaque boots are no exception. Forget metal cap toes – you want full shields. He’s always toying with where to place them, and with this incarnation, they’re front and center. If you catch people staring, odds are they might be checking out their reflections! The mirrored plaques are bolted on for battle (actually, velcroed on – shh!) and the heels? Full metal. These pointed toe shoes are for days (and nights) when basic black booties just aren’t good enough to answer the call of duty. Available on Luisa via Roma for $1,450.
