Robert Clergerie has been my guilty pleasure for years. By that I mean I’ve been guilty of wearing what most would consider “sensible” shoes, and in the process, have sacrificed a bit of sexiness. What can I say? The leather is always baby soft, the ergonomic form hugs your feet, and the soles feel like clouds. I own and love wearing sandals that look very much like these (hey, at least they’re not nurse shoes!), so you can imagine my excitement when I found these sensible and sexy metallic sandals. Yeah, the block heel is a little dumpy, but there’s no such thing as an über comfy stiletto (and don’t let any salesman tell you otherwise). These are still interesting and architectural enough to ensure you fit in with your skyscraping friends. The only real difference is that while they’ll be wincing in pain, you’ll be dancing the night away! And if they’re not converts by the end of the evening, all you have to do is say, “It’s a beautiful night. Why don’t we walk home?” Robert Clergerie silver sandals on shoescribe.com for $695.
