Alexander McQueen Black Knee-High Wedges: High and Mighty

Somebody’s not afraid to make a statement! For the girl with perfect legs: what better way to show them off than with these stripped-down and laced-up boots? The statement being you not only have a killer pair of stems, you also know how to command a room. And perhaps a whip.

Miles of lacing, scant leather, and a curved wedge don’t make for the easiest thing to put on (or pull off), but for the effect you’ll get, it’s well worth the exhausting effort. That shapely little cutout is the cherry on top of this sexy sundae. But convenience – or lack of convenience – aside, there is clearly another factor in play. Ah, yes, the price. In reality, you’ll get about three wears out of these (unless you just got cast in the theatrical revamp of Priscilla Queen of the Desert), so it breaks down to about $2,200 per spectacular display. On Ssense for $6,595.

Pair with: Counter the intensity of these boots with a sweet, feminine skirt, like Red Valentino’s twill-stretch mini. On Luisa Via Roma for $268.
