    Default Burberry Twisted Band Platfrom Sandal

    Again, the super tall heel is calling my name. And, I've found a beautiful pair. Burberry Prorsum Twisted Band Platform Sandal.



    Brand new for the S/S 2010 line, this shoe is stunning. From Burberry's website:
    High heeled, almond toe, platform sandal with smooth leather twisted band detailing and leather bands that wrap around the ankle to secure it. The leather insole is branded with the Burberry Prorsum inscription. With a lacquered sole and heel.
    There is a 5 1/4" heel with a 1 1/2" platform. The back of the heel has a zipper for easy on/off. Comes in two colors - black and nude. Priced at $795, they're a little expensive, but these are really amazing and look like art.

    Here are some modeling pictures via addictedtoshoes (shoe-closet.blogspot.com):


    So, for those of you daring ladies, would you wear these?

    BEAUTIFUL! I can't imagine how the leather feels like, it looks so soft. The shoe looks ridiculously sexy too. I'd definitely wear them, but they might make me look like I'm 6''. LOL.

    I love the idea of wearing them with socks, too. Totally totally cute! I heart it.

    I'm 5'8" and I would totally wear these. My problem is that I never have anywhere to wear my tall heels, since it takes so long just to walk to the subway from my apartment. I think these shoes are amazing and I totally want them!

    They're gorgeous!! I'm a shorty (5'2") so I could definitely benefit from the height but I'm not sure I'd wear them. I LOVE heels but these are just way too high for me.

    I think these are AMAZING!!! OMG!!!

    I love the style of these and the color is to die for!!!! I can see how they make your legs look a mile long. You taller girls have no idea how lucky you are. At 5'3" I need a shoe like this to bring me up to your level. LOL

    That being said, I love these. The price isn't any more than another high end shoe and these are great for the summer. I don't know if i'd wear these with socks but they do look cute with them.

    Great find Alex!!!!!

    These also come in satin, also for $795. I'm not liking this version as much:

    I also think Emma Watson looks amazing. She's all grown up! Such a pretty young lady now.

    I'm not a fan of the sock either.

    OK, so first I want to thank Alex for being such a bad influence on me and showing me these shoes!!!! Love you girl, but I'm going to be sooooo broke.

    I went to NorthPark Mall last night at actually saw these beauties in person. All I can say is....they are absoloutely worth what they are asking for them!!!!



    The heel is actually quite tall, but is mitigated by a platform that looks really tall in the online photos, but in person its not that bad.



    The leather is SUPER SUPER soft and feels amazing on your foot. The only complaint is that the soft leather causes your foot to slide a little, so I would recommend going a half to full size down. The shoe does stretch very well, so tightness is not an issue nor is a rough/stiff part rubbing and causing a blister.






    I know I'm sounding like a commercial, but I was really really impressed with these shoes and although they didn't have a size that fit correctly, they did say they could get it. However, the SA did say they were a runway shoe that would only be produced for a very limited time and once sizes were gone...they were gone. Talk about pressure!!! I may save some $$$ and try to see if they still have them, but if you have the chance to try them...GET THEM!!!

    I did also try on another style, similar to these but in a peep toe bootie. Again...amazing amazing! Burberry has won me over with these shoes!

    OMGGGGGGG Stell they are so amazing! They look so good on you, too! And I'm super jealous that you got to see them IRL. Were these at the Burberry store or a department store? I want to go find them this weekend.

    I'm glad I can be such a bad influence I know how much you love nude shoes.
