    Default Fendi Tulle Platform Sandals

    I've never really been a fan of Fendi shoes. It's not that I don't like the brand, or that I didn't like what was out there, it's just that nothing ever caught my eye. That is, until now. Fendi has really been impressing me lately with their new shoes, and they have incorporated tulle into their latest collection.

    Their runway shoes were out of this world amazing, but, even for me, impractical. My favorite are the Tulle Embelished Suede Sandal. 6.5" heel with a 1.5" platform. Priced at $1,195, they're priced for their beauty and runway aspect. They are blush suede with tulle, and an acrylic resin platform and wooden heel. These are sold out everywhere, which I think is because they are absolutely stunning.

    So, if you love the tulle, and you think Fendi is doing some good things with their latest shoe collection, I think I have a good alternative. The Tulle and Suede Sandal is 4.5" tall with a small .8" platform. They look strikingly different, but these are more user friendly. I think the price is a little high at $810 (via mytheresa.com), but they are still quite pretty. Other sites have them listed higher at $900+. These are available in taupe (shown below) and black.

    So what's the consensus on these pretty pairs of Fendi shoes? I feel like if I had the money I would buy the first pair, put them on a glass display, and stare at them all the time. The second pair I would wear all the time. I think they would be perfect dressed up or dressed down. However, I'm not really a fan of the price.

    Another great find Lils (you're killing me posting all these gorgeous shoes)! You are absolutely correct, 1st pair gorgeous, amazing, but NOT practical. The 2nd pair is totally wearable and looks great. Too bad the price makes these definitely out of the question for me.

    I totally agree. If they're retailing for that much, I'd rather spend $300 more and get the super amazing ones!

    I just checked and they're $995 at NM. For $200 more you can get the other ones, which are so much better.

    Kelly Ripa was wearing them on the Regis and Kelly show today, and here she is wearing them at an event. Apparently they're called "Desire".
