INSANE Givenchy's from two seasons ago??

I would have never known about these shoes if it wasn't for a very very helpful and wonderful commenter....someone left me a comment about two weeks ago reccomending I check out these Givenchy's on YOOX. I can't find the comment now-but a HUGE THANK YOU to this sweet person.

 I never remember to check YOOX as thoroughly as I should but I certainly will from now on-aren't these insane? Who even knew these shoes existed? I had never seen them before...I guess there are always shoes that don't show on the runway...?
The bulbous wedge heel covered in straps is out of some sci-fi movie's wardrobe. I have high standards for 'crazy' when it comes to shoes but these are up there. They're remarkably comfortable, I wore them on Saturday from morning till night.

They're gorgeous shoes. Strappy to fit in with Summer days, patent black to fit in with Winter nights.

Photo of Ava

Hi Jane, I love your shoes and I adore your nail polish. And hey, Ava wrote this.

Photo of Alice

Yeh for sure love em!!!! Also your cute as nail polish...reminds me of Dexter season one with the ice truck killer! Looks great with the patent black. xx

Photo of Jane

wow gorgeous! they don't look comfortable, but i guess they are! :)
wow i can't get over the straps...crazy!

Photo of ashford

are these your feet? How cute is that nail polish!?!

Givenchy shoes have boasted one of my favourite shoes as well. And you know, there's actually one pair that you had that you posted a long, long way back that I really really loved which I cannot seem to find anywhere :/ Especially because it's a couple seasons ago. Maybe I'll try Yoox out again.

I know this is a crazy request but any chance you could start tagging your posts by the type of shoes? At least by labels, for starters? So that us readers can go back for easier reference. Your site is after all, our seaofshoes as well. :) It would be great so that we can sieve out older posts that we want to show our friends and other shoe-admirers! :)

In any case, your blog is loved - regardless.<3

Killer shoes! Yoox really does have some great stuff, I always remember to check it weekly or so.

Photo of Cafe Fashionista

You're right, they do look like something out of a sci-fi movie - I love the rainbow-colored toes. :)

yeah, pretty amazing.
i was putting a moratorium on shoe purchases for a while, but now i am rethinking the rules.

Photo of amanda

wow, so hot. i'm super envious!

Photo of tanya

nice shoes! very alien!
i second Hui's request to tag your shoes by brand. makes it a whole lot easier for us fans to sieve through your sea of shoes!

Photo of jana

thanks! yours rules too. and those shoes, WOW! the plastic-like material and abnormal shape are really perfect, especially with your toenail polish!! i had a slightly similar pair in high school, they were like black leather and the heel was completely grotesque and of course it was a laughing stock but fabulous nonetheless.

Photo of Limespark

Those sweet candy nails have awesome contrast with the kick-ass shoes. Which I will be dreaming about now.

Photo of Lauren

These shoes are INSANE....I think I may be in love : )

Photo of Laurie

I can't believe you spent $500 on sandals.

They're gorgeous though.

Photo of Mandi

I love your candy coloured toes! You should check out gargantuan green and do you lilac it from OPI...


Photo of Rae

gorgeous! ive seen these shoes around before on polyvore, but always assumed they were dior....anyways, looks lovely on you jane! great investment:D

Photo of NC

during these times i am offended at the money you spend on clothing. it is vulgar.

Photo of luxirare

wowza! you need to go to columbia university or nyu, where you'd fit right in and possibly turn into the next downtown it girl. Uh whitney port can suck it hard. I'm betting on it.
