who designed these? they are perfect. if i they were mine, i’d never need another pair of shoes ever. actually, i’d like to alternate between barefoot and these for the rest of my life. are they balenciaga? the studs look like balenciaga ones. i found them in this post from the selby from 2009 that was shot in (of course) julia roitfeld’s apartment. my favorite pair of sandals is this flimsy pair of black leather gladiators with silver studs that i bought in 2003 from steve madden that one time a vogue editor complimented me on in the conde nast elevator, but they pale in comparison. come to mama, i’ll say if we are ever united. what a sweet day that will be.
