Today: Rockstud magic

Here's some happy snaps of the shoes that adorned my feet today.  Finally I am the proud new owner of the iconic Valentino Rockstud sling backs.  I literally can't believe how cool these are in real life and how comfortable they feel. Who knew anything with a heel could feel this good! 






I thought they would be too over the top and was apprehensive about the quality, particularly whether the studding would look flimsy or cheap. This had stemmed from the one bad review I had read and well... even one negative opinion tends to stick with you.  I'm glad to have been pleasantly surprised and to have fallen so deeply in love with the quality, pyramid gold studding and multiple straps.  Some how all this chaos really works.  I hang my head in shame for ever questioning the design genius that is Valentino.

  3. They're amazing aren't they!!!! Being comfy is an added bonus! I've been on the hunt for a size 37 in black for much too long now. Settled for the cameo but the black ones have stuck with me since.

    1. I've seen them in the all red version and the black calf-hair version (on Netaporter) which I love! I can't believe how quick the rockstuds sell it's insane.

  8. Oh, these heels are absolutely stunning! Congrats with this iconic pair of heels! I am going to pretend that I did not see them, I am so banned in the shoe department until next year... and am already drooling over some Jimmy Choos, so definitely no Valentinos for me... Enjoy them in good health Mandi! xx Kayin

  14. Those shoes are a.ma.zing. Lady, I hope your wearing those babies in wind, rain and snow, because I would (on second thoughts, that would totally destroy them...but they should be worn!), I mean, they're Valentino...

    I'm forever jealous and bow down to your stunning shoes. You have excellent taste :)
