You know those shoes that just make you stop right in your shopping tracks. Ya, these Derek Lam Tate open back booties were one of those pairs for me. Like I just stopped and stared at the screen thinking — are these real? Well ladies, they are, and they’re fabulous from every angle.
There are so many things about this shoe that take it to such a level of design that blows my fashion mind. The perfectly pointed toe that isn’t too pointy go quickly go out of style. The forrest green croc-embossed calfskin leather (drool). The fact that it’s a slingback makes it perfect for spring. I love the linear quality of the seams in the leather, and of course the stacked heel that tapers down. I love a chunky heel or wedge (way easier to wear all day long) that is tapered down so you don’t get the cankle effect. No one wants cankles.
Have I convinced you of these gorgeous Derek Lam booties yet? I’m clearly obsessed.
