So my obsession with Balmain Spring 2009 doesn’t end, after a long search process I gave up on these Zara sandals that everyone seems to be lusting after. These Balmain-inspired studded rhinestone sandals were practically sold out in 2 days after it released, no luck for me in NYC. I honestly thought they weren’t going to be mine until B got them for me, had my friends help me get it (thanks Tiff and Bruce) and got them sent over this past weekend! These sandals are part of the Special Edition collection featured in their Spring/Summer ’09 ads with Lara Stone rockin’ them! I heard that these shoes were “too similar to another brand” so they had a legal issue and had to pull them off the shelves. I could of told them that haha. Super hot sandals indeed, but a bit pricey for Zara shoes. They cost $169 but I think they’re well worth it, the quality is pretty good- the stones and studs are not flimsy, plus just look at them! I am longing for the warm weather so I can rock them out! If any of you guys go these babies, let me know! So fierce!
UPDATE: For those that can’t find it at Zara stores, there’s a bunch on eBay. Of course the prices are higher but if you’re in dire need of them…go for it! Check the auctions below.
