Step Into Studs

Now that we’ve already covered our favorite flat espadrilles of the season, we can get down to business in discussing a slightly—er, significantly—more vertical option. From the true shoe sage, Christian Louboutin, comes the Cataclou Wedge Sandals, a pair so pretty they have us counting down the days until spring.

Designed in striking white leather with rope soles and gold-tone pyramid studs throughout—psst: there is also a tan silver-tone version—these head-turning beauties will act as the cornerstone in one’s vacay-minded wardrobe. Clocking in at a whopping six-inches tall, they present plenty of lift while remaining easy on the feet thanks to their wedge structure. Smitten with their style but determined to stick to your New Year’s budget plan? No problem! Simply scoop up Michael Antonio’s Wedge Sandals to capture a like-minded look!

Availability: Christian Louboutin Cataclou Wedge Sandals ($695, 310.247.9300). For additional information, visit Christianlouboutin.com.
