If you're a fan of architecture, you will love these shoes. They provide construction the likes of which you do not normally see in modern shoes. The toe strap features a metal plate that is dull brushed metal as to add weight and appeal to the strap. The other strap is on the closed back of the shoe that raises high above the rest of the shoe. This zips in the back to maintain the integrity of the back and of the shoe itself. The upper ankle strap is connected to the top of the tall back by rivets and features a metal plate that curves around your ankle. Chunky heels make sure that you're getting the stability that you need while providing you the right amount of weight on your feet. Enjoy wearing these any time you want to show off something different.
