INSANE Givenchy’s from two seasons ago??

I would have never known about these shoes if it wasn't for a very very helpful and wonderful commenter….someone left me a comment about two weeks ago reccomending I check out these Givenchy's on YOOX. I can't find the comment now-but a HUGE THANK YOU to this sweet person.
 I never remember to check YOOX as thoroughly as I should but I certainly will from now on-aren't these insane? Who even knew these shoes existed? I had never seen them before…I guess there are always shoes that don't show on the runway…?
The bulbous wedge heel covered in straps is out of some sci-fi movie's wardrobe. I have high standards for 'crazy' when it comes to shoes but these are up there. They're remarkably comfortable, I wore them on Saturday from morning till night.

    They’re gorgeous shoes. Strappy to fit in with Summer days, patent black to fit in with Winter nights.

    Hi Jane, I love your shoes and I adore your nail polish. And hey, Ava wrote this.

  5. Alice says:

    Yeh for sure love em!!!! Also your cute as nail polish…reminds me of Dexter season one with the ice truck killer! Looks great with the patent black. xx

  6. Jane says:

    wow gorgeous! they don’t look comfortable, but i guess they are! :)
    wow i can’t get over the straps…crazy!

  7. ashford says:

    are these your feet? How cute is that nail polish!?!

  8. Hui says:

    Givenchy shoes have boasted one of my favourite shoes as well. And you know, there’s actually one pair that you had that you posted a long, long way back that I really really loved which I cannot seem to find anywhere :/ Especially because it’s a couple seasons ago. Maybe I’ll try Yoox out again.
    I know this is a crazy request but any chance you could start tagging your posts by the type of shoes? At least by labels, for starters? So that us readers can go back for easier reference. Your site is after all, our seaofshoes as well. :) It would be great so that we can sieve out older posts that we want to show our friends and other shoe-admirers! :)
    In any case, your blog is loved – regardless.<3

  9. Killer shoes! Yoox really does have some great stuff, I always remember to check it weekly or so.

    i love the heel and they look really comfortable. they look extra cute with your candy colored toes!

  12. You’re right, they do look like something out of a sci-fi movie – I love the rainbow-colored toes. :)

  14. DUSKIN says:

    yeah, pretty amazing.
    i was putting a moratorium on shoe purchases for a while, but now i am rethinking the rules.

  15. amanda says:

    wow, so hot. i’m super envious!

  16. tanya says:

    nice shoes! very alien!
    i second Hui’s request to tag your shoes by brand. makes it a whole lot easier for us fans to sieve through your sea of shoes!

  17. jana says:

    thanks! yours rules too. and those shoes, WOW! the plastic-like material and abnormal shape are really perfect, especially with your toenail polish!! i had a slightly similar pair in high school, they were like black leather and the heel was completely grotesque and of course it was a laughing stock but fabulous nonetheless.

  18. Limespark says:

    Those sweet candy nails have awesome contrast with the kick-ass shoes. Which I will be dreaming about now.

  19. Lauren says:

    These shoes are INSANE….I think I may be in love : )

  20. Laurie says:

    I can’t believe you spent $500 on sandals.
    They’re gorgeous though.

  21. Mandi says:

    I love your candy coloured toes! You should check out gargantuan green and do you lilac it from OPI…

  22. Rae says:

    gorgeous! ive seen these shoes around before on polyvore, but always assumed they were dior….anyways, looks lovely on you jane! great investment:D

  23. Rikki Lane says:

    the rainbow toe-nails are a nice touch and juxtapose nicely with the shiny black of the shoes

  27. Samantha says:

  37. NC says:

    during these times i am offended at the money you spend on clothing. it is vulgar.

  38. luxirare says:

    wowza! you need to go to columbia university or nyu, where you’d fit right in and possibly turn into the next downtown it girl. Uh whitney port can suck it hard. I’m betting on it.

  51. yeah says:

    please girl, think of your poor feet once in a while…higher doesn’t mean better. step it down a notch from time to time and wear flats..otherwise, you’ll be f****ed, when you get older – trust me, my sister has been there, it’s sooo painful. still: those are some badass wedges! :-)

  52. Marion says:

    Crazy about your nail polish !!!! (and shoes too for sure)

  53. Nini Nguyen says:

    The shoes is hot Jane.

  54. jillian says:

    your shoe and clothes spending is ridic! first those killer boots, that kick ass red jacket and now these. i mean, for real!

  55. Kat George says:

    I love them! I have similar ones- They have the same shape and size in the wedge but they are a soft black canvas with tortoise-shell plastic straps. All I can say is sometimes when you step too far into your toes you can roll a little bit too far forward on that curved bit at the front! I’ve never fallen but have looked a little bit uncoordinated when getting used to them! xx

  56. Jessica says:

    AMAZING! So jealous….love yoox!

  57. Barbro says:

    I actually love shoes, but those are just too big for me :O

    They’re great…was watching the 2007 spring show to see them on the runway, did you see the maori ankle boots from that givenchy collection. WTH they were insane – lol

  71. b.a. says:

    “Who even knew these shoes existed? I had never seen them before…I guess there are always shoes that don’t show on the runway…?”
    any “early adopter” of givenchy by tisci—before he became the flavor of the day and everybody and their mother jumped on the bandwagon—-knows about those shoes……..s/s 07 collection and yes they were on the runway!! <3
