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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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

    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
