New Lust: YSL Tribute Platform Sandals

I found a new love in YSL Tribute platform sandals. The story started when I visited YSL boutique with a gal pal but ended up trying on this pair of lovely at the urging of the most insistent sale associate. What was a gal to do when the nice SA gave me my size, right?! It would be rude to hurt her feeling. *wink*

I am actually still on a hunt for a pair of savvy red shoes. So far I have not much luck in the red department, although I have had luck with every other colors. Of course when I saw a pair of deep red Tribute platform sandal (might I add on sale), I made a beeline for them. I was slightly hesitant because of the heel height and wooden platform. The Tribute heels are 4 inches without the platform. In reality the heel is closer to 6 inches. I was convinced I would fall very ungracefully on my face and break my ankles in the process. However, I was wrong, even the wooden platform didn't weight as much as imagined. These super high platforms were solid and easy to wear. I was able to sashay across the floor. Imagine that! The camel color from Fall 2009 collection retails for $760 and the deep red is on sale now. I forgot to check the sales price but they should be at least 50% off now. What do you think of super high heels?

*For the first time in my life, I know how it feels to be about 5'10"..... *smile!*

  9. Those shoes are gorgeous but too high for me- I'd tower over all my friends and my bf! I bet the platform is pretty comfy though.

  13. Oh droooool! It's funny, when I first saw the pic I was thinking "perfect height, but they look really difficult to walk in." I'm wearing a pair of 4 inch Frye platforms that have a similar look and they are clod-hoppers (soo heavy- but so pretty)... now if only I can save up to be 5'9 ;)

  15. these are beautiful!!! amazing!!! unlike you, i don't think i'd be able to walk well in them, and i'd be about 6'3" in them, so i think i'll have to skip them! ;) but they are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Those are FABULOUS!!! I'd be able to walk in them no problem, I'm a heels pro... but I think people would run screaming because they'd make me about 6'7"

  32. I didn' buy the shoes because I already purchased 2 pairs of shoes this week already so I can't..... I am sorta thinking about the red Tribute still though. I want to go back to try them again b/c even though they are very comfortable I don't know how often I will wear these 6 inch heels.

  37. Hi there-they look adorable, maybe you need to get the red ones if they're on sale!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love super-high heels, but only on girls who can walk in them. I feel so bad for girls who are wearing stunning shoes, but are hunched over to try and maintain balance.

    And, yes, I think you should splurge on these. ;-)

  39. I do love the most high ones!
    Fantastic!!!

  40. I would totally fall on my arse but I love them on other people. 4 inches is about my limit.

    ReplyDelete
