LeAnn Rimes has now become one of those celebrities we can expect to be wearing a pair of noteworthy shoes. At this point, I think it’s safe to say that she’s up there with Gwyneth Paltrow when it comes to fabulous shoe-wearing.
Her recent candid shots at LAX taken just last Sunday prove this. The 28-year-old country crooner was all ready for the beach in a pink romper and a white cropped blazer, but she still didn’t get complacent with the footwear and wore these nearly 6-inches high woven slingback wedges with her summery outfit.
LeAnn Rimes has got on these sliced wedge sandals from Lanvin:
The leather-covered platform on these are over an inch thick while the wood-paneled wedge heels are 5 3/10″ high.
They could’ve done away with the brown grosgrain ribbon woven into the straps but according to the description, that detail supposedly “announces Lanvin design”. Not really sure how true that is but you can get these Lanvin wedge sandals for $1,415.00 at Bergdorf Goodman to find out.
For a lower cost alternative, may we suggest these sandals from Faryl Robin, Rock & Republic and L.A.M.B. No, they’re not lookalikes but if there’s anything to get from the Lanvin sandals, it’s the sliced / paneled wedge heel detail:
Faryl Robin Thea platform wedges in black, $189.00 at Amazon
Rock & Republic Bette Wedge Pumps in black, $350.00 at Amazon
L.A.M.B. Kapono wedge sandals in ivory/natural, $325 at Shopbop
For something that’s a little bit more similar and even a little less expensive, here’s a woven slingback wedge from Sam Edelman:

The platform and wedge heel on this are not only paneled, but are also a mixed and matched combination of stacked wood and cork materials.
We also want to share with you these hot Jimmy Choo sandals that LeAnn wore a couple of years ago paired with a little black dress. How do you like this outfit on a scale from 1-10?
