I’m no LeAnn Rimes fan, but I absolutely love her taste in shoes. She may not be as stylish as say, Olivia Palermo, but you can always rely on her to whip out the best looking footwear to go with her outfits. While in Chicago a couple of days ago, the country singer was spotted wearing these gorgeous buckled suede sandals with skinny denims, a loose top, and a fringe bag. The outfit was alright but the shoes totally made her look fabulous:

The pair is from Pierre Hardy, called the Buckle Fastening Suede Sandals. Details are as follows – upper made of suede leather that features thick buckled straps on the ankle area, covered block heels of about 5 inches high, and inch thick stacked platforms partially covered to make the shoes appear less chunky.
What do you think so far?
If you do the math, you will actually be walking in 4 inch heels – not exactly a comfortable height but if you are “well-heeled”, it will be a breeze:
Of course, we don’t see LeAnn complaining. Given how she loves to wear stilettos and platforms even while traveling, these sandals must probably feel like slippers to her. Now if you want the Hardys, the only place where you can find it is Net-A-Porter; grabbing a pair will cost you a whopping $1285 though…
I know, I know, it IS ridiculously expensive. If you can afford it, go ahead. But if you can’t, here’s what I think you should do – forget about those buckled Pierre Hardys and simply set your sights on these MARK & JAMES by Badgley Mischka Paxton Sandals instead. True, these don’t look anything like LeAnn’s but they are just as yummy, wouldn’t you say? Besides, these T-straps will only cost you $251, still somewhat high but definitely more attainable. You can find the Paxton at Zappos. Enjoy!
