Speaking of extreme footwear, Refinery29 just came out with their own list of jaw-droppingly amazing shoes in their Trends report the other day. As expected, exquisite creations from high fashion labels like Giuseppe Zanotti, Alexander McQueen, Nicholas Kirkwood, and Charlotte Olympia (to name a few) made the cut, but a good few accessible brands like Nine West, Zara, and NastyGal were also included.
Yes, you heard that right, a shoe from our favorite shopping site, NastyGal, made it to their list! Now if you’re wondering which, it’s this gorgeous, albeit a little over-the-top, platform sandal called the Nairobi:
Nairobi Platform Sandal, $138
Whoa! What an exotic beauty, right?
It’s no wonder why the Nairobi got Refinery29’s attention. This tribal inspired heel is quite the architectural stunner, from the front all the way to the back.
Besides the obvious ethnic elements and that catchy patterned platform, the Nairobi is also made of vegan leather, fashioned with cutouts, and sprinkled with a healthy dose of beadwork.
While $138 may be a little pricey for a pair of synthetic sandals, the Nairobi more than makes up for it with a whole lot of awesome showstopping appeal. Besides, it does seem like it’s finely crafted so you will get your money’s worth.
