We spotted Olivia Palermo at the See by Chloe Spring 2014 presentation held in New York City just yesterday. The ultra-fashionable socialite arrived at the event in an eclectic mix of separates finished with a Chloe purse and some exquisite pair of heels we couldn’t take our eyes off of. The shoes were seriously beautiful. They looked like cage sandals, except the straps were delicately curved and refined. And while we can’t say the outfit she put together was one for the books, her footwear choice sure deserved a standing ovation.

Olivia’s gorgeous red-bottom sandals
Sigh. Aren’t they super pretty?
Yes, they are from Christian Louboutin; those red bottoms are a dead giveaway. The sandals are called “Zigouwi,” and they belong to the designer’s fall 2012 collection.
Just to give you a little bit more info, the Zigouwi sandals are made of calf leather and feature 100 mm heels. Olivia’s pair comes in a stunning reddish brown color called Havane, but Louboutin also produced a black version when he launched the style last year.

Sadly, the Zigouwi sandals are sold out everywhere. If you’re lucky, you can find a pre-loved pair in your size on eBay. Of course, that would be like wishful thinking because who would want to part with such a beautiful set of heels, right?
In case you don’t mind grabbing something similar (and a lot less expensive), you can try the Belle by Sigerson Morrison Ola Sandals instead. They don’t come in the reddish brown shade, but they are available in classic black and nude. And the fact that they’re on sale is always a plus.
