We all know that Rihanna is very much into ankle-strap sandals. We’ve seen her in several, such as Celine, Givenchy, and Manolo Blahnik. This month, however, it looks like the pop singer has a new favorite pair. They’re red, and they feature thick buckled ankle straps. Rihanna was spotted sporting them yesterday while leaving her hotel in Manchester. She wore the shoes with loose jeans, a graphic tee, a beanie, and some cat-eye sunnies — not exactly the best mix to go with the heels, but she made the whole outfit look cool nonetheless.

A closer look at Ri-Ri’s sandals
How do you like Ri-Ri’s off-duty style? And what are your thoughts on those hot red heels? Love, lust, or both? They are quite sexy, yes?
They’re actually called the Saint Laurent “Paris” ankle-cuff sandals. Yup, they’re pretty much the open-toe versions of the celebrity-favorite Saint Laurent Paris Escarpin pumps.
What makes this pair different from the usual single-band ankle-strap silhouette we often see in the stores is the tapered and narrow peep-toe front. It doesn’t expose the toes as much.

Sadly, the Paris sandals are sold out online, so you’ll have to try your luck at the Saint Laurent store if you want a pair. However, if you don’t mind grabbing something similar and less pricey, the alternatives below from Alexander Wang and Paul Andrew will easily do the trick. They feature the same cuffed silhouette, and they’re just as stunning. They’re on sale, too!
