It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s Alexander Wang’s Caped Sandals

It’s a bird! It’s a plane!

No, it’s just these caped sandals from Alexander Wang:

That’s actually a “flap overlay” covering the heel cap but “cape” is a much better way to describe it, don’t you think?

The description also says that it’s detachable but I’m looking at these pictures and I can’t for the life of me figure out exactly how that’s done. I’m not sure I would want to take the cape off either if I did own a pair of these shoes. I mean, isn’t that essentially what you’re paying for when buying these shoes? If you take the cape off, then they’re just regular metallic ankle strap sandals. And unflattering ones if I may add; I’d rather go for the cuter and much cheaper Jeffrey Campbell ‘Sabina’ sandals (available at Amazon) if my intention was to go for the ankle strap sandal look.

Here’s how these caped sandals look like going down the Alexander Wang Fall 2011 Ready-to-Wear runway:
