UPDATED—> Sandal Boots, the Wickedest Shoes, Ever!

Tis’ the season for sandal boots and there are a lot of contenders this summer.

However, hands down, the Tom Ford sandal boots are the wickedest shoes that I have ever seen. If I had $3,000 plus of disposable income, I would have purchased these heavenly creations too. The best part about these summer boots, is that they are perfect for 20-somethings, 30-somethings and 40-somethings. Yep, finally a trend 40-somethings can actually wear.  Both 40-something style icons Jennifer Lopez and Anna Dello Russo rocked these bad boys and they looked dope!

  10. the guy who makes my sandals did one of these two years ago!!!!

    • Andrea, thanks as always for stopping by and for leaving your comment. Well aren’t we lucky that we have a “guy who makes my sandals” person in your life. I think that’s totally awesome! By the way, what local guy? I remember that we visited a leather store in Montego Bay during my last trip… I can’t say for sure why these are so popular this year, but its a known fact that designers get their inspiration from “local” artisians. (-:

  11. YES…the Tom Ford’s are breathtaking and bankbreaking, but I would love to own them. I am going to watch for the Summer sale at Macy’s to see which one of these styles I can buy. Have you purchased yours already??

    • Hi Primus. Thanks for stopping by the blog and for leaving your comment. Oh how I wish! I think even if these go on sale they will still be over a thousand $$. Neiman Marcus is the only store that listed these online, by the way. Since these are super popular this year, I am hoping and waiting for the Jeffrey Campbell’s of the world to come out with their option. I will post an update when that happens. (-:

      • I looked in my local Macy’s yesterday and none of the items shown were there not even the “look likes”. BTW I am doing a feature this month on young & upcoming Jamaican Fashion designers. . .are you following my blog? I hope to see your comments.

        • Hi Primus. All of the shoes shown here are available at NeimanMarcus.com. Here is a link to the Tom Ford ones http://bit.ly/19zk6WH. I know Nasty Gal also carries these. Here is a link to a few that are available on that site. These are $215.00 http://bit.ly/16BgpRt The studded ones are $255.00 I will update the blog and add the links to the Neiman Marcus site for the Tom Ford shoes just incase anyone else is looking for them. They are really expensive. My sister said she had some gladiator sandals made in Jamaica. I will ask her for the details. One Love. Natasha
