Meet the modern fashionista’s equivalent to the glass slipper, the crystallized Rockstud slingback heels by Valentino.  The signature Rockstud style became huge after being introduced in Fall 2010.  They marked the beginning of a more edgier Valentino, a large change from the feminine, ladylike style of the original Valentino line.  There has been dozens and dozens (hundreds?  thousands?!) of variations of the Rockstud shoes, from flats to kitten heels to stilettos.  I own two pairs (one black and one in “poudre”), and I have to say, they are super sexy, comfortable, and also make every outfit look fashionable.

These in particular caught my eye, with crystallized leather and pyramid studs inlaid with pave crystals.  They would be the perfect complement to an evening gown, or paired with a feminine mermaid skirt.
