Salvatore Ferragamo Green Crocodile Kitten Heels

I love this! The heel and pointy shoe...aweeee......perfect.......
Salvatore Ferragamo and the label’s cool 1970s-style logo are vintage-store staples: few insoles are as recognizable as the one that lines the brand’s shoes, and even fewer shoes feel as stylish and nostalgic, still. Knowing this, the Italian house recently consulted with its archives in Palazzo Spini Feroni in order to reintroduce a select group of crocodile kitten heels — sharp-toed burgundy pumps, slate sling-backs, emerald and chestnut T-strap Mary Janes (that also come in a maroon ostrich skin) and Regency-era lace-ups — with its prefall collection. “What I want to create is accessories and garments that will never lose their allure,” says Ferragamo’s design director Massimiliano Giornetti, “that go beyond trends and can be used for years and years.” True to form, these low-riding lady heels don’t look a day over 20-something when worn with prefall’s chocolate pleated croc miniskirt or disco printed jumpsuit. “What really can be defined as ‘classic’ will never lose an intrinsic message of modernity,” Giornetti says. So spare them the arrivederci‘s, please.
Salvatore Ferragamo green crocodile kitten heels, $4,500. At select Salvatore Ferragamo boutiques; (800) 628-8916.
