Alaïa’s shoes arrive in a leather case reminiscent of an antique trunk filled with hidden treasures, so it’s obvious there’s something really special inside. One of the house’s most-loved styles (Beyoncé has them) these leather boots have been crafted in Italy and set on a 135mm stiletto heel. Wear yours with midi skirts or jeans – a black pair will make your legs look even longer.
