I’m back to Kim Kardashian today.
It’s hard to ignore the reality TV star so please indulge me for a bit (like, 30 seconds or so) and you can move on to the next post. Kim attended Kanye’s concert in Sydney last week as a way to support her man. For the event, the bodacious brunette slipped into a pair of form-fitting matching red separates from Balmain and teamed the combo with fancy red lace-up sandals from Alaia. The whole getup was red hot from head to toe, and I must admit, she looked pretty good.

To be honest, what sold me to this outfit were the shoes. Those lace-up heels look really flirty and flamboyant. I don’t know why, but I’m always attracted to lace-up and ankle-tie details. I think they’re really sexy.
Below is a closer look at Kim’s Alaia sandals in orange. They feature studs along the sides, leather lace-ups that start from the toes and run all the way up to the ankles, zipper closures on the back for ease of access, and 4.5-inch-tall heels.

Kim’s Alaia lace-up heels are already sold out online, but you can check out the label’s latest rendition this silhouette over at Net-A-Porter. The new version actually features more details and has a more intricate design. Check out the pair below:
Alaia Studded Lace-Up Sandals in Nude, $2915
There’s a catch, and that’s the price. To own these Alaia lace-ups, you’ll need to spend away $2915, which sounds immensely sinful. If you can afford to splurge, then go ahead and order away. I won’t judge.
Seriously, though, why spend that much when you can get the same look from a pair of Aquazzura sandals that will set you back for as low as $695? True, the “Amazon” from Aquazzura won’t have the intricacy, the studs, nor the fine details, but from a distance, they’re just as fancy. Would you agree?
