These boots weren’t made for walking. Which makes them an even less sensible purchase; it’s hard to justify investing a serious amount of cash in shoes that might actually reduce your mobility. But just look at how lovely they are…

With an impressively vertiginous stiletto heel and platform sole, Alexander McQueen’s suede bow-detail boots weren’t created for dashing about town, much less spending all day at work. In fact, they’re not really suited to any physical activity – unless you count looking show-stoppingly gorgeous.

In soft black suede with oversized grosgrain bow detailing, these boots are typical of the the glamorous, theatrical style that McQueen excels at. We’d wear them to dress up a pair of slim-fit jeans, or perhaps with an embellished mini and simple sweatshirt. And preferably when minimal walking is required.
