For the observant reader, I posted this picture before, on August 17th, 2011 to be precise. It came with the text ‘so not me, but oh so cool’. Now what I failed to understand back then was that over the years I would grow very (VERY!!) fond of them. Obviously now that they are sold out literally everywhere, I convinced myself I need them.

You see, I always declared I am more a shorts than a skirt person. Fact is that I do love skirts, I just do not have the proper non-feminine shoe to make them more edgy, which is exactly how I want to wear skirts.

I know these shoes are somehow all over the place (that is what happens when they are sold out in stores; they show up on the streets) since they appeared on the runway few years back, but I can not seem to get them out of my head.

This is one of my very few desperate attempts I will do on my blog to find something that is probably impossible to find. So, is there anybody out there that can find me these in a size 38 (or something close to that size) – with either silver or mixed hardware?

ps: Trust me, I have tried eBay, but I refuse to pay more than what they cost in stores. This could be a temporary refusal though. Found them, thank you so so much for all the links and suggestions!

  1. hi Sabrina,
    Ik volg je blog al een tijdje met veel plezier. Echt heel cool dat je succes zich uitbreidt..en terecht! ;) Ik moet wel zeggen dat ik de Tommy H-reclame echt heel irritant vind (sorry!). Ik snap helemaal dat dit lucratieve deals zijn, maar misschien kun je het af zonder pop ups? Heel veel succes verder! xx

    • @Ellen: Dankjewel! Helemaal begrijpelijk, ik zie er ook op toe dat dat zo min mogelijk gebeurt, maar soms kan ik er niet onderuit. Xx

  2. Hey Sabrina, I love these shoes too (pretty much all balenciaga shoes hahaha) but I heard they are incredibly uncomfortable. I think you should get something that’s more recent (not that these are out of style, of course) since there’re always amazing new shoes from the runway every season! :)

  3. That’s weird. I was on Barney’s website 1 minute ago and they had all sizes available. Well, I didn’t actually buy the shoe, but I went until right before check out and it was still sitting there in my bag. Maybe they restocked?
