I cannot remember the last time I bought a pair of heels. Actually, I take that back. It was pre-pandemic, they were square toe Bottega black puffy quilted slides that were too trendy and which I thankfully sold on The Real Real. Now I am ready for a pair of heels, but since it’s going to be cold for a while, something with a closed toe. Something that will look good for years to come since I won’t wear them that often.
These Saint Laurent slingbacks fit the bill. They come in black with a silver toe and you can pre-order the ivory tweed with the black toe (my favorite and also called the Helmut, which I am guessing is after Helmut Lang because they are very very 90s Helmut–I am sure that is why I love them so much). I took the above image from fashion editor Suzanne Koller’s IG as well as the one at bottom, which means eventually they are coming out in black with a gold toe.
