gucci spring 2007 sandals

it wouldn't be a holiday without some shopping thrown in would it? i remembered i REALLY wanted the sandals when i first saw the runway pics, and wished that spring 2007 would arrive earlier. however the sandals were rather expensive back then and i hesitated and everything was gone before the summer sale commenced.

i chanced upon these at a shop called kamikaze in olso, which stocks a great selection of shoes from gucci, lanvin, prada, ysl etc. they actually have 4 pairs of this sandal, all in my size and 50% off!


it also came with a small booklet called "la storia", which was pretty interesting:

and from the runway:

and i don't know why, but this pair of sandals squeak really loudly when i walk! not the kind of attention that i seek! and i also need a pedicure. like now...

  1. these are the best looking sandals ever! I love them. Got a pair in brown myself, now I only wear them sparingly as I am afriad of wearing them out too soon. congrats on your find!:-) I would love to get an extra pair, but nowhere in sight.

  3. why is there a squeaking sound? It could be the metal ring brushing against the leather. Maybe when the leather is softer after prolonged wearing, the sound will stop:-) Mine was fine...no sound at all:-) I love the design. It goes with lots of things!

  7. The leather will soften thru more wear. It never cause me any blisters after the first wear (which is slight only). The leather is good. You will enjoy wearing the sandals!
