I still think these shoes are crazy, but they look better in these pictures than the catwalk.

They have been toned down somewhat from the catwalk/editorial versions.

They are interesting definitely, but I'm still on the fence as to how wearable they are.

I really really want a pair and am trying to sell off some stuff to get the $$. Does anyone know how well they're selling, will I be able to find a pair in about 3-4 weeks?

Also, how much are they? I asked someone at balenciaga a while ago and I know it was a ton but remember exactly.

There is a pair on Ebay right now in my size.. but I simply do not have the funds at the moment.

^^ Guessgirl, the pair on Ebay is at around 2k Canadian. I have no idea if that is a reasonable price or not since I don't know the original price of the shoe, sorry!

I think luckyme said they are around 1400 USD?? Yeah I saw those ones are ebay. I still REALLY want these but i'm trying to be as patient as possible because I really think they will end up in the sale here. I know they are at selfridges and I didn't see them at harrods but they are prob. also at harvey nic's so just trying to be patient over here.

they're $1495USD...
that's alot of money for booties...

i asked the sa at neiman's about them, and he said they only sold one pair...
they aren't really a "san francisco" kind of shoe...

indeed caffeine!

Ok, total shamefest over here - I totally had a dream about these shoes last night! I dreamt that I saw them on someone else's feet and I remember asking them about the 'harnesses' but thats all I remember. I lead a sad sad life.

you're obsessed , go get them, you need to "harness" them. I'm sorry, but if I am dreaming about shoes than I must really want them and nothing will settle me until I get them.

Roving Reporter Report: Went back to Selfridges and they weren't there. They had a different sort of brown pair there but they weren't half as nice. The rest of the balenciaga shoes were quite bland. I can't decide whether or not i like that 'tread' going up the back.

hah! I like those, too. yes, probably a little more than the pair with the stirups (maybe only because that pair has suede on and I was just being practical )
Both are gorgeous!

they are...
the suede is definitely impractical for san francisco (the rainy season will be starting soon)...

ashley olsen's got the ankle strap pumps...
