Paris Shoe of the Day: Balenciaga

Footwear designers seem to be favoring form over function for spring ’12, as a variety of shoes with appendages have hit the European runways. At Balenciaga Thursday morning, snakeskin booties featured angular wing-like ankle cuffs and sculptural heel treatments. The metallic sole and squared-off toe give this style a Western flair, while wide, leather wrap-around straps complete the altogether architectural look. Paired with colorful tailored separates — including shorts suits — these highly crafted shoes were impossible to miss.
