I have been looking at these sandals for a little while now. They are by an Aussie designer by the name of Tony Bianco.
They’re being done to death at at the moment, even the shitty online “i have to have it now even if it’s cheap and looks like rubbish” copy fashion stores. But I think these Bianco’s are the best shaped heel I have seen thus far. The rise is 14.5cm or 5″ approx. Now, for a shoe in a retail store, this is fascinating to me. The other styles by other “designers” are lower in the rise and look terrible.
Tony Bianco does not do international orders from their site, but I did urge the store manager to submit an email requesting that head office do something about it. It is rather old fashioned to NOT distribute stock overseas.
It is in the pipeline for next season’s releases. But if you want these shoes – maybe I can help in some way shape or form.
I also made a little movie of them last night.
Initially these were gold. I am not a person who likes gold. I own no gold jewellery. I prefer the silver tones.
It took me about three hours to finish them, as they needed to dry Not bad for a day’s work. The gold shoes were on sale for $90 a pair instead of $189.00. I actually prefer them glossy black. The suede black is not as attractive to me – and for some reason suede is a winter leather in my mind.
