News & Runway


I fell in love with the Balenciaga boot for pre-fall 2008, and was very excited when they reintroduced a longer above the knee version in an eggshell color for Fall (yes there is a difference between the two seasons). The models look so unbelievably tall I’m wondering what a pair could do for my 5’5” frame. 

I have always been a fan of Balenciaga’s unique shoe designs, but could never get up the courage to buy a pair. Primarily because they are usually out of my budget, but also because I have a fear of heights and spend my days walking the uneven streets of New York. I love how Ghesquière pairs them with a soft, flowy dress for a grunge look and then balances a chic mini ensemble to give it an edge factor.

Perhaps my credit card will take a little abuse this coming autumn….
