The Lace Up Bootie: Alaia vs. Ann Demeulemeester

Alaia-1,2 Ann Demeulemeester- 3,4 Aldo-5

The lace up heel is everywhere this summer, but my obsession began in 09' with Ann  Demeulemeester's now iconic version. So wearable and so perfect, this is a classic forever shoe that you can still buy today. Alaia makes an equally fine pair, a bit more sexed up with a stiletto heel vs. a chunky heel.  Both pairs are on the top of my "if only I had $10,000 to blow on shoes" list, but until I can check them off that ridiculous list, I will be super happy with Aldo's way more affordable version. I love that they are a wonderful interpretation of both heels. The sleekness and polish of the Alaias in the front, and the tough and chunkyness of the ADs in the back. You could say it is the seriously sexy and unbelievably cool shoe version of the mullet. Or not.
