A promise has been made. From this moment on, you’ve made a pact with yourself to obtain these shoes, and to wear their luscious, passion red leather in person. Your heart pounds at the sight of the subtle stitching arching over the top of the rounded toe and around the back, and the deep ruby snakeskin cuff that disappears into a V-shaped hem and is dotted with decorative buttons and scarlet contrast stitching. Closing your eyes, you imagine the stacked wooden heel meeting the sidewalk as you strut to work in these pumps, an image so lucid that you can hear the sharp clack and shuffle of each step. You have tons of outfits planned, like the vintage belted A-line dress, textured tights, and sultry fascinator look. You seal this pact by making a kiss-like click on the “Add To Bag” button, culminating this unexpected love affair with this enthralling pair of shoes.
