Long live McQueen! The first 2 pairs of shoes at the top were from the late, great Alexander McQueen (R.I.P). He introduced us to this hoof like shoe in late 2009 for the SS10 collection. Soon after, Christian Siriano designed the next set of shoes (4 total) shown here for Payless this year. They sold out quickly and bloggers were scrambling to find a pair online - me to no avail. This design was a little less hoof like, and more claw like which seems more wearable - and a very reasonable price. AND NOW I find the last little beaut from Iris Van Herpen - perfection - but of course they are... they are completely out of my budget rolling in at a little over $1200.00 if I remember right. Perfection has a price - I guess :) I will continue my quest for a little hoof for a little loot.
