McQueen armadillo shoes for $25? YES

09 May 2011

To celebrate the MET’s Alexander McQueen retrospective, Savage Beauty, the good people behind the exhibition have released some AWEsome replica McQueen armadillo shoes at a bargain-tastic price of $25. Totes amaze, yah?

Now, there is a SLIGHT hitch here, in that you’ll need to be able to squeeze your feet into a 10cm high resin ornament order to join Gaga and Daphne in getting any wear out of the iconic design. But if that’s no obstacle, then consider yourself a VERY lucky person who owns pair number 22 of Armadillo shoes (the design never went into production, so there are but 21 precious samples currently in existence).

At Grazia Daily, though completely dedicated to The Cause of fashion, we are currently mulling over other options for our mini-armadillos – Barbie shoes? A micropig accessory? – but if you’ve already made up your mind, you can order the shoe by clicking here.

(FYI, the ornaments are currently "temporarily back ordered" which we guess is museum-speak for "out of stock’" Double boo.)
