Louis Vuitton Embraces Spring

Spring time is my favorite time of year for shoes. It’s the first season after winter to kick off your boots and slip into something more comfortable. Ahhhh, open toes - much better! Nothing says “spring” better than an open toe sandal; well, nothing except an open toe sandal with feminine embellishment, that is.

Take the Athen Wedge Sandal in Satin and Strass by Louis Vuitton, for example. Vuitton has a knack for taking a classic style and intertwining it with subtle femininity, or in this case, blatant femininity. His Athen Wedge Sandal can not only be described as pretty, but also classy, stylish and even flashy (but in a good way!). I like to think of this shoe as Louis Vuitton’s way of saying “hello, spring!” because everything about it screams that it is ready for the warm weather. This black satin sandal really stuns with a contrasting gold metal wedge heel that is engraved with the LV logo.

Speaking of the heel, it will add four inches to your height, which I might add looks like a welcomed addition as the wedge heel seems to give you a more comfortable walk and stance. The strass monogram flower ornaments adorn the foot and ankle straps, giving a sophisticated feminine touch. The ankle strap also appears to have some sort of black fringe going on, and given my feelings on fringe, this is a delightfully appealing addition to this shoe. The leather sole is padded for comfort and the front ankle strap can be adjusted for additional comfort.

These shoes run in Italian sizes so be sure of what your regular size converts to before ordering. The Louis Vuitton Athen Wedge Sandal is little black dress worthy and a staple for your nighttime weddings, dinners, galas and any other occasion that will give you a reason to throw these on. Honestly, I would even pair them with a black skirt and blouse and wear them to work! For $1,900 you better get your money’s worth and wear them everywhere that you can pull them off! All jokes aside, Vuitton’s Athen Wedge Sandal is the “it” shoe for this spring/summer season and because they are black you can even sneak them into the fall season, as well.

I love a shoe that encompasses everything that a woman’s shoe should be: feminine and pretty with embellishment as well as classic and sophisticated. This shoe is the complete package.
