Does anyone remember this Spandau Ballet song?
Whenever I see members of the new Streets of Gold collection, this song automatically enters my head:)
If you haven’t seen this collection, the Streets of Gold is meant to be a high-end, signature collection – something made by the gods in heaven’s factory. These are rare stand-outs that are not for the faint of heart. If you own something from this collection, be prepared to turn heads. Don’t believe me? Check them out:
The first pair I tried on were the Queen of the Skies | Dionysus. In truth, I was really hesitant about this collection because the heels – though absolutely stunning – are 4″ high. However, Queen of the Skies | Dionysus was a lot more wearable than I was anticipating. While they’re not an all-day heel, they’re definitely more than just a sitting-around-looking-pretty kind of shoe. Queen of the Skies | Dionysus is quite stable and has a slight platform. I really love the shade of gold on this one because it’s really classy. They’re not something I could put to good use, but I’m sure heel lovers will add this to their collection. Besides, it’s on SALE!
The Streets of Gold collection also has a men’s offering: Imperial | Ian. These are brand new and super sharp looking! Many thanks to FlueDaddy Denny for modeling these. I know a lot of men are looking for something classy that turns heads and Imperial | Ian really fits that need. The black buttery leather is accented with gold near the top and outside the uniquely-shaped heel. Even the most conservative men would give these a try. Below you can see them with the other member of the Streets of Gold, the Queen of the Skies | Midas.
Admittedly, I didn’t like the fit of Queen of the Skies | Midas. It wasn’t as stable and because my feet are so wide, these were a bit pinchy. Then again, I’m not much of a high heels or pumps person. However, for the right person, these are gorgeous. Did you notice the toe cleavage?! Super hot! These are also on SALE!
Our friends at Haight Street shared a few things about this collection. One of the signature things about the Streets of Gold are the soles. The gold you see leaves subtle flecks wherever you walk. It’s how the shoes leave its mark wherever you go. Cool, huh?
I should note that the red you’re seeing on the photos above are reflections of Madame Shirley’s top:) So… Have any of you checked out the Streets of Gold? If so, what are some of your impressions? What would you like to see added to this line? Please post to comments.
For the love of pretty, gold, shiny things,
