3.1 Phillip Lim Calder T-Strap Platform Pump

Oh My Goodness, I want these! They are exquisite!! It’s never going to happen, but a girl can dream.

3.1 Phillip Lim reinterprets the classic spectator pump with several notable twists: equipping it with a platform for added height, a T-strap to secure dipped construction, and juxtaposing textures in addition to colors.

  • Leather T-strap, pointed-toe front with snake-embossed leather shank, back, and heel.
  • Seam defines concealed platform.
  • Adjustable buckle.
  • Covered heel.

I can’t dance them, so maybe that can be the reason I shouldn’t get them. Haha, or the *gulp $850 price tag….yeah, that’s the biggest reason I can’t get them. Again…. a girl can dream. I’m a 38 if there are any wealthy benefactors out there. 😀
