Marc Jacobs Lucite Heels: Yea From Afar
I landed at the Couture section of Zappos, which I confess I didn’t even know existed, and found myself staring at these Marc by Marc Jacobs ankle boots in a beautiful brown leather called “Luggage Kid.” Actually I was staring at their cheerful blocky pink acrylic heels.
Yes they are three and a half inches and no I would never wear them but yes I do have a serious shoe crush, or should I say boot crush. I am going to frame them to hang in my little museum of favorite shoes of all time. And for those women who would wear them, they are 19% off, down to $524.95 (from $654), but only sizes 37.5 and 40 are left.
Here are a few more Marc Jacobs lucite heels.
•The Leather Sling-back Bootie with seam detail at vamp and buckle closure at ankle strap and a four inch amber lucite heel. Color is Bordeaux. Price is $292.50 (down from $585).
•The Knee Boot with Amber Lucite Heel in “Bordeaux Kid” with a 15" shaft and “transparent resin” heel, or the same in “Black Kid” with clear heel. Zappos says these heels are 2", but Shopbop.com says they are 4". (Zappos, if you need a shoe factchecker, call me.)
•The very cool Cashmere Lucite Pump. In Black. Patent leather peep-toes with lucite heel. $780.00 at shoezoeonline.com. The most classic and the most conceptual of all the above. Could pass for standard black peep toe pumps, until you look closely at the heel and see a black stiletto heel inside. Like it’s been preserved in amber!
