When I first saw these I thought they looked a little odd. I couldn’t work out what the heel and sole were made of and I really couldn’t decide on the decorative zip. It turns out the heel and sole are rubber and I’ve learned to love the zip. Of course, that fact that they’re the ‘Farisa’ from Sergio Rossi helps. If Sergio Rossi wants to use rubber and zips then that’s okay with me, but sadly I don’t have US$693.95 to spend on them.
