If you're anything like me and fell head over heels for Balmain's gorgeous sparkly stunners on the Spring 2009 catwalk - but are also like me and could never afford to own them (bar taking out a mortgage in order to do so) - then you might be pleased to hear Aldo have done a sort of hybrid of this shoe with a little bit of Christian Louboutin for Rodarte (Autumn/Winter 2008) thrown in for good measure.

Looking at them on Aldo's page, you might think "meh" but check out how Rumi's wearing them, and I assure you, you will change your mind. They're $125 from Aldo in the US.
