alexander-mcqueen-ankle-boots.jpgAlexander McQueen's super-high ankle boots have set the tone for a dramatic and decadent season, and the 'Robin' style pictured above right is one of the most hotly-tipped footwear pieces for A/W 2011. Of course, the glamour comes with a price, and in this case it's as steep as those slender heels.

Miss KG have done a great job of getting the look, however, and we're loving their 'Adelia' style in red; a similarly-shaped platform shoe boot with a curvy heel and just the right shade of red-carpet red all over the body. We have it on good authority that this shoe shape will see you right through the season, so this is a fantastic and wallet-friendly way to get there.
