burberry-beaded-shoes.pngChristopher Bailey's footwear from the recent S/S '12 runway shows have now hit the shelves of a few select retailers, and we spotted these beaded high heeled sandals over at Net-a-Porter earlier this week. Obviously out of season, they have a relaxed summer vibe about them; a look that's expressed in part by the generous beading covering the front section of the shoes.

What do you think of that beaded look? We're struggling a little with the fact that it looks much like a shoe wearing a necklace - which can never be a good thing! However, we can imagine the sheer joy of feeling them cascade over our tanned ankles on a warm day.

What do you think?
