Bottega Veneta butterfly shoes

Bottega Veneta embossed Mary Jane platform pumps >>

'Epic' is the first word that springs to mind when looking at these Mary Jane platform pumps, a work of footwear art from luxe Italian label Bottega Veneta. A label with particular flair for texture, its heritage is evident in the intricately embossed butterfly print that runs throughout the shoe from uppers to those generous platform soles - and the theme is picked up once again with a beautiful red and black applique leather butterfly at the toe. 

Definitely not for those suffering from vertigo, the shoes measure up at a lofty 5.5 inches including both the platform and heel. They are, in fact, disturbingly similar in structure to those infamous heels that toppled Naomi Campbell at the height of her fame at that fateful 1990s Vivienne Westwood show. But what a joy they are to behold!
