3.1 Phillip Lim Wallace

I have never been a fan of wedges, creepers, or monk strap shoes, but somehow this flawless hybrid by 3.1 Phillip Lim made me see perfection in a different light. I have never even once considered wearing anything remotely close to this, but after seeing them styled in a few Totokaelo and La Garconne photos, I quickly became enamored by the glossy leather, heel height, and perfect detail of the black metal clasps that replace the typical buckles from monk shoes. While they're completely out of my comfort zone, I am ready to embrace them full-heartedly. It will also be nice to try something new this year.
