Blast from Sold Out Shoe Past...

SandraDroolworthy, Shoes

I figured I dedicate today's post to some shoes that have stolen my heart in the past and that I still secretly check up on hoping they get re-released or pop up in a sample sale somewhere.

Now I don't know exactly which collections they came from, I think most of them are from 2009, but I still love them (perhaps even more than some of the new shoes that have been coming out - none of which have impressed me in particular just yet).

Without further ado...

1. The YSL Imperiale

The most "famous" version was the all black suede one (and Jessica Simpson/Dolce Vita made some very similar inspired shoes) but my absolute favourite is this gray with patent and suede combined. Probably my favourite wedge ever and I would kill for a pair. I think they're much cooler than the YSL Tribtoo that have been worn to death by celebs. Don't get me wrong - I like the YSL Tribtoos but I'd take the Imperiales (or the Palais, for that matter) over them any day! Come on, YSL, bring them back!!

2. The Christian Louboutin Maggie

I first saw these on Victoria Beckham (I do love her, I must say) when she was photographed at a Laker's game and swoon... by the time I checked Net-A-Porter they were gone. They did them in a few different colour options but this particular one was the most striking to me. Gorgeous and interesting colour combination, 140mm platform and heel... love!

3. The Giuseppe Zanotti Sculpted Wedge

Now this came in two main versions - the pump and the ankle boot... both of which are absolutely gorgeous.

The leopard print ankle boot was really big with all the fashion blogs when they first came out and it's easy to see why - they're so badass! Architecturally stunning, I love the way the wedge heel comes in at an angle, and the platform is to die for. Walking in these might be a bit of a challenge but hey... I wouldn't mind! The pumps are a bit more tame but the think ankle strap gives them a bit of a sexy edge.

So those are the sold out shoes from the past that I'm still thinking about...

Am I the only one still drooling over styles that sold out from past seasons? *blushes*
