Sooo, those Balenciaga Cut-Out boots. You know the ones I mean. Sold out faster than the plane trip from Australia to Europe (and cost about the same amount as well).
I got my hands on them about a year ago, after selling my second kidney for needed funds (hah) and placing a very quick order with Perth boutique, Cult Status.
After much anticipation, they finally arrived and thus began our complicated relationship. While being extremely beautiful and well made, they are the most uncomfortable shoe I’ve ever worn. After wearing these for no more than 10 minutes, I literally could not feel my feet. I know fashion is meant to equal pain and all that – but seriously – there is no other shoe that I would have put up this level of discomfort for.
Fast forward to the present day, and the boots and I are still together and in a happy relationship. It took no less than 3 or 4 months of wear to break them in, but now they are one of my most comfortable partners in crime. Definitely worth it, since wearing them is like adding rocket fuel to any outfit.
