Plexiglass Heel Boots
The Limited Edition 003 boots are made for walking and dancing. Perfect in the softest buttery nappa leather for those cooler nights and days. The elasticated sides are perfect for slipping on with ease and provide a minimal, clean line silhouette. The transparent 10cm / 3.9in plexiglass heel is so clear it almost looks as if there is no heel at all - a beautiful illusion. The arch of the soles feature a signature Sophie Cox silver metal logo. Handmade in Italy.
The boot has been inspired by historic haute couture ateliers, which are often referenced in Helmut Newton’s photographs, in particular the iconic image of Catherine Deneuve in Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Le Smoking’ Tuxedo. Elements from tailoring are used in the design of the collection. Tailoring has been used as an art form in the sense that tailors believe in making personalised clothing, statements of fashion, for the individual. They tend to mimic the body whilst at the same time improving and idealising it and this is what The Little Black Shoe is all about. The edginess of the sculptural plexiglass heel is a fantastic detail that catches the eye creating an illusion on the form of the shoes.
