the steal shoes
The Balencies and I have a history. We first met at the Tribune and it was love at first sight. Despite a broken buckle and a few signs of wear from a photoshoot, the $50 price tag made them a steal.
I wore these shoes to pieces. I was in Paris when the heel snapped off. Lauriane arranged to have them repaired by Balenciaga but leaving them in France was painful. Months after they had been posted back I tore through the leather in two different places. It was time for me to let them go.
Last night Kevin took me to Filenes Basement and there they were. I thought they were lost forever. Size 40, brand new and $199… a steal.
