Have you ever just been walking down the street and something just jumps into your peripheral view and stops you dead in your tracks? This is what happened to me while I was walking past Geox on 34th Street. In the window was the gorgeous Empire State Building Shoe. I’m not sure how I missed seeing these breathtaking beauties as I am frequently in that area but I’m happy my eyes (my feet will surely follow soon) got to finally see these. The 5 inch heel (made from rhinestones) is a replica of the world famous Empire State Building which is right across the street from Geox’s 34th Street location.
The Empire State Building Shoe, which retails for $230.00 comes in three styles/colors in New York – the Animal Print Peep-Toe, the Black and Silver Sequined Patent Leather (both shown above) and Pink Sequins (which sometimes looks blue and purple in the light). I was told the shoe is available in other colors but only in other countries (ooh the possibilities). As you will see in the video below, the Empire State Building Shoe comes enclosed not in a shoebox but in a back and silver briefcase fitted with molds of the shoes dressed in black satin – doesn’t that sound so incredibly sexy?
Unfortunately the shoes cannot be purchased online, only in store but with a beauty like this, you should actually hold, touch and enjoy every fabulous every inch of it. Happy Shopping Ladies.
An interesting fact, the name Geox is Greek even though the company is Italian – Geo means Earth and the letter X stands for the technology element. That technological element being they create innovative and revolutionary shoes that breathe.
