Fashion has a reputation for sometimes producing not the most practical of pieces. See skirts with 25-foot long trains or jackets that weigh as much as a small child. Footwear, particularly high heels, are one example that people frequently cite. But even the most vertiginous stilettos don’t have anything on Saint Laurent’s newest shoe launch: high heels roller skates.
We first got a glimpse of the hybrid shoes in Saint Laurent’s Fall 2017 Idol preview on Instagram back in February. Furthermore, Teen Vogue points out that Saint Laurent and the brand’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello, have previously experimented with roller skate shoes. We’ve previously seen a pair of more traditional high-tops with roller skates attached. But roller skate heels? Now that is something else.
And these aren’t just your basic pair of black heels. These are proper high fashion stilettos with a graphic print, pointy toe and skinny heel…and of course the addition of white wheels.
It’s reported that the Saint Laurent roller skate heels will set you back $1,995. But besides the price, the big question is what are you going to wear with a pair of designer roller skate stilettos? Here’s hoping Saint Laurent has an answer to that.
