The decorative rhinestone trim of these elegant evening shoes in black silk satin seems to almost float. Fine fasteners of six metal filaments fix the basic hexagonal form around the low-cut toe cap. The heel is slightly retracted and also covered in satin. The shoe is lined with white leather, the toe caps are lined with white linen, and the outer sole is rendered in brown leather.
