Leather and lizard and snakeskin (and suede) oh my! After years spent honing his skills as creative director for Coach, Reed Krakoff knows a thing or two about shoes—which explains why these mixed media sandals from his eponymous line make me melt. The striking shapes and vibrant color blocking are inspired by the Krakoff’s appreciation for artists like Rachel Whiteread and Mark Rothko, and each pair is signed by the designer himself. I don’t know whether to slip them on my feet or hang them on my wall.
