A very important shoe alert from your friends at Racked! If you loved the impossibly fierce claw-like heels shown on Christian Siriano's Spring/Summer 2010 Runway, you can now actually buy them at Payless.com for $79.99 each.
Three designs are available; there's the aqua pattern pump, a blush pump with sequined straps, and the marbled ankle bottie with cut-outs. Payless first released toned-down versions of the shoes, but after great shopper outcry for the real deals, they caved and rolled these out. They do come with a warning, however: "Reserved for the most daring fashionistas."
Right now, they are available in all sizes, but we'll see how long that lasts. Direct links to the hotness:
· 'Cut It Out' Ankle Cuff Pump $79.99
· 'To The Point' Blue Printed Platform Pump $79.99
· 'All Done Up' Mary Jane Pump $79.99
