While sifting through this season's shoe offerings on a personal mission looking for the perfect everyday spring sandal, we came across these shoe-sandal-things by Proenza Schouler. Described on the Barneys website as: "Lasercut leather open toe sandal with cut-out detail at instep, three-eye lace at strap and contrast cut patterns," these shoes look like a cross between a men's oxford, a hippie-ish men's sandal, a perforated leather shoe, a slingback, and a work boot. NB: They're women's shoes. Oh, and did we mention they're $995?
