The Nicholas Kirkwood Spring/Summer 2011 collaboration with Rodarte has produced an artistic and sculptural pair of shoes with elaborate detail wood carvings. These gold metal-heeled sandals are texturized with a carved chunky heel, wood-patterned leather, embossed and ruched silk straps, wood patterned leather and a square toe.

The Nicholas Kirkwood for Rodarte gold metal heeled sandals are inspired by Chinese woodcarvings, seen in the shading tones of the wood patterns and stunning textures on the heels. The shoes are stacked sky-high with a 5.5-inch heel and a 1-inch platform, giving observers a structural view of the stunningly detailed carving and embossed scenery from the back and side of the shoe.

At every angle, these Nicholas Kirkwood shoes exude opulence, luxury and pure class.
