From world-renowned design house Valentino comes this set of Valentino Studded Monk-Strap Shoes. As this veteran design house is attempting to reconnect with a younger demographic, the release of these spiky dress shoes is step in the right direction.

The Valentino Studded Monk-Strap Shoes are built for fashion-forward rock stars. The shoe maintains the quality and classic craftsmanship of the traditional monk-strap shoe and adds black studs as embellishment. The shoe hits a sophisticated and fashion-savvy tone with just enough of a touch of punk rocker to make the shoe cutting-edge without going too far. The shoe is subtle enough to wear to the office and interesting enough to walk down the street and straight into the club.

Valentino is working hard to embrace youthful fashion risk-takers, and this set of studded monk-strap shoes looks like a perfect fit for them.
