I have finally jumped on the Valentino Rockstud bandwagon, and once I started I couldn’t stop so I got myself two pairs. The camel pair comes in patent leather with gold studs, and they look extremely glamorous and lush in real life. I can hardly take my eyes off them every time I have them on, and they add a high-end fashion spin to any casual outfit. I also decided to get the special “Noir Rockstud Version” which comes in matte black leather with silver studs as I think I will get more wear out of these. They are much more low key, and look more punk and edgy so they are more wearable on a day-to-day basis for me. Both pairs are truly exquisite and worthy of splurge if you love collecting beautiful shoes. Size wise they run true for me. If you have wider feet I suggest you to go half a size up.
I purchased them here as they work out to be the cheapest for shipping to Australia. Otherwise they are available at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and ForwardForward and each shop tends to stock them in different colors.
