Stella's open mesh gives that "caged" sandal kind of feel in a very feminine way. The mesh runs up the front of the shoe and is interesected with solid pleather strips (Ms. McCartney is cruelty-free and does not design in leather). We then proceed directly to the ankles, where they are finished with an elasticized back straps. A very sexy look with 4" architected stiletto heels. We feel these shoes run one half size small. In a rosy nude.
