Item of the Day: Akida

AkidaItem of the Day: Akida

Yowza! Check out those heels!

When it comes to statement-making heels, these shoes by Akida certainly make a bold one, taking the spiked trend to whole new level. You wouldn’t want to put your finger between the sharp spikes in this heel, which resemble an animal trap! Maneater, perhaps?

Milan-born Carlotta Casoni, a graduate from Parsons School of Design, debuts her first collection for Spring/Summer 2014 in New York and Milan.  Of course we love the black version of this bootie, but it’s also pretty fierce in the soft mint green offering.

And yes we stuck our fingers into the heel and yes they are very sharp!

Sorta perfect that Akida means “spike” in Greek, no?

Retail: $750
