Hold up

I've been looking at black ankle boots and other flat classic shapes a lot lately as those represent the core of my closet, and are the ones that are quickly getting walked into the ground. Going forward, I really want to be more mindful of the quality and craftsmanship of the shoe and not simply buy because I like it now and it's cheap (so guilty of this). I don't own any Robert Clergerie shoes, but I'm really attracted to some of the square heel shapes he's doing. Too bad all the ones below are $600 and up, but I've heard Clergerie shoes are made well, so it's probably worth the investment.

This selection is great. It's so hard to find interesting flatish shoes... but they are pricey

at yoox.com for a great price but they were way too wide for my feet.
I have to say though, i have found it close to impossible to find a pair of gladiators/sandals for this summer, that are to my liking.
