Shoe Lust: Maxine

The caged sandal/bootie/shootie trend has been circulating the shoe circles for a while now.  While there's been quite a few styles that have caught my eye, most of them weren't designed for a wider foot. However, the Ros Hommerson Women's Maxine Pump could potentially fit the bill for a fashion forward style that comes in my *real shoe size* (I'm a 6.5 wide or 6.5 C/D but I often size up to a 7 because wides widths that don't look like old lady shoes are extremely hard to come by).  The buckles have form and function - the matte gold finish adds a slight touch of bling and the buckles allow you to customize the fit of the shoe to your foot.  I also appreciate the back zip on the shoe for quick on-and-off accessibility.  The Maxine retails for $115.85 by Ros Hommerson at Endless.com and is available in black leather and taupe nubuck.  I think the black leather would look great with a pair of skinny jeans or a dress and then pair it with matte black tights in the fall with a fitted black ponte knit miniskirt and a relaxed sweater.  I haven't bought these yet but I'm definitely eyeing them even for the sake of shoe eye candy.  At least it's non-fattening, right?
