Splurge: Alexander McQueen 249124WAHU0 Laced Pump

Alexander McQueen - 249124WAHU0 (Colophony) - Footwear
I find myself a teensy bit personally offended when shoe designers don't bother naming a shoe, settling instead on a stock number to set it apart from its same-season counterparts. But, I'm in a forgiving mood when it comes to these Alexander McQueen 249124WAHU0 pumps.

These stacked-heel, laced-vamp, beige-grey leather pumps from Alexander McQueen are just plain special. The color is fall-perfect, reminding me a lot of Chanel's sell out Particuliere nail polish. Rugged laces, of the kind that you'd normally find on hiking boots, add a little edge (but not too much) to otherwise quite proper pumps.

These Alexander McQueen pumps are definitely a little more fashion-forward than what I'd usually consider in an investment-priced shoe, but I can't see this stylized take on a classic grey pump going so far out of style as to no longer be useful or spawn buyer's remorse. It's gorgeous, and so splurge-worthy.
