You can't help but be captivated by provocative footwear. Whether it's something completely insane or a shoe that's a bit tamer but still riveting. That's my reaction to these Cesare Paciotti Open Toe Boots - I'm riveted - no pun intended. The luxe Black suede boots features silver-tone stud detailing, an almost invisible peep-toe, adjustable vamp and shaft straps (which give it a bit of a bondage look) and a non-intimidating 4 1/4" stiletto heel with 3/4" platform. I'm not surprised at the beauty of this shoe, it's beauty (and the fact that it's Cesare Paciotti) is why I'm highlighting it but then again, what can you expect from this innovative Italian designer.
