Since Demna Gvasalia took over as Creative Director, Balenciaga has increasingly become known for its recent string of peculiar reimaginations of fashion.

Adding to its Spring/Summer 2019 footwear lineup, the luxury label recently released the Chrystal Mules. A pair of derby shoes converted into slides, the outlandish footwear option features a smooth black calfskin leather construction with a unique cutout heel. The removed portion of the shoe reveals the red leather insole and interior of the once formal wear item. Elevating the Chrystal Mules is a 20mm arch sole unit adorn with crystal detailings at the rear.

Priced at $950 USD, Balenciaga’s Chrystal Mules are available now at balenciaga.com.

In case you missed it, Palm Angels and Suicoke’s Patch Slider Sandals recently released in a “White/Green” colorway.
