Wedged sneakers, platform booties, lace-up heels — shoes can no longer be easily categorized by one basic silhouette, but rather have become uniquely crafted sums of their parts. And, leave it to Robert Clergerie to master a new concoction. The coveted designer has dreamed up a never-before-seen blend of amazingness in the form of black, lightweight raffia platform sneakers that still somehow seem fresh and timeless. Just in, and exclusively at Opening Ceremony, the foam-soled kicks are perfect for transitioning into the warmer months (just make sure you've got the $395 to spare before they completely sell out!).
OC Platform Raffia Sneakers, $395, available at Opening Ceremony, 35 Howard Street (between Broadway and Crosby Street); 212-219-2688.
