Sure they resemble the “Highsmith” metallic sandal by A Détacher. Afterall, to copy one’s look is the ultimate form of flattery. And while I do prefer the A Détacher due to the subtleties (white sole and trim on 2″ heel), they simply weren’t available. So when Anthropologie carried these Latigo vintage t-strap sandals with 1″ block heel on their website at a quarter of the price, it was a fait accompli. The silver leather is soft and the finish is rather muted and antique looking, adding to the vintage charm. They run a little longer in the toe area, even after sizing down 1/2 size, but I really don’t mind as I don’t like toe hangover. This is a versatile, simply designed sandal that is cute and best of all, easy on the wallet. It’s like finding a silver lining in silver shoes!
