The Calvin Klein Sandie: A Seriously Sexy Sky-High Stiletto


Peek-a-boo, do I have a peep toe shoe for you! You know I love me a sexy sky-high stiletto and bless Calvin Klein’s little heart for creating this beauty.

The Calvin Klein Sandie, resting on a 3/4inch platform is a 4.5inch heel weighing in at 10oz. Stylish and sophisticated this heel boasts a narrow peep toe for a little extra sass.

Because a girl’s gotta have options, Mr. Klein has graciously provided us with 9 different uppers to choose from. Choosing between patent or embossed leather will be a real brain teaser, yet a total pleaser.

Each shoe is designed with a padded foot bed and a reinforced heel and platform for your comfort and safety.

Now for the good stuff!

What I Love

It goes without saying that I love the height of this heel. When I slip on a hella-high heel I just feel better about my day. I feel sassier, sexier and damned if I don’t feel slimmer.

That’s the good thing about heels ladies; unlike clothes they never make you look fat! A-freakin-men to that!

Another thing I love about the Calvin Klein Sandie is the quality of leather. You know when you buy cheap patent leather shoes and they look, well, cheap? You don’t have to worry about that with these. Staying true to the CK brand, the patent leather option will look rich and sophisticated rather than trashy and tarnished.

Like I said before, a girl’s gotta have options and although there aren’t many colour options per se, the difference in material make the Sandie a classic pump option.

What I Loathe 

Though I love so much about this shoe, the narrowness is a bit of a concern for me.

Having slightly wider feet than you Barbie dolls out there, the toe width (or lack thereof) makes this shoe slightly uncomfortable. Find it so sexy you’re willing to work for it? Well, you should’ve said so because I’ve got a great DIY on How to Stretch Your Shoes, as well as another handy DIY on How To Break In Your Shoes that will make wearing these bad boys much more comfortable.

A little something else to look out for; the Calvin Klein Sandie runs a little large. To avoid slippage of the heel, order a half size smaller than you normally would. Nothing less sexy than knobby knees and flying heels.

Work It Girl

I am fully aware that we are rolling into Fall and the temperatures have dropped but that doesn’t mean you have to avoid the peep toe. No, no my friend, embrace the chill and woman up!

With everyone back to school after a summer apart, there’s a lot of catching up to do. What I mean, is this is the perfect shoe to wear out to the clubs!

Throw on your hottest mini, a slightly shorter-than-norm trench (for warmth, of course!) and hit the town. Not only will your legs look uber-long but you’ll be so smoking hot you won’t even feel that Autumn breeze.

Though these don’t necessarily fall into the “casual” category, you could always try and tame them down by sporting fitted jeans, a cami and a knit sweater. You’ll look sleek and sexy, just like the shoe.

Now, I realize that not everyone can be a master high heeler like me, so a great alternative for you is the slightly shorter Nine West Danee.

I may have given you permission to go slightly shorter but girl, if I catch you in a 2 inch kitten heel you will swiftly be enrolled in the HHW Heel of Shame! Practice makes perfect so slip ‘em on and get going!

Found something similar that runs a little wider in the toe? Give a care, and please do share! This wide-footed sole sista would be ever so thankful!
