Ever since Nicholas Kirkwood, the London-based shoe designer, opened his very first store in the U.S. (in New York!), an impressive list of clientele has been unable to stop raving about his heels. Albeit not the most comfortable, Mr. Kirkwood has made his "artful scribbles" come to life, with skyscraper rectangles, space needles, even a wavy indentation at the bottom of some of his shoes. Mr. Kirkwood's shoes recently made a grand entrance at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show of 2012 - donning models in some of his most feminine, daring yet playful designs yet.

Additionally, the detailing of his heels is what makes his brand so iconic - adding crystal balls and a bow in the front of the heel makes it both playful yet sexy at the same time. His four-figure price tag is made justifiable by the construction of a sky-high wedge made of Murano glass, a product fabricated exclusively from the Venetian Islands of Italy.

Find a pair of Nicholas Kirkwood heels and you'll come face to face with bright, bold colors, muted colors and jewel-toned hues. Its varied colors come in different styles as well - you'll be pleased to find Nicholas Kirkwood thigh-high boots, daring ankle-strapper sandals and even Swarovski-encrusted roller skates.
