From Matiko, Italy, this is a pair of leather embossed like snakeskin high wedge boot. The total height is about 5". To me, Matiko is right up there with my favorite cool girl Isabel Marant or the boys at IRO. Thing is, Matiko makes quality cutting edge shoes with good materials at about 1/4 of the price.Although these lace up the front, they have a side zip for easy on and off. So be a cool girl without spending $950. Note, I include shipping in my price. These are heavy when in the box, which is how I mail. I take that into consideration along with fees and my cost with tax when pricing. Please, I'm not open to offers at this time.I ship priority mail from my home so you get your stuff fast!
