The sling back shoes have a stiletto heel and pointed toe. The uppers are covered in black silk satin, and decorated across the ramp and at the throat with a wide strip of green silk satin and matching bow, held in place with a double row of black diamante. A section of leather covered elastic forms the sling-back strap. The heel is covered in purple silk satin, the shoes have a full leather lining and sole, and the top piece is resin.
