Valentino Rockstud sandals | 100mm/4″ heel | shop at Barneys for $1,295

My heart swoons for these new lace-up sandals from the signature Rockstud collection by Valentino. This spring designers debut an extreme gladiator trend seen more extravagantly done by Gianvito Rossi and continued by with the beloved Amazon sandal. I so love this nude sandal featuring corset-style lace-up front, gold-tone pyramid studs, long wrap-around laces and back-zip. You can also find them in a beautiful pale gold at MyTheresa and black at Montaigne Market. Half sizes are available and it’s designed in a flat variation at Net-A-Porter.

These caught my eye recently in a Miami window display. Valentino continues their signature Rockstud collection debuting an open-toe strappy sandal for spring/summer. They feature fiery red leather, tonal pyramid studs, thin t-strap design, small 15mm platform, matching leather insole and thick column heel. Half sizes are available.

You can also find them in black pebbled leather, brown leather, black leather, white leather (with silver-tone studs) or with an extra studded ankle strap (the strappier the better!) in black leather at Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue.

I’m a very gotta-have-it-now express shipping kind of shoe buyer so when I know a style won’t be on my feet until February, March or April I usually wait. A pre-order makes sense when I find that absolutely-in-love (over-the-fence, World Series kind of stuff) shoe that I know is a rare or coveted style only carried at a few retailers.

I receive emails daily from readers trying to find their must-have shoe when unfortunately their size sold out. Pre-ordering is a good way to snag your favorite next season shoe – especially if your size is always sold out or you take a half size like me!

My favorite pre-order potentials for spring are featured below. I also added a few styles from new Pre-Fall 2014 collections which are currently available for a limited time at the pre-order hub, Moda Operandi.
