Pierre Alexandre Claudius Balmain was a French fashion designer well known for his elegant and sophisticated designs. After his death the company continued to exist and flourished.

The spring 2009 Balmain RTW collection was truly spectacular, but what really caught fashionista’s attention and were a huge success in the collection, were the Balmain Studded Crystal Sandals.

The sandals are amazing and have a certain sexiness. The glamorous rock-chick sandals were a huge success on the runway as well as off the runway. Celebrities have been spotted wearing these beautiful studded sandals everywhere.

The sandals were created by Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain. The Balmain Studded Crystal Sandals are amazingly hot and can be worn casually with jeans or formally with dresses. The crystal studs give a glamorous effect but the design makes them appropriate for casual wear as well.

Celebrities like Rihanna, Molly Sims, Jennifer Connelly and Audrina Partridge seem to have fallen in love with these sandals and we can see why.

The Balmain studded crystal sandals look great with any type of outfit, they are absolutely amazing so if you can afford to buy a pair (about $2000) you will definitely look great and be envied.
