Saint Laurent is well-remembered for its past pieces including the Le Smoking tuxedo jacket, pussy bow blouses, and the Mondrian dress. And with its latest shoe drop, the luxury brand has perhaps secured another collector's item.

Called the Anya 100 Patch Pump Roller, Saint Laurent's latest pair of heels features one wheel on the stiletto point and two more on the outsole, plus a stopper in front. Its upper is stamped with illustrations and quilted with a metallic finish and snakeskin fabrics, keeping true with the brand's sultry image.
The house's creative director Anthony Vaccarello seems to have a flair for impractical yet pretty shoes as seen from last season's Opyum 4.3-inch heel, which might as well be deemed iconic. The heels with wheels have only been rolled out in Europe and will set you back over USD$2600. Insurance, of course, is not included.
It's not the first time that the house released a skater shoe. They've also introduced a pair of skater boots, as seen above. They also have a roller skate sneaker version for men.
