We’ve seen lots of iconic shoes in tv and in movies, on the runways as well as in magazines. Unfortunately, often, these shoes cost an arm and a leg which is why we can only dream about having them. A girl can dream, anyway, right? Check out these fabulous pairs of iconic shoes that we can keep dreaming of and maybe even keep on getting inspired by.
