Footwear designer Jonathan Kelsey’s haute high heels are made for strutting. Hailing from the UK, Kelsey spent four years honing his couture cobbling skills at Jimmy Choo before taking on design commissions from fashion houses like Mulberry and Matthew Williamson. On his own since 2007, Kelsey combines masculine, punk and bondage influences to create sandals, knee-high stiletto boots, and other shoes inspired by women rock icons. Case in point: the Amy, an elegant two-toned pump dedicated to Amy Winehouse.
