The shoes are part of Ingelmo's new "Made in Maine" collection—which means they're all handcrafted in a Maine factory. And, no surprise, they're also inspired by classic New Englander footwear—with a twist (in this case, a tweak in proportions and the addition of a major platform).

Look for Alejandro Ingelmo's new Made in Maine collection starting this week at stores such as Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, and Harvey Nichols. The footwear will retail from $475 to $800.
