We recommended that you make the most of the back-zip denim shorts from the Vetements x Levis collection with a pair of high heels. Thanksfully our sister site Footwear News dug deep to find just the right ones. Check it out below.

From Footwear News:
Vetements broke the internet Kim Kardashian West-style when it posted a photo this week of its denim collaboration with Levi’s. The Vetements x Levi’s jeans feature a zipper that runs from the top of the butt all the way to the front of the jeans, allowing one to show off their behind if desired.

If you do decide to invest in the nearly-$2,000 jeans, you should choose your shoes wisely. After all, these pants arguably go best with a pert derrière. FN’s tip: The taller the heel, the better, as it forces you to carry yourself with better posture and will naturally lift your behind a bit higher. Christian Louboutin’s So Kate pumps fit the bill since they have a tall, spindly heel and a super-curved arch.

If you’re not keen on such high single-sole pumps, try a sky-high platform such as Aquazzura’s Movie Star red suede platform — it gives you the same height as a pump, but with a bit more comfort thanks to the platform sole.

Clear shoes are a major trend right now, and they’d be a perfect match for the jeans. Manolo Blahnik’s Estro wrap sandals with a clear PVC strap do double duty: The clear detail elongates the foot and makes it appear slimmer, while also allowing the attention to be on the jeans and, well, your tush.

Stay tuned — we have a feeling this wild style could make an appearance at Coachella this weekend. Kylie Jenner, perhaps?
