I think I’m love.
These shoes are from Christian Louboutin’s Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, and are yet another example of the “simple” pumps done exceptionally well. Louboutin just keeps outdoing himself in this respect: I keep thinking the shoes just can’t get any better, and then something like this appears to prove me wrong!
Much of the impact of these shoes comes from the asymmetric toe, with its super-low vamp. Although I absolutely love it, I won’t be surprised if I’m in the minority here, because this shoe is designed to show a LOT of toe cleavage, which I know is a big turn-off for some of you. If you can live with that, however, you’ll have an amazingly sexy, classically beautiful pair of pumps, which come in two of the most versatile colours of all: nude and black. (How to choose between them, though? HOW?)
These are £395, which, although not what anyone would describe as “cheap” (Well, anyone other than Beyonce, maybe, or Victoria Beckham…) puts them amongst the lower-priced shoes in the Louboutin range. You can buy Pigalles, Simple pumps and various other styles for this kind of price range, but I think ‘Completa’ has just gone right to the top of my wish list!
