This week’s Friday Fix is a little bit of a cop-out, because these shoes are nothing you haven’t seen before – probably a million or so times.
They’re also nothing you’re not going to see again – and again, and again, and again – if I have anything to do with it, because, well, look at them. I recently realised that I don’t need nearly as many shoes I used to think I do. In fact, I’d be pretty content with shoes like these – a Pigalle/So Kate/Any kind of high, pointed courts – and ONLY shoes like these, as long as I could have them in a rainbow of different colours. Imagine a shelf full of them – how awesome would that be?
In the absence of that, however, these two shades would be a good start: black and white are a great foundation for a wardrobe, and they certainly look spectacular on these, with or without the addition of the studs on the upper. The studs, however, can’t be ignored, here: they’re a detail which Christian Louboutin loves and uses often, and which bring a little bit of edginess to a shoe. In this case, the edginess isn’t so extreme as to render them difficult to wear: in fact, they do nothing to detract from the timeless quality of the shoe underneath, which is probably why I’ll keep on writing about shoes like these for as long as Christian Louboutin keeps on making them!
