Christian Louboutin Fifi Strass, £2,195
We’ve met Fifi here before, as I’m sure you’ll recall: she’s a Christian Louboutin staple style, and she turns up on a regular basis, in various different guises. Fifi was wearing different clothes on the occasions of our previous encounters, however, which is why she’s appearing here again. I’ll stop speaking about the shoe as if it was a person now, shall I? I mean, that’s creepy even for me…
If Fifi WAS a person, however, I reckon this gold strass upper would be her very best “outfit”. Shiny, sparkly and ever-so-special, these have a 100mm heel, a rounded toe, and a very low vamp, which makes them far sexier than the words “rounded toe” would normally suggest. The fact that these have the word “strass” in the product description, however, is a good clue that the price is going to be high, even by Louboutin standards. Sure enough, for £2,195 you could buy quite a few pairs of high street shoes… or one pair of Fifi Strass.
Which would you go for?
