Christian Louboutin Griffita, £638.18
Platforms may be far less popular than they used to be, but there are still plenty of them around, and these Christian Louboutin ‘Griffita’ pumps still had the power to turn my head, even although the sole is far higher than most of the shoes that have been making it onto my Wish List recently.
Three things combine to make these awesome:
1. The curved sides. Of course, curvy sides are almost as synonymous with Christian Louboutin shoes as red soles are, but that doesn’t make them any less notable, or any less attractive.
2. The tear-shaped cut-outs around the vamp – such an unusual touch!
3. The lovely, muted red colour, which will be gorgeous for spring, working well with all of those pale, pastel shades. I’ve actually been on the lookout for a nail polish in this exact shade of red for a long time now, and these shoes make me even more determined to find one: it’s a really nice alternative to the brighter reds I usually go for.
One of the things I like about Christian Louboutin’s platforms is that, although they look chunky, they’re always as light as a feather in real life, which will make them that bit more comfortable to wear – if “comfortable” is a word you can really use to describe a shoe with a 5″ stiletto heel, that is!
