For our first Louboutin Fix of 2013, I’ve dipped into the spring/summer 2013 collection, to find a shoe which I think might divide opinions somewhat.
These High Boubou Bazin peep toes have certainly divided mine. From the thumbnail, I thought at first that the upper was gingham, and got very excited indeed. Up close, however, I’m much less keen on this blue/green print, although I don’t dislike it, either. The real feature of this shoe, though, is the ruffle, which sits on top of a high platform slingback:
Dramatic, over-the-top and impossible to ignore, it’s very “Louboutin” and, combined with the blues and greens of the print, somehow creates a watery, ocean-like feel for me. I’d be interested to see these in other colours, but if you’d like to buy them in this one, you’ll need £925, and possibly a lot of patience, because they’re almost sold out at the official site at the time of writing – get ready for some searching!
