Christian Louboutin ‘Flueve’ Pointed-Toe Slingbacks, £432

These shoes will inevitably make some of you cringe in horror, while others swoon in delight, and it’s all because of that old issue: toe cleavage. Some of you love it, some of you hate it, but these are designed to showcase as much of it as possible, so if you have both feet (clad in non-revealing shoes, naturally) firmly in the “hate it” camp, these definitely won’t be for you. If you love it, meanwhile? Read on…

These are Christian Louboutin’s ‘Fleuve’ slingbacks, and they’re also available in taupe. In addition to the toe cleavage, these also showcase the very pointed toes that have been back in fashion for a while now, and which are used to particularly lethal-looking effect on these shoes. I love the asymmetric shape of the vamp, which swoops around to form the perfect curve on the side of the shoe. Add a slender, 4.5″ stiletto, and you have exactly the kind of shoe that made Christian Louboutin famous, and which he still does so, so well: a classic pump, which somehow manages to be so much more stunning than the words “black slingback pumps” suggests.
