Christian Louboutin Ginza 140 cutout leather slingbacks

Christian Louboutin Ginza

A dotty design with a difference: Christian Louboutin’s Ginza 140 slingabacksuse cutout circles on the bronze leather uppers to create an vaguely pop-art effect. I love the combination of the bronze upper and wooden heel/sole on these, and think it would make a nice alternative to the ubiquitous “nude” for summer: while these may not immediately strike you as the most versatile shoes in the world, on a foot the effect is actually more subtle than you’d think, with just a touch of pizazz.

These are £535 at Net-a-Porter: click here to buy them.


  • When I first saw them I thought I was ok with them, but now I really hate them: they remind me of industrial copper sheets, perforated leather and Swiss cheese – only the latter of which I enjoy, and only on my burgers, not on my feet.
