Friday Fix | Christian Louboutin ‘Youpi’ Patent Leather Pumps

Christian Louboutin

Christian Louboutin ‘Youpi’, £403

Oh, Youpi. So beautiful. So curvy. So shiny, and sleek and perfect. So everything a patent peep toe should be, in order to be classed as Shoe Kryptonite.

These are definitely Kryptonite for me. I feel like I’ve featured dozens of shoes that are similar to them – probably because I HAVE – but that’s OK, because they’re the kind of shoes I don’t think you can ever get too much of. Sure, black pumps are often tarred with the “boring” brush, but I think these are anything but: they have a sophistication about them which means they’ll give any outfit a touch of polish, and grown-up glamour.

I’ve been wearing a lot of black shoes recently, and have had a pair of black patent peep toes on my wish list for a long time now. I somehow doubt these will be the ones I’ll end up buying – that pesky price tag always gets in the way! – but if I can find a pair that have a small touch of their style, I’ll be a happy Shoeperhero!
