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!
See, I’d always thought Very Prives were the perfect peep toes, but these are something else! Just gorgeous.
How does this man continue to reinvent the perfect black peep toe? Gorgeous.
