I’n not sure anything can live up to last week’s Friday Louboutin Fix, but these ‘Pina’ sandals are definitely going to give it their best shot. And while they don’t have quite the WOW factor of ‘Hot Chick’, there’s no denying these do have a lot to recommend them. Let’s see…

There’s the colour, for one thing. I think of all the colours a shoe can be, bright, patent red is probably the most show-stopping of all, and when the upper perfectly matches the red on the sole, it makes for an even bolder look.

There’s the spikes, for another. I know they’re not to everyone’s taste, and I also know I’ve said this before, but I stand by the assessment that no one does a spiked heel quite like Christian Louboutin. Again, he’s used the same colour on the spikes as on the sole and upper, and this technique helps give the shoe even greater impact than a contrasting colour would.

Finally, there’s the shape. A super-slim ankle strap, a high stilleto heel, and a very low-profile upper all combine to create a truly beautiful shoe – and with a 4″ heel, they shouldn’t be hard to walk in, either!
